A history of building long-term relationships and wealth.
A heritage of excellence in financial planning.
Retirement Navigator was founded by Doug Dahmer, a Certified Financial Planner and Trust and Estate Planner with over twenty-five years of experience in the Canadian Financial Services industry.
A firm believer in the adage that, “our lives are defined by the sum total of the choices we make”, Doug founded Retirement Navigator™ to help Baby Boomers make better choices when making the tough decisions they will confront as they transition from their accumulation (saving) years to their drawdown (spending) years. Choices which, if poorly made, could significantly impact their enjoyment of the second half of their lives – at a time when they have little to no opportunity to recover from them.
Doug’s strengths as a planner started long before he entered the financial services industry.
Following university, where he earned both an Honours and a Master’s degree in Business Administration with a major in strategic business planning, Doug spent 15 years building long term strategic business plans for several large, well-known corporations.
The proven ability to help you reach your goals
Doug’s move to the financial services industry was motivated by his recognition of the huge disparity that exists between the disciplined, long term planning approaches deployed within the business environment and the often superficial, short-sighted planning approaches used within the consumer financial services industry.
Understanding that the needs of those looking for guidance on how to best fund their lives after work were not adequately being served, Doug then chose to set out on his own and launched Retirement Navigator™.
His breakthrough thinking ultimately led to the development of powerful planning tools and the proprietary C3 Retirement Income Planning Process™ to help his clients make better choices. Choices that could increase your net worth and cash flow by hundreds of thousands of dollars during your retirement, giving you the clarity, confidence and anticipation you deserve.
