The Smith Manoeuvre in the Media

Robinson Smith, financial educator, speaker and best-selling author of Master Your Mortgage for Financial Freedom is available for media interviews and speaking engagements. Please contact

In 2006, Robinson Smith returned from China where he was working in investment banking, to Victoria to work with his father, Fraser, the financial strategist who pioneered The Smith Manoeuvre. After joining his father at the advisory, Robinson helped over 500 families implement the strategy one at a time.

In 2018, Robinson sold his investment advisory practice in order to write the follow-up to his father’s original book and reach even more Canadians. Robinson now dedicates his time writing, speaking and training both homeowners and financial professionals in The Smith Manoeuvre strategy in order to continue on with his father’s original mission to give every Canadian homeowner the opportunity to say “yes” to the question, “Do you want to make your mortgage tax deductible?” Robinson has appeared on television, radio, personal finance blogs and has spoken in front of the general homeowning public and to financial professionals.

His new book on the strategy, Master Your Mortgage for Financial Freedom, and the accompanying Smithman Calculator as well as several courses for homeowners and financial professionals, will be released in the Fall of 2019.

He lives in Victoria, BC, with his wife, Heidi, and their dog, Harley.
