Years Financial Services Experience
We are pleased to announce that Lyle Konner has joined KTJ Financial Inc. To learn more about the Lyle and the KTJ Financial Team, please visit the KTJ Financial website.
As President and Founder of Konner & Associates Financial Services Inc. (1978), Lyle has dedicated his career to developing effective solutions for individuals, business owners, and professionals in the areas of Income Replacement, Risk Management, Wealth Transfer, and Tax-Efficient Capital Growth and Preservation. Lyle has been featured in such publications as the Investment Executive, Vancouver Sun, Toronto Star, and Montreal Gazette; discussing such topics as Tax Deferring, Investments, Health Care, and Long-Term Care.
Throughout his career in the financial and insurance services industry, Lyle has made a commitment to quality work. Through consistent effort and reputation for outstanding service, he has built a solid clientele and expanded his business through referrals from satisfied clients. Lyle has been selected for memberships in various performance based industry councils, including MDRT and Court of the Table. Lyle is a member of Advocis and his designations include CLU (Chartered Life Underwriter), CPCA (Certified Professional Consultant on Aging) CHS (Certified Health Insurance Specialist) and EPC (Elder Planning Counsellor).
Mutual funds are provided through my mutual fund dealer, Quadrus Investment Services Ltd., and Lyle can offer mutual funds in both British Columbia and Alberta.
He is a past President and a charter member/charter president of two Rotary Clubs: White Rock Millennium and White Rock Peninsula PHS. He actively practices Rotary’s motto – “Service above self”. Lyle is hands on with implementing Rotary projects such as: putting in clean water systems for remote villages in Guatemala and Mexico, delivering containers of Wheelchairs to Mexico – giving the “gift of mobility” to children, as well as being involved with Polio immunization in countries such as India and Ethiopia.
More locally, Lyle supports the South Surrey/White Rock Learning Centre (alternate form of high-school), as well as supporting the South Fraser Women’s services. He is past President of the Young Men’s Adventure Weekend Society of BC, a group of men dedicated to mentoring young men ages 12-17. Lyle believes strongly in the values of this organization and has been honored to watch some amazing transformations over the years.
Lyle’s hobby is Bee Keeping. He is a member of the BCHPA (BC Honey Producers Association) as well as 2 local Bee Keeping associations. Starting out with 2 hives 7 years ago, his apiary has since expanded to 80 hives. Having grown by catching a few “swarms”, buying a few “nukes”, and “splitting” a few hives, he has certainly been “stung” with a passion!
Lyle resides in South Surrey, British Columbia with his wife, Patricia. They have two adult children, Jared and Channing, and their West Highland White Terriers. Lyle enjoys golf in his spare time – but will not quit his day job.
When my husband was diagnosed with life threatening cancer the planning we had done with Lyle all fell into place. The Critical Illness insurance policy paid out a large lump sum of tax free money which helped us as a family have quality time together while we could. The Disability insurance and Office Overhead covered all our personal bills and kept our Business open so we did not have to lay off Staff. At the end of the day, the life insurance proceeds did not replace my husband, but, allowed us as a family to regroup and get on with our lives.
The Fraser Valley Dental Society has a longstanding partnership with Mr. Lyle Konner of Konner & Associates, a full service insurance and financial planning firm.
We chose Lyle to be the Consultant for our Group RRSP He provides quality advice and personal planning services to each of our management employees who request the support.
As a Financial Advisor, Lyle has kept me well invested in both Mutual Funds and Insurance for many years. My prime objective was to take care of my wife and three children and have a decent income at my retirement. I have found Lyle to be very competent and trustworthy and, together, we have accomplished my objectives. Disabled, as a result of a medical accident, my savings have enabled me to equip my home with wheelchairs, ramp, and stair glides so that my wife and I can live comfortably. My various insurance policies will leave a nice legacy for my children, thanks to Lyle.
Lyle Konner has been our Advisor now for 26 years. We certainly never predicted that we would need to draw on disability benefits, but thanks to Lyle’s foresight and expertise, both professional and personal bills were covered when serious illness struck. We trust Lyle with our future
