Stefan Schmidt
Financial Planner
B.A. PSYCH, B.ES.(Arch)
Tech/Design Specialist

An employee since 2001, having transitioned from the architectural industry.

I head up the design team to continually improve the simplicity of our client reporting. Every client is unique and we understand that custom reports can achieve higher levels of confidence in this complex world.

I aim to bring a unique understanding to the financial industry. My education in psychology, architecture/design, computer technology are all instrumental in finding both a deeper understanding of finance but also a critical mind to challenge outdated views.

Coming Soon - a new 'Money Blog' for our site where on a regular basis, I look behind all the curtains of complexity, explore the 'why' and the key motivations to all things financial.

Client Services & Project Manager
Legal/Admin Assistant

An employee since 1998 and worked with Russell for 5 years prior to Informoney Inc.

With my great interest in client experience, I am always seeking new ways that will benefit our clients. I want every phone call, meeting, office visit to be unique  and personal. I have found that clients have exciting talents and/or interests, that more often than not are kept tucked away.

Allowing clients to give voice to these passions brings a great joy to the world.

I'm an up and coming Financial Planner. I recently graduated from Sheridan College and am currently writing my exams to fulfill my financial qualifications for Certified Financial Planner and Insurance License LLQP.

Where we started and how we got here...

Established in 1980, Informoney has evolved from a small tax preparation sole proprietorship to its present form as an incorporated financial planning company. The years from 1989 until 1997 were spent associated with a major insurance and mutual fund company. In 1998, Informoney Financial Planning moved to its own premises and chose FundEX Investments Inc. as our Mutual Fund Dealer in order to begin the process of freeing clients from the steering effects of a commission based industry.

In 2001, we took the next step by introducing The Informoney Financial Program TM, a 7-Step process provided for a fee and focused on Strategy. In a time-challenged world we have the ability to search out and incorporate time-tested strategies and state-of-the-art technology to provide solutions that work. Our clients have the additional luxury of personal attention due to our low client-to-planner ratio. We intend to continue being leaders in the industry and are presently working on products to improve industry accountability. 

Recently, Informoney made the move from the Mutual Fund industry to what is called Private Client Equity. Technology and efficient investments have dramatically lowered the entry criteria so that average investors can now have their own portfolios and benefit from Private Client Equity strategies previously only available to wealthy individuals.
