“Sitting down with Nick I was quickly able to see how his expertise and understanding of my profession could be of benefit to my finances. I did not want to incorporate as I heard it was a tedious process and did not have the time. Nick not only understood my concerns but developed an effective and easy plan to move forward with incorporation. Nick and his team have allowed me to use my limited free time to focus on things I enjoy instead of spending time trying to figure out best practices for incorporation etc. Nick, Joe and the entire Bakish Team consistently go above and beyond for my requests.”

"I have worked with Joe since 2015, and have been nothing but fully satisfied with his service. He is dedicated, knowledgeable and trustworthy. He explains things very well and is on top of his game. He helped me develop not just an investment plan but a comprehensive financial strategy tailored to my goals. He and his team are always available and fast to respond (usually within hours to a day). Joe keeps it both professional and easy going, and is an absolute pleasure to work with."

“We have trusted Nick and his team with our financial planning since 2009. We chose Nick initially because of his expertise working with medical professionals. Over the years we have come to appreciate that he brings a lot more than a few specialized skills to the table. Nick understands us, and he works hard for our best interests. He has respected our concerns, goals and priorities while being honest, direct and perseverant in his communication and guidance. Put more simply, he’s saved us from making some bad calls, he’s provided the right investment tools for us, and he’s never tried to tell us what to do.”  

 Dr. Dao Nguyen and Luc de Montigny,
Assistant Professor, Department of Medicine, McGill University
