Announcement!

Years of study, exams and experience have culminated in the attainment of my designation of Portfolio Manager.


As I look for further ways to enhance the efficiency of my practice and utilize my new designation, I will be introducing additional investment strategies using a Unified Managed Account (UMA) platform. This platform allows me to create a suite of investment mandates specific to a client's risk profile, account size and overall financial needs while reducing overall management cost to you by taking advantage of the scale the platform provides.


Benefits:

  • Access to a wider range of investment products at institutional level pricing
  • Access to additional professional asset managers hand selected by me.
  • Periodic rebalancing as per our agreed upon mandate

I will be reaching out to any clients I feel will benefit by this new offering. However, if this interests you, please reach out to my office to arrange a meeting.


2023 Tax Slips - please note that clients will receive tax slips from NBIN (January to July 2023) and CIIS (July to December 2023). All 2023 T4 slips should be in hand by the end of February 2024 and 2023 T3 and T5013 slips by the end of March, 2024.

The good news is that this is not a black-and-white topic. If you fail to save as much money as you want, then it just means that you’ll have a little less and life will go on. It doesn’t automatically turn your retirement into a disaster. Bob & Lisa are learning they just need to learn to live within some new boundaries.
