Bryan Sommer

President 

Bryan’s tax planning expertise as a Chartered Accountant, combined with his skill as a Certified Financial Planner, separates him from other Financial Advisors. His specialized skills help fill the gap between a typical Financial Planner and an accountant. Being a top rated financial planner requires taking responsibility for consistently finding financial solutions that fulfill the life essentials. BRYAN’S WHY: At a formidable age, Bryan experienced a life changing moment that strongly shaped his views on life.

“Knowing that life can be short, I’ve kept my promises and stand here doing what I love as a Financial Planner where I get to help my clients enjoy life without the worry of money”.
