Marie Prefontaine, CFP®

Partner & Advisor | Marie@fdgteam.com

I am a Certified Financial Planner with over 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry. I work closely with clients who care about their financial future, and assist them in developing and implementing their own unique financial plans.  

My focus is to provide financial planning services, strategies and products for my clients so they can achieve their goals. I view every client as unique and I approach the financial planning process according to my clients own needs and comfort level.

I have a strong commitment to continuing my education which I believe adds value to my clients. I share this knowledge with my clients so they can make informed decisions, specifically tailored to their situation.

Any activity in relation to my title as Partner of Financial Destinations Group is related to my insurance business only and is not the business of/or under the supervision of Quadrus Investment Services Ltd. 

Margaret Charest

Partner & Advisor | margaret@fdgteam.com

I joined the FDG team in 2012 and advise businesses, individuals and families on how to provide protection from “life’s many risks”.

From personal experience, I know that life has a way of taking some unexpected turns. Unfortunate events can happen to anyone and, when they do, a sound financial plan is one thing that can help. Life, disability and critical illness insurance are important options to consider to help protect one’s health and financial security. My goal is for each client to have confidence in answering these questions “If something should happen to me, will my family be OK?” and “Will I ever have enough to retire and how much money do I really need?”

Having built strong relationships with business owners, I love helping companies develop tailored group benefit plans that will help attract and retain quality employees.

Born and raised in Edmonton, I have worked in the media, the mortgage industry and also manage a real estate portfolio.

I am also a connoisseur of fine wine!

It brings me great satisfaction to help clients reach their financial goals. I believe in delivering a strong level of education throughout the planning process, helping clients to make informed decisions.

Beginning in 2019 I have helped clients with their dreams of home ownership working as a mortgage specialist. 

As a new member to the Financial Destinations Group Team I am now able to help my clients with financial planning and wealth protection. I strongly believe in education, and implementing strategies to help individuals, business owners and families achieve their financial goals. 

I have a passion for helping my community. For the past seven years I have helped raise money in support of The Special Olympics Foundation as the volunteer Event Director for Edmonton.

Shane Ohrt

Advisor | Shane@fdgteam.com

I have always had a great passion to serve my friends and family with the utmost respect and compassion. So it was only fitting that I join the financial services industry, and helping others with the greatest team.

I started my financial journey after graduating from NAIT for finance and joined with Freedom 55 financial. They gave me the skills, and helped develop the advisor I am today. With the proper guidance I have been able to grow my business and new relationships beyond my expectations.

I am here to help you grow not just a full and rounded portfolio, but a long lasting relationship as well.

I enjoy building long lasting relationships with clients and being there to help them through every part of their financial journey by providing a variety of strategies that suit their needs.
