Kali Cortus

I take pride in educating Clients and recommending customized insurance and investment solutions. My goal is to help them protect and grow their wealth. Since joining Aurora Financial Solutions in 2009, I have taken on roles at many different levels within the business.

Because of that, I can provide many services.

I mainly work with business owners and families that have a need to protect their future. I also help business owners with group benefits. I am honest, open and loyal to Clients, helping them achieve their goals.

Since 2003, I have enjoyed living in Tisdale along with my husband and our two children. I like to give back to the community. I am a member of the Tisdale Middle & Secondary School's Community Council and Tisdale Minor Hockey.

Alex Topolnitsky

I am a proud member of the Aurora Financial Solutions team. My focus is making Clients feel comfortable with the financial planning process. I enjoy helping Clients have confidence in their future through a sound financial plan. By looking at the whole picture, I can help Clients create a plan that helps them reach their goals.

I have achieved my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® (CFP®), Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), and Elder Planning Counsellor (EPC) designations. I specialize in working with:

  • business owners looking to minimize the taxes they pay and maximize their tax-efficient profits,
  • individuals close to/entering retirement who would like to minimize taxes throughout retirement and at death and
  • young families who would like to make sure they can retire with confidence.

I am knowledgeable, approachable, enthusiastic and driven. Most importantly, I built my Client-base from referrals. Clients trust that I will look after them throughout their life.

I moved from Calgary to Saskatoon to play Huskies Men Soccer at the University of Saskatchewan.
