After graduating from the University of Toronto, Laura decided to pursue a career in financial planning. She now holds her Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation and has worked in the industry for over 5 years as part of a thriving financial planning practice. Laura is passionate about helping people make the most of their money through proper planning and professional advice. She knows that putting a plan in place early on is essential to reaching one's financial goals. Laura has worked with Benchmark since 2013 helping in the design, implementation and ongoing service of group savings programs. She works with plan sponsors to create plans that provide true value to employees at all levels: from entry-level employees to executives. She also helps these same plan members understand how their group plan can help them achieve their personal retirement goals. Thanks to Laura's expertise as a financial advisor to individuals, Benchmark is able to provide a unique personal add-on service to select clients: one-on-one counselling for business owners, managers and key employees to help them integrate their group savings plan into the broader context of their overall financial picture.
