Agriculture continues to be one of, if not the most important industry in Alberta…yet we have seen drastic intergenerational changes. Being raised on a 4th generation crop and cattle farm in Southern Alberta, I have the ability to work with you in developing a financial plan that focuses on successfully transitioning your farm…whether that means succession planning or sale planning. If you are expanding, or have current debt that is insured through your bank or lending facility, allow Wiest Insurance and Investment Management the chance to shop out your insurance needs and bring back a cheaper and better solution!
