Nader Hamid

“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.

I love helping people.”
