Olivera (Hollie) Winkelaar

Navigating the complexities of the financial world can often induce fear and uncertainty. Having faced the realities of entrepreneurship and the financial pressures that come with it, I understand these challenges personally. As a Financial Planner at Sun Life, I aim to alleviate these pressures and fears and provide a pathway to financial security and growth.

Moving to Canada when I was 14, I experienced the challenges of adapting and rebuilding life in a new country. This journey instilled in me strong resilience and an understanding of diverse perspectives. This greatly informed my approach to financial planning.

My diverse professional experiences, spanning various roles within the banking sector and managing my own business, have equipped me with a unique perspective on financial matters. This allows me to genuinely understand each Client's financial concerns and devise strategies tailored to their needs and objectives.

The value of continuous learning has been a guiding principle in my career. With a Financial Diploma, a bachelor’s degree, a QAFP™ certification, and currently pursuing a Financial MBA, I bring a robust and holistic approach to financial advice. This academic expertise and practical experience enable me to provide Clients with well-rounded financial advice.

In my role at Sun Life, my aim is to help Clients shed their financial fears. By working together, we can develop a financial plan that respects your present circumstances and future ambitions. I look forward to being part of your journey toward financial stability and success.
