What our clients
are saying...

“I have had the privilege of knowing Martin for almost 15 years, and have recommended his services without reservation to many of my colleagues. I can say without reservation that Martin demonstrates a level of integrity, honesty and devotion to his clients that is extremely rare in the business world. He always places his clients' interests above his own, and his ethics are unimpeachable. He brings a breadth and depth of knowledge about the insurance and investment fields that makes him a trusted advisor. Beyond that, he is a true gentleman.”  

~ Dr. Paul Nathan

“Martin was referred to me by a friend and colleague twelve years ago, when my children were very young. He has become both an advisor and friend. He takes care of all aspects of our insurance affairs, from education planning for my children, to my life, critical illness and disability insurance and even our medical aid coverage.

Martin makes a point of keeping up to date with our family’s changing circumstances. I know I can call him when I have a simple question or a greater concern, and he is always ready to listen and will go the extra mile, giving of his time with patience and compassion.

I can trust Martin with my personal affairs, knowing that privacy and confidentiality is a primary premise on which he bases his business relationships. He is always professional and I trust his judgment and integrity to always be in my best interests.

I would definitely recommend Martin’s services to others.”

~ Dr. Farid Boutros

“Martin Lipworth has been handling our life and critical illness insurance for well over a decade. We have the kind of personal confidence in Martin as we would have in a close trusted friend. As a professional, he is exceptionally careful, meticulous and absolutely 100% reliable. He has a thorough knowledge of his products and the industry. We trust his judgment on these matters completely (and very much more than the many other very experienced professionals we have dealt with in this field). We have never felt that any conflict of financial interest has biased his judgment or his advice to us.

Aside from his considerable professional expertise, Martin deeply cares about his clients' needs, and he takes their needs far more seriously than they probably do themselves.

Among other things, we are deeply grateful to Martin for persuading us to buy critical illness insurance, which helped enormously to ease our stress when Karin was diagnosed with serious breast cancer several years ago. And Martin was right there for us in making sure that our claim was expedited smoothly, with his reassuring and empathic manner in our time of crisis.

We would enthusiastically recommend Martin's services to others.”

~ Dr. Ralph and Karin Lewis

"To quote Stephen King, “life turns on a dime”. I knew that it could happen to us, but I never really believed it could. For years, I fought Martin whenever he recommended increasing our insurance coverage. I wasn’t being irresponsible; I had a budget to balance and I didn’t think I could afford it. In particular, I thought critical illness insurance was a luxury we didn’t need.

Fortunately, Martin was able to convince us to take his advice and as a result we had both critical illness and disability policies in place at the time of my husband Paul’s stroke this January. He had no risk factors and a rare presentation - it was like a lightning bolt. The insurance cover has allowed us to focus on his recovery and the well-being of our four teenagers, and put money worries aside for later. It has made all the difference in the world.

I want to thank Martin for his advice and help, and for going far beyond the call of duty. I would recommend his services without hesitation."

~ Dr. Linda Jacobson and Paul Nash

"Martin has been and continues to  be a tremendously knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful resource to me in the often times confusing world of life, disability and critical illness insurance."

~ Dr. Tabo Sikaneta

“Our family has engaged Martin’s services for almost twenty years. In that time we have sought and received Martin’s council on life, disability and critical illness insurance coverage. We have always acted on his sound advice and continue to feel secure and well protected by the products that we have purchased. Martin is a conscientious advisor who has always acted with the utmost concerns to respect, privacy and discretion in dealing with our personal matters. Although we never look forward to submitting a claim, we can sleep at night knowing that we are well covered for such an event. Martin has been and continues to be a big component of our financial planning and insurance needs.”

~ Stephen Morris

"I’ve had critical illness and life insurance through Martin Lipworth for the last 7 years and I can’t say enough about the excellent service and resulting peace of mind that he provides.

Long after I bought the coverage, and as a member of the Canadian Forces, I was deployed to Afghanistan. Having Martin look after my insurance needs was one less thing that I had to concern myself with, knowing that if something ever were to happen to me, my family's welfare would be looked after.

Since returning to Canada and expanding my family I have always been content with the knowledge that my insurance needs were tailored to what I required, and Martin’s excellent follow up ensures that when my family situation changes, no matter what, my family is always taken care of.

I am writing this recommendation for Martin Lipworth based on the insurance policies which he has helped me make qualified and important decisions on. Throughout the process he was extremely patient in taking time to explain everything to me and my family, he helped us pick the best policies based on our income and lifestyle. We had many questions for him over and over, which he answered thoroughly and in lots of detail. Martin was always prompt with meetings and on time, he was extremely professional in all of his dealings and an absolute pleasure to work with. Taking out insurance policies is a huge decision for anyone and I would highly recommend Martin to any of my friends and family and hope to work with him again in the future when we look at taking out additional policies. Service is the key to dealing with people and he certainly offers that to anyone.
