Why Use an Independent Representative?

Independent Representative can offer valuable, objective advice. Financial planning may be easy for some people, but not for others. That’s why it’s important to work with someone who is knowledgeable about the latest in investments, taxes, and insurance, and how they can work for you.

An independent rep. will tell you that the secret to successful planning is setting financial goals and objectives, and then developing, following and updating a plan to make those goals a reality. For example, retirement planning may include a diversified portfolio of insurance and investments as one of the most effective strategies for long-term growth.

An independent rep. can add value to your financial planning by:

  • Providing insight and guidance on the wide variety of products and services available.
  • Drawing on past experiences to guide you through the planning process.
  • Evaluating your personal needs.
  • Helping you design and periodically review a plan that’s right for you.
  • Being objective.


Joël Lemieux, EPC, CEA:

I am a Financial Security Advisor living in the Ottawa region. Since 2008, I was fortunate to help many families and business protect their assets, estates, and income.   In 2019 I completed the Canadian Initiative for Elder Planning Studies (EPC) & in 2022 the Canadian Institute of Certified Executor Advisors (CEA).  These Designations provide me with a much better comprehension of issues that may arise for Elders & Executors.

As a family man with three beautiful & healthy children living in the suburbs, I can especially relate to young families. I understand that the cost of living, mortgage payments, daycare and many other expenditures can greatly affect the financial plan. This is where I come in; by preparing a family needs analysis, I can provide options and advice to meet your current and future needs all within a set budget.
