We understand your goals and dreams are as individual as you are.

Whether you’re starting a new family, preparing for retirement, or running a business, we will work with you or your business to build the financial security plan that best fits your needs.

We will work with you to create a customized plan that helps you manage risk and brings your goals within reach through an integrated planning process.

After evaluating your needs, investment comfort level and life stage, I will recommend those products and services that best help you achieve these goals.

Through comprehensive analysis, in-depth market research and the support of a team of highly-qualified tax and product specialists, I will help you make sense of your options.

Working with you

Financial security planning is about more than planning for retirement or protecting yourself against risk – it is about making dreams come true.

We are focused on helping you achieve freedom and choice at all stages of life. To do this, we use Freedom 55 Financial's planning process, which is based on the four cornerstones of financial security. It is a process designed to help you:

  • Better understand what financial security means to you by reviewing your current situation and defining goals
  • Identify and discuss any roadblocks to achieving your goals and analyze your situation
  • Identify any gaps and build a plan to help you achieve your short- and long-term goals and dreams
  • Review and monitor your financial security plan regularly to help ensure it continues to meet your changing needs

I'll help you understand the choices to be made and the products available to help build a financial security plan to achieve your personal or business goals.
