Every day, I work with clients to help identify their goals and a financial strategy to reach them. I know the process works because I've lived it.
In the 1980s, I left war-torn Sri Lanka and arrived in Canada as a refugee with very little to my name. With saving and planning , I married, had children, bought a house and set us up to retire comfortably. My daughter is a lawyer and my son a recent graduate in aerospace engineering. Clear financial goals and a dedicated plan made this possible for us, and today I help my clients move toward their own goals.
My branch is located in the heart of our neighborhood, and we work primarily with retirees who live nearby. We enjoy hosting office events that are easy for clients to attend and welcome anyone to just drop in as they pass by. The first smiling face you'll see in the branch is one of our branch office administrators – Kay Turnbull, a 20-year Edward Jones veteran, and Laura Campbell.
Our priority is delivering the highest level of service to every client. By getting to know clients personally, I understand not only their own interests and needs but also how they fit into the family picture and intergenerational relationships. As a result, the financial strategies I build are more personalized and relevant, offering greater opportunity for success.
My wife and I are involved in community politics and volunteerism. I currently serve on the Centennial College Business Advisory Council (Progress Campus) and have served on various fundraising committees at the local Centenary Hospital. I served a four-year term as president of the Canadian Tamil Congress and currently sit on their advisory board. I am a proud recipient of the Scarborough Urban Hero award for work with the hospital (2011), the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award (2014) and a 15-year volunteer service award from the Government of Ontario.
My wife and I love to travel and have experienced the cultures of 56 different countries – and counting.
