Robert Smith Financial is a fully integrated financial services company operating at 5 George Street in Markham, Ontario. Investment products and services are offered through Scotia Capital Inc.
We take pride in having earned the right to assist over 300 clients with their money and financial goals.
We take greater pride in the fact that our client base has grown NOT through marketing campaigns, but by focusing our efforts solely on client needs. Following this approach, we are grateful to have received so many unsolicited referrals from our happy clients. We do not suggest we have line-ups at our door, but the quality of our work has always kept us very busy, and continues to.
Our advice is truly comprehensive, encompassing multiple elements of finance including investments, taxation, estate planning, and debt management. We know that your financial security is greatly enhanced, and our advice is far more effective, when we are able to consider ALL of the areas.
