Vantage Planning is different than most financial advisory practices out there. I focus on a fee-based structure that doesn’t require you to have a million dollars before I can help you.
My planning process revolves around your situation, your values, your goals and what you want out of life. The conversation does not revolve around products, but your life.

Frequently asked questions
Is there a minimum to start working with you?
No there is not. As I am partnered with many financial institutions to help provide certain services and products, I can get paid part of my fee through commissions. This allows me to keep my services affordable and removes the need to have minimums.
What if I don't need help on an ongoing basis?
Ongoing financial planning isn't for everyone. Many people would prefer to handle their finances on their own, and just need a second opinion.
Where do we meet?
I am based in Vancouver, BC with an office space in downtown Vancouver and an office space in East Vancouver. I meet clients personally in the lower mainland and can meet clients in other parts of Canada through Zoom or Google Hangout.
When is the best time to meet with a financial planner?
It makes sense to meet with a financial planner when you have a specific financial or life goal you want to plan for. Even if you don't have a specific goal, it makes sense to meet with a planner 2-3 years before any major life transition you expect (ex. - buying a home, having a child, starting a business, heading into retirement).
