Our Team

We are a leading wealth planning organization in Central Canada with over 70 years of combined experience. Together we help prepare and guide individuals and business owners through critical transitions in their lives.

We have assembled a team of specialists that provide our clients with an integrated and comprehensive wealth planning process called  “The Continuous Bridge”.  It is our belief that there is no room for “Generalists” in the marketplace anymore due the continued complexity of creating and maintaining one’s wealth. At Assante, we work closely with our clients’ other advisors to provide a bridge between their personal and business goals.

Senior Financial Planning Advisor, Vice President

As a Senior Financial Planning Advisor with Assante Capital Management Ltd., I have been providing clients with precise investment direction and recommendations for over 21 years. My team ensures that our clients’ portfolios match their financial, tax and estate planning objectives through proven asset-allocation and diversification strategies. I work closely with our team’s financial planners to ensure that all investment portfolios integrate effectively with newly implemented or recently updated financial plans.

I specialize in the unique needs of family-owned businesses.  I target compensation strategies, succession planning, purification techniques/utilizing Capital Gains Exemptions and undertake detailed analyses of shareholder agreements and corporate structures.

I believe that education is a life-long endeavor.  I hold a Canadian Investment Manager (CIM) designation from the Canadian Securities Institute and am a Certified Financial Planner professional.
