  3. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  23. Thanks for the comprehensive listing but I'm a little bit confused about this "fee only" title. While checking out websites of the companies listed in my area (Ottawa), I noticed that at least two of them also sell mutual funds. I'm looking for a "fee only" planner that only sells "advice" and not particular products. It seems to me that a company that charges a fee and also sells a product (mutual funds, annuities, life insurance, etc.) shouldn't be called "fee only". Or am I missing something?

    Reply

    • Ron, I think you're right. If it's "fee only" it's "fee ONLY". Otherwise you're paying a fee…and a fee.

      Reply

  24. Is this list up-to-date? Ihave tried to contact "Williams Financial Strategies" in Oakville several times but the contact information does not appear to be valid.

    Reply

    • Hi Bryan,
      We are constantly adding new planners to the list and updating info when planners provide us with an address change. Having said that, we'll look into this. Thank you.

  25. So far I have failed to find a fee only financial adviser. I think I understand why since it is purely performance based and perhaps these fee only advisers are afraid that there advice may not outperform the same money invested in bonds or saving accounts over the same time period. If anyone knows of a fee only adviser in Toronto please contact me.

    Reply

  26. If you prepare another list in the future, I would like to see a listing of Fee Only Advisors who are also licensed to sell investments [but who are not tied to any particular companies] and what they charge to prepare the plan, AND implement the plan.

    Also I did not see a single fee only based advisor listed here for Peterborough ??
