As a Financial Advisor, my focus over the past 23 years has been to help clients reach their full financial potential. Wealth and Risk Management are the building blocks of this focus, but financial education is the cornerstone of my approach. Financial literacy is critical for clients, as it enables them to be full participants in every aspect of their Integrated Financial Program. Ensuring clients “know their money” ultimately contributes to both financial security and peace of mind. My financial services firm First Capital Financial represents 250 family groups managing over $90 Million in assets under administration. Every client comes from word of mouth referral, where in many cases I represent 3 or more generations within the same family. Our firm’s niche is working with members of Toronto Police Service (TPS) and the Toronto Police Association (TPA), where more than 25% of my clients are with either of the two organizations. I am a Financial Advisor with Manulife Securities Investment Services Inc., regulated by the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA).
