How We Can HelpGet in touch

Paul Lamarche, PFP®

Financial Advisor

Paul has been offering investment and financial planning advice to his clients for over 20+ years. He first began his career in the Canadian banking industry both at Scotiabank and Bank of Montreal. During his time spent there Paul worked diligently to increase his credentials and earned the Personal Financial Planner (PFP) designation. However, Paul quickly learned that he could do better for his clients outside of an industry that puts shareholder interest ahead of the client. By leaving this highly restrictive industry Paul was able to ensure his primary focus could be spent on servicing his existing clients rather than pressured to force new sales and push unnecessary proprietary products.

Paul's primary goal now is to ensure that all key aspects of each client's financial plan are addressed in a manner consistent with professional financial planning practices. He provides independent financial advice to ensure that every financial plan he prepares for a client is based on unbiased research. Paul values a client's trust above everything else. Once a client decides to work with him, he continually works hard to deserve their trust.

Paul and his wife Tina have two children and like to call the Hawkesbury area home.
