Rod Major is principle with the Major Advisory Group.  Rod has over 25 years of experience in the Investment Planning industry.  His focus is on wholistic, risk-reduced financial planning for individuals and businesses.  All his plans include an investment, tax, estate and insurance review.  Rod helps his clients plan for short and long term goals; from building their business, to savings for the education of their children, ultimately to their own retirement and estate distribution - in as tax-efficient a manner possible.  His love of economic and market research allows his clients to place their focus elsewhere.  If there is one over-arching focus - it is to manage the financial plans under his care with consistancy and with as little voaltility as possible, while pursuing each individual's unique set of goals.  When not working, Rod is taxi driver for his son Jack's hockey career; and when time permits, he likes to travel.
