David has also achieved many designations over his financial career, such as Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Canadian Investment Manager (CIM), and a Certificate in Advanced Investment Advice. In 2008, David was named a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute (FCSI), the highest distinction bestowed by the Canadian Securities Institute.
Dave is a proud dad to two amazing and intelligent young women. And when he’s not providing unbiased, financial guidance for clients, you can find him on the roads, chasing down his marathon personal best, or trying to convince the family’s golden doodle that it’s OK to run a little slower on training runs.
