"Since getting to know Dan McLaren around 1990 I’ve witnessed his seamless and successful transition from corporate banker to entrepreneurial leadership in the areas of insurance, mortgages and community involvement. My several efforts over those thirty years to lure Dan to Vancouver were in vain. He’s a steadfast, dyed-in-the-wool Prince George fellow. Nowhere is this more evident than Dan’s creation of and maintenance of “The Commonwealth Cup”, perhaps PG’s most iconic charitable event"

Product Review

No 2-clients are alike. During our review we will gather enough information to make thoughtful recommendations based on your mortgage, insurance and investments. In almost all cases we will put together a personalized Discussion Paper that summarizes your current situation and your recommendations for next-steps.
