I hold the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation. I help people with their Retirement and Education Savings, with their Insurance needs, as well as Estate and Tax reduction strategies. I work with a number of different Insurance Companies, Banks and Trust Companies, and Mutual Fund companies. If you need a product or service from Canada Life or Manulife, Fidelity or RBC, Home Trust or Coast Capital Credit Union, I can help you. I do not work for the companies I deal with, I work for my clients. This means I can provide the best product and services for Your Needs, wherever that may be.
My job really is to act as your coach. I'm not the player, that's your job. I can give guidance and suggestions, provide sources of information and try to help you to make the right decision for your needs. The more you bring to the table, the better for you. Looking after your finances is really not that difficult, however it can be time consuming. If we work away at it a bit at a time, most people can get themselves on track fairly quickly. Initially you may not have the time or expertise or desire to take care of all the details. If I do my job properly, over time you'll begin to understand how all the different parts of your Financial Strategy fit together.
Generally there is no charge to you for my services. I am compensated by the Insurance and Investment companies that I work with. Before any purchase of a product occurs, we will have discussed any and all costs that my be levied to you, either directly or indirectly. There are no secrets or surprises. With your investments, my income is directly tied to how well you do with your investments. This means we both have a vested interest in you doing well over time. A Win-Win situation.
Financial Advisers can often look similar. Reviewing our points of differentiation will give you the understanding of just how our process will give you the greatest chance of success.
We're here to help all of our clients and their unique needs related to their retirement and financial help. No future is too big or too small for us, our goal is to simply help create a positive future for all of our clients.
We understand that planning for your future is scary and uncertain, especially in today's economy. But, rest assured that in our hands we've helped clients with all types of backgrounds successfully and happily retire with their financial hopes and dreams met and, often exceeded. We want to help make that dream become a reality for you and your family too.
