Wealth management that evolves as your needs, priorities and circumstances change over time

As an Investment Advisor with TD Wealth Private Investment Advice, I believe that the only relevant measure of success is helping you achieve the goals that matter most to you. You decide where you want your wealth to take you, and then I’ll design a path to help you get there. With the support and resources of TD Bank Group, along with my personal and professional network, I have obtained a sound understanding and knowledge base specifically pertaining to Medical Professionals. Understanding the importance of specialization, I have tailored my business practice to primarily focus on meeting the ever-changing and complex needs of professional clients.

My style and belief to wealth management follows a disciplined and forward-thinking approach. Integral to my investing philosophy is the importance of mitigating risk while navigating through today’s evolving and challenging markets. In my experienced opinion, providing downside protection is the cornerstone that supports the growth of capital by means of compounding returns over time. I like to call this: “winning by not losing.” Before I can design and implement a unique and tailored investment strategy, the most important step in my process is obtaining a thorough understanding of your needs, goals and aspirations. Through ongoing assessment and review, my goal is to provide you with peace of mind knowing that a professional set of eyes is overseeing your hard earned wealth. Being your trusted advisor is a privilege, building our relationship with honesty, transparency and genuine care.

Prior to joining TD Wealth Private Investment Advice, I worked for TD Asset Management in a role providing investment recommendations and support to Investment Advisors across various financial institutions. I graduated from McMaster University with an Honours BA in Economics, and recently completed my MBA in Finance from McMaster University as well. I’m currently pursuing the recognized Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®) designation, as I see great value in continuous education. With the complexity of today’s investment landscape, I am committed to staying abreast in order to strive to provide my clients with unprecedented service and advice.
