Jeff Horne, BA, PFP, CIM®, FCSI 
Vice-President & Senior Investment Advisor, Portfolio Manager

As an Investment Advisor at BMO Nesbitt Burns since 1997, I have been successfully helping our clients achieve their financial goals.  Along with my team at Horne & Associates, I assist clients with investment advice and portfolio management as well as retirement and financial planning.  A life-long Edmonton resident, I attended University of Alberta before pursuing a career in investment management.  I am able to provide advice on a wide variety of investment options such as managed portfolios, separately managed accounts (SMAs), stocks, bonds, Exchange-traded funds (ETFs), mutual funds, income trusts, Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) and options.  But most importantly, I continually monitor and manage investments for our clients and provide updates and recommend changes to their portfolios whenever warranted.  My attention to detail and calm manner provides my clients with a high level of confidence and comfort.
