Since then, he has grown the practice and team significantly.

Simon takes a holistic approach to wealth management and conducts in depth assessments regarding the needs and potential risks facing successful families, professionals, and business owners. Simon places a high priority on understanding client needs first. He does this through the lens of tax & estate planning and providing a high level of service to clients as he helps guide them through various life events to ensure a seamless transition, whether it be, divorce, selling a business, managing an inheritance or adjusting to the financial changes brought on by retirement. Simon’s key roles also include asset allocation and investment selection with a disciplined process for buying and selling North American securities. More recently, Simon has been incorporating various alternative investments and non-traditional, non-correlated investment opportunities to reduce risk and volatility and achieve superior risk adjusted returns over longer periods of time.

Professional standards are high on Simon’s agenda, and he has earned both Chartered Financial Planner (CFP®) and Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®) designations. Simon is also Insurance Licensed which helps round out the wealth planning approach. Simon enjoys working with different charities and over the last 12 years of living in Toronto he has been involved with Sheena’s Place, Regent Park Gala and East Coast Connected.
