Hayleigh plays an essential role in my practice. She is really the chief operations manager. In our highly regulated environment, we are required to document accurately your investment preferences and indeed all information in support of your Investment Policy Statement (“IPS”). The IPS is the document that instructs me, as the portfolio manager, how I can invest your accounts. The documentation can sometimes be a painful process, but Hayleigh ensures that the job is done efficiently, concisely and perfectly.

Once onboard, Hayleigh intently listens to client requests and finds a way to accomplish what needs to be done as quickly as possible, thinking outside the box when necessary. Easy, personal, and effective interactions are Hayleigh’s goal.

Hayleigh comes from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia and she initially developed her superb client skills in the personal health and beauty industry. She completed the Canadian Securities Course and the Life License Qualification Program and is registered as an Investment Representative through IIROC, our regulator.
Away from the office, Hayleigh pursues her interests in cooking, personal fitness and hair styling.
