A little about what you can expect here.

Hi, I'm Derek. I'm a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) based in Winnipeg, and am lucky enough to work with clients across Canada.

Through my journey from Engineering to Finance, I've been shocked by the value of what isn't taught to us throughout school. Regardless of what direction our lives take us, having a solid foundation of financial literacy is so beneficial.

As a Financial Planner, I believe that everyone should know most of what I know. That was the inspiration for building a space where I can share what I know and continue to learn.

I'll be sharing my unique insight and understanding to most things financial, as well as making recommendations for the content that gets me excited to consume and the things I learn along the way.

I won't be focusing on:
❌ Hot stocks (because they cool off quick)
❌ Short term trends (because they don't last)
❌ Or the next big thing (because no one knows)

Instead, I'll be focusing on what actually matters:
✅ Proven investment fundamentals (because they work)
✅ Behaviour that reinforces what we really want (because they help)
✅ Better decision making for our future self (because they matter)

Investing success comes down to doing the little things right, for a very long time. By gaining a better understanding of what those things are, and how we can implement them into our plans, we can do more things our future self will thank us for.
