At D. Robinson and Associates, we do things a bit differently.

Objective and unbiased

First, our focus is on process, not product. We are never going to sell you anything except the value of good advice. Our approach is to provide advice, share knowledge, and help you make decisions about your finances in a completely unbiased and objective way.

We aren’t tied to any product line nor do we earn commissions through sales. Our individual clients simply pay for the time required to review their financial affairs and develop an appropriate, workable, and effective plan.

This independent perspective is also important to our corporate clients. Corporations, government departments, unions, and other organizations investing in employee education are confident of our independent perspective and value the experience we bring to our seminars.

In 2006, PSPC Pension Centre instituted a mandatory certification program for any presenters who wanted to deliver the Public Service Plan Member Education Session.  Melody jumped at the opportunity.  Early in 2007, she completed that certification process and has maintained it ever since.  This allows her to deliver the information, as set out by the Pension Centre, to federal public servants across Canada.  She has delivered in excess of 100 sessions regarding the Public Service Pension Plan.

Melody’s understanding of pension, insurances, and counselling provide a knowledge and expertise that bring an added dimension to our Federal Government Pre-Retirement courses.
