For this comprehensive wealth management, Rod's minimum portfolio size is $1,000,000 per client household.

Soon after graduation, he began his financial services career at a leading Canadian chartered bank, and became an Investment Advisor in 2000. He holds two prestigious designations available to Canadian Investment Advisors. They are the Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute (FCSI) and Certified International Wealth Manager (CIWM).

When not in the office, Rod enjoys regular exercise, most often competing in kettlebell lifting and taking part in various classes at his gym. As a passionate motorcyclist, and when the time permits it, he enjoys touring the west coast of Canada and the U.S.A. Perhaps most of all, he relishes the company of his old dachshund, Hugo.
