Why work with an advice-only financial planner? 

Life doesn't always follow a linear A-Z path.  Stuff happens, money is complicated, and you'd like an independent second opinion.  I help people avoid these costly mistakes:

  • Trying to "beat the market" with stock picking and market timing. 

  • Eroding your wealth with high investment fees.

  • Being over or under insured.

  • Paying too much tax.

  • Not having a retirement plan.

  • Not understanding how our own biases and behaviour can lead to poor financial decisions.

  • Not having a plan to deal with the day when you can’t make decisions (estate planning).  

There’s a lot of noise out there when it comes to financial advice.  What really works? Reduce stress and save time by working with a real human fee-only Certified Financial Planner who places your needs first.  

You don't have to figure all this out on your own. 

Get a professional look at your situation with no hidden agenda or sales targets.  Imagine how it would feel to have your money simplified, organized, and automated with a smart, customized financial plan.

Focus on what really matters 

  • with some coaching and guidance setting up your plan, you can rest easy and focus on the important things in life: family, friends, work you enjoy, hobbies, and passions.

  • I take the time to understand your values, goals, and preferences.  We then build a customized plan together that's specific to your needs.

  • I show you how to automate your plan so you'll spend less an hour a month on your finances. 

  • check in yearly to know you're on track.

I understand the pressure of managing your household’s money.  Let me show you a better way to set this up.

Kids, aging parents, a mortgage, career decisions, starting a business, pension choices, dealing with a disability, unexpected emergencies, and the hectic pace of modern life can quickly overwhelm us.  I get it and face the same challenges. Money is a central part of our lives, however most of us didn’t learn practical financial skills at home, school, or work.  


In my early working years, I was confused by the sales driven, high fee financial services industry in Canada.  I started reading about evidence-based investing and the effect of fees on our portfolios over time. I learned about smart personal finance and behavioural strategies to simplify my money and focus on living a good life.  I eventually decided to make it my next career and mission to help others reduce financial stress and provide independent advice to Canadians.

I can teach you a system that I’ve coached dozens of people through that will help you implement an evidence-based, low-fee investment strategy, minimize taxes, and automate your finances so you can still spend money on things you love without feeling guilty.  With this approach you’ll also consistently work towards your goals whether it be a secure retirement, annual vacation fund, or supporting a loved one.

Future value of investment fees saved by my clients to date = Over 3.1 million

Time saved and reduced stress with smart financial plans = Priceless.

Marco, IT professional

Jason took us from feeling overwhelmed and worried about our financial situation, to feeling completely confident in our plan moving forward. He did an amazing job of first understanding our future goals, and then crafting detailed, nuanced advice around them. All of his deliverables to us were extremely organized and comprehensive, and he was a pleasure to work with in general. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for fee-only advice.

I'll analyze your documents and we'll meet several times to create a plan that will work for you. No cookie-cutter planning! This process is tailored to your needs. 


Save Time, Reduce Stress, Enjoy Life.

Once your smart plan is in place, rest easy knowing that your money is aligned with what's important to you.  Check in once in a while.

At ABZ Financial Planning....

my clients want to enjoy life while being responsible and in control of their money.

To do that, you need an independent financial planner who will take the time to truly understand what’s important to you and then help you build a custom plan that places your best interests first. 

The problem is most people only receive advice from licensed investment, insurance, or mortgage reps whose interests may not be aligned with yours and it’s hard to know if you’re doing the right things with your money.  You get busy and it’s easy to push all this aside and feel confused and overwhelmed.

I believe that every Canadian deserves some form of unbiased advice to help them navigate this complicated part of modern life and reduce stress.   

I understand how hard it is to manage a household’s finances while working full time, raising kids, maintaining the home, dealing with aging parents, and planning for retirement.  That’s why I researched and developed strategies that help my clients simplify and automate their money.  With a smart, individualized fee-only planning you can potentially save hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary investment over a lifetime, ensure your have the right of amount of insurance, minimize tax, and feel confident knowing that an independent professional is keeping you track to achieve your goals. 

Here’s how it works:

1. Book a complimentary meeting to share what’s on your mind when it comes to your money and what you’re looking for.  I’ll explain how advice-only planning works and answer any questions.  If I think we may be a good fit to work together, I’ll send you a transparent quote of exactly what it would cost to build your initial plan. No hidden fees!

2. Build a customized plan.  Just upload your financial information to a secured shared folder and I’ll get to work analyzing your situation.  We’ll meet 3 times over 3 months to put together your initial plan.  For those who want to slow it down, you can spread out the first plan over one year with an onboarding fee and monthly subscription.  

3. Implement and Enjoy Life.  Complete the recommendations and clear written action steps on your own or sign up for continued support (limited spots available).  Once your money is automated with an evidence-based plan and aligned with your values and goals, go enjoy life and spend less than an hour a month on managing your finances.  Check in annually or when things change (and they will!) to stay on track.

So, to reduce ongoing money stress and confusion, book a free introductory meeting today to learn how fee-for-service only financial planning can help you align your money with your values and goals.
