“Achieve your goals for the life you want to live. Peace of mind and satisfaction are invaluable.”

When Nader began his career in wealth management in 2002, the North American economy was still staggering from the bursting of the tech bubble in 2000.

A graduate in finance from McGill University in Montreal, Nader observed that everyone was narrowly concentrating on investments and maximizing returns. He saw an opportunity to focus on his clients’ specific goals, using highly personalized financial planning and a conservative approach.

A Winning Strategy

Clients loved the strategy and by 2005 Nader’s success provided him an opportunity to manage his own branch.

“It’s important to stick to disciplined processes when investing” he said. “You’ve got to remove the emotion if you want to achieve your long-term goals.”

Continuous Education

While managing an expanding client base and a growing team of advisors (14 currently) Nader continues to study, constantly acquiring valuable knowledge.

He became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® Professional, a Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®), and earned the title of Portfolio Manager, the highest designation awarded by the Canadian Securities Institute.

Personally Speaking

During his hours of leisure, Nader is an avid eco-tourist and adventure traveller. Most recently, he climbed an iceberg in Argentina, took a survival training course in the Peruvian Amazon forest, and backpacked across Vietnam.

To support his balance and focus at work, Nader is committed to an intense physical training regimen. He loves to read non-fiction and treasures his long-standing friendships. According to Nader, “It would be impossible to replicate the bonds created through 20 years plus of friendship. Most know me better than I know myself and I consider them all like brothers.”

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t – you will be right.”
