TK Financial Group puts clients’ best interests first
For Darcy Cullum, Owner and President of Ottawa Mould Craft, it was discontent with the typical insurance salesman relationship that led him to TK Financial Group.
“Attentiveness to our needs was lacking,” Cullum said of the service providers with whom he was accustomed to working. Each year, they would wait until the last minute to come knocking with policy renewals that invariably included rate increases. This left little time to research the market and see if there were other solutions available that would better serve Ottawa Mould Craft’s needs and budget.
But a conversation with Milan Topolovec of TK Financial Group that began with insurance products quickly grew into a broader discussion about tax planning and understanding what programs Ottawa Mould Craft needed to protect its owners for the long-term.
“With his connections in the industry, Milan was able to get the best players to the table and put together a package that served our needs and fit our budget,” Cullum said.
The value of such strategic planning proved itself barely a year later, when Cullum’s partner in the business unexpectedly passed away.
“I have to say that without Milan pushing us to go through that process, we might not have had the proper insurance in place when I lost my partner,” Cullum said. “He has the clout, the respect and the phone numbers of the right people, as well as the tenacity and work ethic, to make things happen.”
If Ottawa Mould Craft had remained underinsured, based on the fair market value of the company, the family of Cullum’s deceased partner would have been left without the financial resources to ensure their future. And due to the terms of Ottawa Mould Craft’s shareholder agreements, that shortfall for the surviving family could have had costly legal ramifications for the business.
“Year after year, Milan continues to service your requirements and understand where your business is going to offer the right solutions in a format that’s understandable to the layman,” Cullum said. “He’s just on the ball.”
