Client Testimonials

"Derrick is the best. He is hands down the most ethical advisor I have ever talked to. He gives great advice and caters it to you so you're not getting the same pitch as everyone else. You are getting advice that was meant for you and your family. Highly recommend him." - Dave


"Jessie is very knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to work with. Thanks again or all your help Jessie." - Amanda


"Jessie was a huge help, and broke down everything to make it easier to understand. She had lots of information and opened my eyes to things I haven’t thought about before! I highly recommend her." - Chelsea


"Derrick has been an excellent resource for me when planning my investments and finding insurance products for my family. I love that I have found an insurance policy that will not only protect my family in the event of a medical emergency, but also pay back a portion of my contributions for my children. Derrick has also been very helpful finding the best portfolios to invest my savings into and I am confident in his recommendations. Derrick is always available by phone or email for questions or just a chat. Any of my concerns he cannot answer, he is quick to look into and get back to me. I would absolutely recommend any young family looking to set up for retirement, life insurance or investment portfolios speak to Derrick to help get started." - Kelly
