Langley Financial PlannersWe’re here to simplify retirement planning

Planning for retirement is exciting. But it can easily get overwhelming. And that’s why we’re here: we take on the complicated aspects of retirement planning so you can have the freedom to dream and live the life you want.


Our GoalThat you enjoy a stress-free retirement

Your personal finances should not be a source of stress. We’re here to make sure that you’re taken care of through all phases of life. How do we do that? By working with you to build a financial plan that makes sense for you. We then implement it, taking the administrative burden off your shoulders so you can focus on what matters most.

We have been working with Jay and his team for several years and couldn’t be more pleased, we made the right decision.  We feel very confident that he is looking after our investments with our best interest in mind.  Jay communicates well and is quick to answer any questions or concerns we have in a clear and professional manner using layman terms.  Jay worked with us to personalize our portfolio and during the transition of moving our retirement investments from Canadian Banks to amalgamate into Cedar Rock without us ever feeling pressure to do so. Jays’ attention to detail and personal nature has made us thankful for making the move to Cedar Rock.


Core ValuesAbove all else, we put people first

Proactive. Not Reactive

Benefit from our straightforward, personal approach to managing your finances. Life happens. Stocks crash. Economies boom. We’re always looking ahead, planning for various contingencies to make sure you’re in the best position to reach your goals—no matter what.

Improving Life For You

Working together, we set measurable targets and build plans that produce results. But the key to success for us is building strong relationships. It’s by getting to know you that we’re able to provide the best advice for your personal circumstance and achieve the best results.

Sharing Knowledge and Expertise

On the one hand, the more you know, the better decisions you’re able to make in the way you manage your finances in your day-to-day. On the other, information overload is overwhelming and freezes people. We’re here to provide the right information at the right time and answer any question you have so you can thrive.

Between my wife and I, and with me being one of those people who seemed to change careers every 10 years or so, we had accumulated a trail of pensions and investments that needed some serious organization. Being in the market for a financial adviser, Jay was recommended to us by a trusted friend and we couldn’t be more pleased.  Knowledgeable, professional, and very approachable, Jay knew all the right questions to ask.  He quickly and efficiently gathered all of our loose threads into an efficient and productive investment machine.  Highly recommend.
