Since 1994, I have been recommending proactive strategies for business owners and families wanting to simplify their financial affairs and increase their quality of life through an integrated approach to wealth planning. Retirement Planning, Investment Selection, Education Plans, Estate Planning and Preservation are some of the ongoing services I provide.
My discliplined investment approach and professionalism has earned me a reputation for being financially astute and client-focused. My clients appreciate the valuable advice and regular meetings I provide to review their financial progress. I believe in continually improving my knowledge through education and have earned the following industry designations:
- CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (CFP) designation as governed by the Financial Planning Standards Council of Canada. A CFP Practitioner is one of the most respected financial planning designations in the profession and requires adherence to a strict code of ethics that mandates each CFP Professional act as a fiduciary in every relationship. I encourage you to view the following brochures which explain the Financial Planning process in greater detail. https://www.fpsc.ca/consumer-publications
