Connie Cavanagh
Certified Financial Advisor

I am a PFP Certified Financial Advisor with more than 35 years of experience, and am passionate about helping you define your goals and working with you to build an achievable, understandable, flexible personal investment and insurance plan.

Kevin Kranzler, B.Mgt
Financial & Employee Benefits Advisor

I am a fully qualified Life and Accident & Sickness Insurance Agent. I provide Life, Health, Critical Illness, & Long term Care Insurance, Group Benefits Packages, and Investment Products specific to each of my client’s needs, both personal and corporate.

As an Investment and Insurance Broker, I have access to products and services from all of the major Insurance companies. When my client's have a specific need, ie: life insurance, we first establish what type of policy suits their needs the best, then I go to each of the major insurers on behalf of my clients to compare pricing. By doing this I save my clients time and money!

Lawren Guldemond
Financial & Life Insurance Advisor

Why I love my job: in a society full of advertising that's constantly urging people to impulsively spend all their money now (and then spend more on credit), I have a job where I get to help people prudently save up money for the future. It's a good thing to do.

What I do: I specialize in helping people attain and enjoy a comfortable retirement. I do that by giving them guidance to make the right investment and insurance decisions now, so that down the road they can look after themselves, and their family – whatever is important to them – with justified confidence that their money will last, even unto a ripe old age.

My philosophy on life: It’s good to be alive. Every day is a gift. Never nurture bitterness - forgive others, often and sincerely. Count your blessings, and give thanks to God and your fellow man for every little kindness.

Random tidbits about me: My wife and I have five delightful young children. We live in a small town outside Lethbridge, since moving from my hometown of Hamilton in 2012. We’re thankful for our great big backyard full of great big trees, and cheerfully singing birds.
