because only with all of the information 
can you make the right choice for you and your family.

If you're tired of being treated like a number . . . or your Advisor keeps changing companies or branches . . . or you feel like your financial future deserves more than a cookie cutter approach, 
 give deGraaf Financial Strategies a call - we'd be happy to earn your business!
Léony deGraaf Hastings has grown up in the financial industry, with her father being a distinguished advisor for 45 years. Learning the business 'through osmosis' over the years, Léony began her own financial career in the family firm over 15 years ago and has since built her own successful practice in Burlington where she resides with her husband and children.  

Appreciating the time she spent with her grandparents as a child, and losing her Mom to breast cancer in 2000, Léony found herself gravitating towards helping seniors and assisting seniors and their families with complete retirement and estate planning.  Recognizing this passion, Léony took specialized courses to earn her Elder Planning Counselor designation and is qualified as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) - the international gold standard in the financial services industry.

As an EPC & CFP, Léony’s approach is to educate and assist retirees in simplifying their season of life, by providing clients with the  information, choices and tools needed to make wise financial decisions.  When necessary, Léony utilizes a team of experts, from lawyers and accountants to senior financial advisors and fund managers, to assist in case consultation. Léony's role is that of a quarterback for your finances, bringing in the solutions you need to secure your retirement, from the best people and companies who provide them.  No two people are alike and therefore no two financial, retirement or estate plans are alike.

Giving back to our community is important to Léony, who volunteers her time as the past Chairperson and current member of the Burlington S.A.L.T. Council (Seniors & Law-enforcement Together) educating seniors on crime-prevention alongside the Halton Regional Police.  She is the past President of the Burlington Newcomers Club and Léony is also an Executive member of Joseph Brant Hospital’s Charitable Gift Planning Advisory Council. A regular contributor to the financial columns of Silver & Gold Magazine, Autumn View - the OPSEU Retirees Quarterly and interviewed as an industry expert by MacLean's Magazine, Reuter's, Advocis & CARP to name a few.
  
Most recently, Léony was voted one of Burlington’s
‘Favorite Financial Advisors’  
AND 
 ‘Best Insurance Brokers’ 
in the 2014 
Burlington Post Reader’s Choice Awards!

This is the 6th Year in a Row voted a 
Best Financial Advisor in Burlington!
