Team 2021.jpg

Our goal at Avanti Planning Group Ltd as

Life Insurance Brokers/Consultants is to assist firms of

all sizes in every industry to design and provide group

benefit plans for their employees that are appreciated,

affordable and sustainable. For firms with existing benefit

plans we will advise and recommend the necessary

changes which will reduce your present claims experience

and premium costs. Due to the escalating rates of inflation

for medical and dental costs even the largest employers require a

Broker with not only product knowledge, but with creative ideas and

solutions in order to maintain a comprehensive cost effective benefit plan for their firm. These strategies will assist you and your firm to get control of your insurance costs.



We utilize the LifeGuide life insurance software to assist us to locate the best life insurance premiums available for our clients. It is updated every month and provides the premium costs for all of the life products offered by the top 40 life insurance companies in BC. Comparisons show that premiums can range as much as 150% among BC’s insurers for the same policy product. We shop the markets for you to locate the best rates.
