Victor joined BMO Nesbitt Burns in 1999 through a high school co-op program developed with his guidance counsellor and business teacher. Victor continued working each summer and on school breaks while completing his Bachelors in Economics at the University of Western Ontario. In doing so, he gained a vast amount of industry knowledge by immersing himself within an established investment team.
After graduating from UWO, Victor quickly pursued qualifications in the industry and earned the Professional Financial Planning designation (PFP®), Certified Investment Management (CIM®) and most recently the Portfolio Manager’s designation. These skills along with his adaptable personality have lead Victor to become an invaluable and extremely dedicated team member.
Victor is a proud father of twins (boy and girl) who enjoy making him laugh and keeping him on his toes. He has a very active lifestyle that includes weight lifting, spending time with family and friends and in quieter moments reading a wide variety of authors (from Daniel Kahneman to Peter Bernstein to Dr. Seuss).
