As a Registered and Certified Financial Planner we are uniquely qualified to help you take control of your financial future in one of 3 ways:
We encourage a completely transparent way of doing business. As such, we operate on a fee-only basis for our services.
It’s often easier to describe what financial planning is by saying what it’s not. It’s not about selling you an investment or an insurance policy.
Fee-only Financial Planning is exclusively about advice, answering questions and solving problems. If you have an issue that is a problem, then you need a plan of some sort to fix that problem. If you’re wondering how to do something, then you need an assessment of your alternatives and recommendations as to which alternative best suits you. If you don’t know whether you’re on the right track or not, then you need a financial plan to help you figure that out. None of that has anything to do with you buying an investment or insurance policy. It’s all about the advice.
With Fee-only Financial Planning, there will never be a discussion about a particular product or investment. Fee-only Financial Planning means that you know how much you are paying and what services you will receive in return. Most importantly, Fee-only Financial Planning creates a relationship without any potential conflict of interest and means that your entire financial picture is considered as opposed to just focusing on investment management.
We can advise clients with respect to their investment portfolios when requested to do so. We have a number of different investment options that we can offer to support your financial plan. Our focus is on achieving the correct investment diversification strategy and minimizing costs.
Any discussion on this topic will include a discussion of the costs related to the management of your portfolio – what they are, how they are charged and what it means to you. You may learn that fee-based investment advice is right for you (and possibly less expensive.)
This is a specialty within Financial Planning. Our separation / divorce support focuses on helping clients understand their new financial situation. It also focuses on helping clients understand the long-term implications of the division of assets.
With our help you can better understand the implications of the decisions you are being asked to make during the separation / divorce process, gain the knowledge you need to move forward after separation and clearly understand your new financial reality.
A Financial Divorce Specialist does not provide legal opinion or advice. It is our role to assist, collect data and evaluate possible scenarios and prepare future financial projections. We can work closely with your divorce lawyer if requested.

We hired Jacquie in late 2011 to prepare a complete financial analysis and investment plan for us. We received a detailed plan that was customized for our situation. It was complete and easy to understand. Not only that, but Jacquie took the time to explain the report step by step and was open to questions along the way. We have peace of mind knowing we have a plan for our retirement, but most importantly, we know we can turn to Jacquie at any time to ask questions or get clarification. It is truly refreshing to know that we have an advisor who reviews our portfolio on a regular basis and gives us her recommendations. We like the fact that Jacquie is very knowledgeable and approachable. She takes the time to answer our questions and has always made us feel like an important client even though our portfolio is only an average size. We trust her advice and appreciate the personal service we have received. Jacquie is foremost a professional who cares about her clients. She is very approachable, and has taken the time to get to know us and to listen to our goals and answer our many questions.
I was very fortunate to have come across Jacquie Skinner (Premier Financial) during a stressful separation (Family Law). As the Respondent in a high income case, Jacquie's financial planning knowledge assisted me in preparing my case to demonstrate that the Applicant was not in need of further spousal support. The outcome of the case was very favourable for me. Jacquie's expertise, credentials and support are assets as an expert witness, if required. She is highly recommended.
We are most pleased with your detailed outline of our financials and suggested breakdown for our retirement planning. We felt your unbiased evaluation and recommendations as a fee only planner hit the nail on the head.
After feeling disappointed with my previous financial advisor, I requested Jacquie’s financial services. After an analysis of my portfolio she presented different recommendations and scenarios that fit my particular situation. Her advice is keeping me on track to reach my near and future financial goals. My knowledge of finances and economic manners is also getting better thanks to her weekly Market update emails. I felt she understood my financial goals, I believe that with her advice I can make them happen too.
While acting as Power of Attorney for my mother I consulted Jacquie for a second opinion about financial planning issues.
Jacquie quickly provided a broad overview of my concerns, printed specific examples to show the different paths I could take and offered her professional opinion on recent market trends, clearly demonstrating her wealth of experience and knowledge.
She also highlighted and summarized important points to conclude our meeting. And Jacquie did it all in one hour. I was then able to ask informed questions and deal confidently with my mother’s financial planner. It was definitely money well spent.
Jacquie was prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with on her fee for service basis. I would highly recommend her services whether you are entrusting her with your entire financial planning needs or are seeking a trusted, experienced ‘second look’.
We do not have much of a pension but do have capital so we have to plan meticulously for our financial future after retirement. Trying to sort out the many financial services and plans offered by banks and insurance companies can be daunting. So we went for third party advice to help sort out the mounds of data the financial service sector gave us. Jacquie Skinner became our third party advisor and acted in a prompt and professional manner to help us sort out what financial plans make sense. She is a reliable professional who gave us invaluable guidance. Worth every penny.
