Alternate Wealth Management Programs to Create and Maximize Your Retirement Income - Tax Free – See Astra’s Blog

John Lindsay, FLMI, MBA
MacDonald MGMT
Principal Financial Analyst and Strategy design and implementation

John has been working in the field of tax free exits since January of 2000 though out Canada. He recently expanded into the USA. John works exclusively with private business owners in search of tax free exits of capital strategies. John is principal and Sr. Analyst at MacDonald MGMT partnering with major banks and insurance companies to provide these “tax free” strategies. These strategies will be pre-approved by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). 

John understands high net worth individuals face unique challenges. With Astra’s SuperMax and MiniMax programs, he shows you great opportunities and how to protect your equity. Using tax-exempt insurance as a core strategy, John will introduce effective ways to build and protect your wealth. Two things are crucial to his approach: 1) making sure clients understand each potential solution. 2) keeping the value accumulated in a business or portfolio in the hands of the people who created it.

John has been previously engaged by two Canadian chartered banking institutions for analysis and consult of private company financial results and strategies. John has been engaged by Canadian banks to assess potential fraud of Client Companies.
John developed a “Capital Analysis Review©” financial tool that not only shows Business Owners the why, but also the solutions behind becoming liquid, and exiting their companies tax free. This has opened up some eyes in the privately held business world both here in Canada and the United States.

John has been invited to use his analysis by two of the Big Banks here in Canada to validate their importance and role in operations with their business owner clients.
