WHAT SETS US APART?
Historically, Canadians have had access to high-quality and personalized financial advice, usually through a bank or an independent investment dealer. Both of these business models rely on selling the customer financial products. Under this model, the advisor is generally a salesperson and may not always provide unbiased advice.
Our model is to offer unbiased, independent, objective advice to ALL residents of Ontario.
Fee structures were designed that are unlike the traditional referral fees/sales fees / trailing commissions that can bring a bias to an investor's advice.
WHAT WE DO
We offer sound advice on how to lower fees, pay down debt and save to reach your short and long term goals.
We want to help you so you are not intimidated in dealing with banks' sales people and how to open a discount brokerage account.
We do not accept referral fees or commission from third parties; this is a choice, not a requirement.
