Financial Planning For Albertans
Let's face it: No one likes to feel stupid - especially when it comes to their money.
While the building blocks of a solid financial plan are easy to find online, if you don't have the time or interest to put them together in a way that applies to you, where do you go for financial advice?
Have you ever gone into your bank looking for help making (and sticking to) a budget and walked away with a regular contribution to your RRSP and a new line of credit instead? That is because bank employees are tasked with selling you financial products, not giving you financial advice. Sure, they can give you some pointers, but individualized advice on how to pay down debt, reduce fees, and spend your money in a way that will help you meet your goals as quickly as possible doesn't make the bank money, so their business model is designed to try sell you a product, whether you really need it or not.

First Foundation's financial planning services are just one more way that we help our clients Own, Grow, and Protect.
