CIBC Financial HealthCheck helps 2,000,000 Canadians prepare for their future

'Saving for retirement' top of mind for clients who have completed a CIBC Financial HealthCheck

TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - With retirement planning a key focus for many Canadians, and boomers in particular, it is no surprise that saving for retirement was the top goal for many of the more than 2,000,000 CIBC clients who have completed a CIBC Financial HealthCheck. Second to retirement planning, was saving for a home and paying down debt.

The CIBC Financial HealthCheck offers Canadians an easy way to start planning for a financially secure future. First, it helps them determine where they are now and where they want to be. Then, with the help of their advisor, they work through specific scenarios based on what's important to them, like paying down their mortgage or saving for their child's education. Clients walk away with a personalized report that addresses their needs and acts as the basis for ongoing conversations with their advisor to help them put the right solutions in place for reaching their goals and improving their financial health.

"We're very pleased that our advisors have been able to help more than 2 million clients better prepare for their future since we launched the CIBC Financial HealthCheck in 2005," said Victor Dodig, Executive Vice-President, CIBC Retail Markets.
