“I met Randy at a business event and he raised the subject of Critical Illness insurance which I had been considering for some time. He reminded me that my Professional Corporation could purchase the plan on my behalf but he went on to explain that there could be a return of all the premiums should I never fall ill. This made the strategy very tax efficient. Randy followed up diligently for a number of months while we tried to schedule a meeting. When we finally met, Randy was fully prepared with a number of recommendations and it was easy to make a decision given his experience and research. I fully recommend Randy, with National Best Financial, when it comes to life insurance strategies for business owners.”

“When Prestige shareholders had questions about Key Person insurance and Buy/Sell agreement funding, Randy was a valuable resource to make sure we understood the strategies and put the right plan in place. He was patient and never pushed us or rushed us to a decision. His follow up was excellent. We value his ongoing service and advice. Highly recommended”

Next Step...

“I have known Randy McCord for several years as a very knowledgeable and experienced provider of life insurance products for small and medium-sized businesses.  After I referred him to a senior tax lawyer here in Calgary, I have heard nothing but praise for Randy’s expertise in tax planning strategies using life insurance products.

So I naturally considered Randy and the National Best Financial Network when it came time to choose a Group Benefits Plan for the employees of my growing law firm.  I asked my Executive Assistant to research the available options, including National Best.  Randy worked closely with her to provide us with a choice of plans that could work for us.  She in turn carefully compared what National Best could provide with the plans offered by other providers.

Randy was able to provide a choice of plans that could work for us and we were pleased to discover that the National Best programs were very competitive with those provided by an industry association.  Randy answered our many questions and provided us with all the information we needed to feel comfortable with the option we chose.

The icing on the cake came during our recent efforts to add a senior legal assistant/paralegal to our staff.  We were told that our employee benefits plan was very generous and it definitely helped us to recruit a very talented individual.   

Good job, Randy!”

He was able to drastically increase my coverage, at very little additional cost.
