Ed Rempel in the Media

I am a popular financial blogger with 25 years of experience as a fee-for-service planner professional and 36 years as a tax accountant.

My “Unconventional Wisdom” blog, YouTube channel & podcast:

My mission in life is to educate Canadians about what really works to achieve financial security & freedom.

My blog is a unique voice on among financial blogs. I have a ton of real-life experience having written thousands of comprehensive Financial Plans. A prolific writer, I am passionate about sharing my insights. Disillusioned with the “conventional wisdom” often espoused by financial planners and the media, I show you financial strategies proven to provide results over time. I steadfastly dislike “financial quackery” – financial advice that’s really just a sales pitch – and “placebo advice” – bad advice meant to make you feel good.

“To have unconventional success, you can’t be guided by conventional wisdom.” – David Swenson

I often guest post for leading financial publications & websites, and have been interviewed for many articles.
