Plant the seed of financial well-being

Plant the seed of financial well-being


Fee-only financial planning. We do not manage money. We do not sell products. We provide unbiased advice.

Actionable Plan

At Forest Financial Planning, we equip you with an actionable plan. Your financial plan will be tailored to your situation, and presented in a well detailed yet clear manner.

Compensation Structure

Our compensation is as transparent as can be. Our only source of revenue is based on the hours we spend on your financial plan. Before we begin working with you we will provide a firm quote for your project and only bill according to our contract. Our conversations with you are not spent trying to sell products or attract more assets, but rather spent educating and giving advice according to your specific goals, financial situation and risk tolerance. We are compensated for the time we spend on your financial well-being. That’s it!

Financial Education

Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge to implement your tailored financial plan with confidence. Throughout your experience with Forest Financial Planning, we will always put a focus on financial education. We also offer virtual personal finance courses to help you take control of your finances with confidence. Whether you are just starting out, or approaching retirement, there is a course for you.

Central Location, Virtual Meetings, Available Evenings And Weekends

We can meet in-person or virtually. We offer both on-going planning as well as one-time projects. We are located in Centretown Ottawa, at the corner of Bank and Albert Street. If downtown is not convenient for you, we can meet virtually, or at your home, a coffee shop or other location of your choice. We can also accommodate your schedule with evening and weekend meetings to fit into your life.

For Everyone:
No Net Worth Or Income Requirements

Whether you are looking to get started on the right foot, or need help to make the best of your complex financial situation, we can help. We make advice available to everyone!

Take Control: Invest with your self-directed account

With continuously improving technology and online financial resources, we believe that markets are more efficient than ever. Many research papers from top universities provide strong evidence that active investment managers rarely outperform their appropriate benchmarks, which is why we are strong advocates of low-cost, easy to use, index tracking ETFs.
