Wealth Advisor & Portfolio Manager

Speech bubble picto


Since his arrival at National Bank one of his long time dreams was realized, he became a Portfolio Manager and was able to manage investments on a discretionary basis. Steve believes this is a win/win for his clients, it stream lines his ability to make changes and monitor clients' accounts, it aligns his and clients performance, and it also means more time communicating with clients about what he sees in the markets. The extra time also means more attention is given to the planning aspects of client's lives, something that in the long run is just as important as investment returns. Steve believes having a properly formulated plan mitigates short‑term volatility in the markets and ultimately leads to the piece of mind that everything is on track. He doesn't feel his job is done until every aspect of clients financial lives have been addressed whether its insurance, an estate plan, or something as simple as making sure they're sent a few extra dollars for an upcoming trip.

Steve graduated from Saint Mary's University with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree and soon after began his career in the investment industry. Three decades later and stints at Blue Chip firms along the way, his journey led him to National Bank Financial. Steve is the holder of Chartered Investment Manager designation and is life insurance licensed.

When Steve is not in the office, this true family man enjoys spending time with his wife Christine, two sons, and one grand‑daughter. Steve is an avid golfer and can often be found on the links of his home club Ashburn. A former goaltender his hockey days are few and far between, but he will still lace up the skates when the opportunity presents itself.
