FAQ

Why pay for financial advice?

Often, advisor fees are embedded in investment products and most people don’t realize they are paying thousands of dollars each year. Compounded over your investing future, these fees can significantly reduce your net worth by tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. I am a fee-only advice-only planner - this means I charge an upfront flat fee for advice, and help minimize the unnecessary fees you're paying for financial products.

What is a fiduciary?

The fiduciary standard legally binds financial advisors to act in the best interests of their clients. Financial advisors with the CFP designation, like myself, are subject to this fiduciary duty.

What are your qualifications?

I have the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designation and the Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®) designation. I also have 7 years of experience in the world of finance, including in investment banking, impact investing, in the digital asset industry, and finally, in personal finance. Connect with me on Linkedin.

What is expected of clients?

Clients have an important role to play in the success of the engagement by providing complete and accurate information regarding their personal and financial situation.

What's your privacy policy?

All information, analyses, and conclusions will be kept strictly confidential. It will not be shared without your consent, unless required by provincial or federal law (i.e., if the feds are after you).

Is there a refund policy?

If you’re not happy, I’ll issue you a 100% full refund.
