His management background has encompassed extensive experience in Compliance, Advisor and Branch oversight.
In his 20+ years in the financial services industry, Philip has endeavored to bring his own perspectives on the short comings of a predominantly sales-driven industry as experienced in a career spanning multiple recessions and market downturns, economic and political turmoil, and a media machine that has become the provocateurs of financial stress and misdirection.
“Too many Canadians rely on the skill of their advisor to deliver superior returns and to give them financial confidence,” Philip explains. “Our goal is to empower clients to focus on the factors within their control. This truly makes the difference between financial dependence and financial freedom. You want to live well, retire comfortably and provide for loved ones regardless of market performance and global factors. And of course CRA will always want a part; we need to make sure that it’s a fair share.”
