Ian started his career at National Bank in 1997 and joined National Bank Financial in 2001.  His high level of expertise in portfolio management and risk management, coupled with his financial markets knowledge, means that he excels at developing investment strategies adjusted to the needs of a broad range of clients.  What’s more, he has a knack for figuring out clients’ actual risk tolerance – truly an art.  This enables him to establish optimally tailored portfolios for our clients.  As someone you can trust, he is devoted to our clients and takes pride in the quality service that the VP Group provides.  His gift of simplifying concepts using plain language is unparalleled and allows clients to better understand the world of finances and thus participate in the development of an investment portfolio most suited to their situation.  On a personal note, being sensitive to the cause mainly for being a father of four, Ian is brave enough to abseil down 22 storeys each year for Drop Zone VP for the benefit of the Quebec Society for Disabled Children, on top of being part of the organizing committee.  Ian serves on the Board of Directors of the Bruny Surin Foundation in addition to contributing to several other charitable causes.  Of note is the honourable mention Ian earned in his completion of the Canadian Securities Course (CSC).
