What Clients Say

Richard has been our financial planner for over fifteen years during which time he has provided us with excellent support in developing and maintaining our plan. We have been very impressed with Richard’s responsiveness and willingness to investigate our specific requirements and provide recommendations on how they could potentially impact our portfolio.

Margaret & Al, Ottawa

A recent business change meant we were able to move my retirement date forward. Our family has been working with Richard’s team since 2000 and we needed focused help. With pages of questions Richard worked through each one with patience and expertise. Through multiple meetings, emails and phone calls we were helped with adjustments to our plan. In addition to Financially Sound’s planning, prompt and knowledgeable service Richard provided us with all the support needed to make the transition to retirement a fun and secure one.
