Joel Van Gaalen – CFP

My commitment to you and your family is simple:

I will care more about you and be more personally devoted to your financial success than anyone you’ve worked with before.

As a Certified Financial Planner Professional®, I strive to contribute to one of the most valuable and straightforward relationships in my clients lives. This relationship is based on trust and for the past 15+ years this has been the focus of all my interactions with clients. At Rivershore Wealth Planning we do our best to live out Proverbs 22:1 “A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches.” We feel very blessed to have a calling where we get to help others achieve their goals & dreams and also do well for our families and the causes we care about.

My wife and I have lived in the Fraser Valley for most of our lives and are blessed to have 3 beautiful, energetic children that keep life very full. We all love being outdoors, enjoying this amazing area we are fortunate enough to call home. We also enjoy playing many sports, board games and RVing. We are also blessed to be a part of a wonderful church community that loves and supports us in the good and rough times. We hope and plan to honour God in everything we do!

Ashley Visser – Administrative Assistant

*currently on maternity leave

I have lived in Abbotsford my entire life and have been married to my wonderful husband since 2016. I attend church locally and actively participate in my church community. From 2017 – 2019 I attended UFV part time and gained a certificate in bookkeeping. In my free time I like to knit & crochet, and go on hikes with my Australian shepherd, Ginny.

“Joel has been our Financial Planner for over 10 years and we have found Joel to be very personal, honest and easy to sit down and talk to about what our goals are and how we can plan for the future. He always fits into our schedule and we enjoy sitting on the deck and discussing what would be beneficial for us as he understands our personal needs.”

I have known Joel for almost 10 years. He always acts in my best interests and keeps me informed on how my funds are doing. He is proactive and works with me to get the most returns on these investments. I would not hesitate to recommend Joel in the future.
