About this website:
The Term Guy is operated by Glenn Cooke. As The Term Guy, Glenn provides information and (strong) opinion only, directly to consumers. If you choose to submit your contact information through this website, Glenn will attempt to connect you with a licensed life insurance broker who may contact you for marketing purposes. Glenn may charge the broker a flat fee for this service, with the fee being unrelated to whether you choose to purchase insurance. Glenn derives no compensation from the sale of life insurance.
Glenn has been involved in the life insurance industry since 1986. During that time he has pioneered the ‘non-face to face’ life insurance sales model, and led the way on connecting advisors and consumers online. Formerly a top insurance advisor, he no longer sells life insurance, nor is he licensed to do so. He has been quoted in the Globe and Mail repeatedly, appeared on Gail Vaz-Oxlade’s Radio show twice, and been quoted in numerous books including Preet Banerjee’s book Stop Overthinking Your Money. He is the co-author of the book “Beginner’s Guide to Saving & Investing for Canadians’ and has been published on pretty much every Canadian financial blog of note.
Personally, Glenn lives with his wife and kids in rural SW Ontario. He is an active yet ponderously slow long distance runner. He is an active volunteer in his local community, currently president of a community service organization. His passion for life insurance extends to his hobbies, where he is completing an undergrad degree in math and actuarial science at the University of Waterloo.
