Our Leadership

I first met Duane in Vancouver as we happened to be neighbours at the time. As my corporation grew, I needed to ensure that the growth was used in a productive manner. Duane showed me how I could not only use tax efficient strategies to build my wealth, but ensure my retirement and family are protected. Duane continues to add value and great advice to my financial plan. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my future.
