About me

I joined iA Financial Group in February 2003. I was first attached to the Montréal-Maisonneuve Agency, then transferred to the new Duvernay (Laval) Agency in 2012. I also have almost five years' experience as Sales Manager (2006-2011).

I serve approximately 1,000 people and help them determine their financial goals with respect to retirement savings and insurance. I propose a savings strategy that focuses on divesification and discipline and that is based on the client's investment horizon, risk tolerance and total assets. I have $18.5M in assets under management.

I'm not only a financial security advisor, I am also a father, owner of a home in the suburbs and a taxpayer. I have lived same experiences as my clients, which enables me to step into their shoes when giving them financial advice.

As a certified professional with the Autorité des marchés financiers, I encourage you to confirm the validity of my AMF certification

Savings and retirement

Mutual funds are based on a simple principle : pooling your money with that of many other investors in order to offer you access to global markets and a large selection of investments, as well as the flexibility to invest whatever you want, whenever you want.

Why work with an advisor?
