Peter Fraser

Peter’s characteristics: Engaging, passionate, caring, knowledgeable.

Would you believe?
Peter went to school to be a Hotel Manager! Trained by the Four Seasons Hotel group, he can dry clean, fold napkins, handle food for masses, and polish silver with the best!

Peter’s Money Personality?
“I enjoy seeing the things that money can accomplish: helping, providing, enabling and empowering. These apply to the personal hopes and dreams that I have, but also those of others.  Money can help and hurt. It can be incredibly positive or very negative. It can build and it can destroy. I try to remember that money is just a means to an end (our ‘betters’) and to love people and use money, not find that it is the other way around”.

What’s Peter’s ‘better’?
Our first better was to help in the education of our sons. That turned out to be a bigger ‘better’ than we thought, like most goals do but we made it through. Now, my personal ‘better’ is to pay off our mortgage. Professionally, my better is to invest in a great team that will grow an enduring, great enterprise that genuinely helps people AND along the way has fun doing so.

Wade says… “Peter loves sitting down with people and getting to know them on a deeper level. Whether it is finding out details to help you improve your management of money or swapping stories from watching the grandchildren over the weekend: he is really in his element when having meaningful conversations with clients.”

Heather says… “Peter loves talking to people whether that be 3 or 300, building lasting relationships and accomplishing a better future. He is passionate about helping clients achieve the very best with money and in working with and developing the team. He is a talented and caring leader and would like to bring the ‘fun’ back into growing money for people. He also enjoys his darling little granddaughters who have completely captured his heart.”

Wade Bedard

Wade Bedard

Wade’s characteristics: Quiet, diligent, thoughtful, detailed.

Would you believe?
Wade almost failed grade 12 math (finishing with a 51%). You needn’t worry though, he was a straight A math student in University.

Wade’s Money Personality?
“I am a little bit of an efficiency blood hound. I try to be as efficient with money as possible. This is a little bit different from being frugal because it doesn’t mean I don’t spend money, it just means I try to only spend it on things I deem worth it.”

What’s Wade’s ‘better’?
“I like the outdoors and I really enjoy having some property to tinker around with. My family has a cottage over on the Quebec side with two acres that has been my outlet for years. My better involves something similar – a cottage or a hobby farm with some property – to live on and work. I’d also like to continue working from home a couple of days a week in some capacity. I don’t see myself ever being able to completely retire.”

Heather says… “Wade is a talented practical money manager whose passions run deep for his family and in helping others create the best outcomes in all areas of life.  The ‘unexpected’ is what I enjoy about Wade – he’s a hockey player yet a talented chef, a rugged outdoorsman yet a caring and gentle father. Whatever he sets his hand to, he gives his very best to and doesn’t settle for second best.”

Peter says…“Wade doesn’t miss much. He’s fastidious, methodical and the man to have in your corner to help you find and grow money.”

Heather Fraser

Administrative Assistant
HollisWealth, a division of Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. (iA Securities)

Heather Fraser

Heather’s characteristics: Friendly, kind, passionate, fun.

Would you believe?
Heather once thought she was going to be a nurse. It’s funny though, with raising 3 active sons, she kind of became one.

Heather’s Money Personality?
“I like to stay on budget and don’t enjoy getting off-track with unforeseen expenses. I enjoy planning and tracking our home expenditures to ensure that the things we’d like to accomplish and dream about get fulfilled.”

What’s Heather’s ‘better’?
“We chose to wait until our children were raised and educated to start some travelling, when the time and money would be a little easier. I enjoy working and appreciate taking time off to explore places we’ve never been together. My better involves travelling to Italy in 2019 for a milestone anniversary, and hopefully some more overseas travel after that.”

Wade says… “Heather is the jack of all trades that keeps our operation running smoothly. She is at her best when she has a full load on her plate. Part-time helper, part-time baker, part-time designer, and a full-time position in caring. Whether it is about us and our team or about our clients, it is in her nature to care.”

Peter says… “Heather brings the delight to our work, the colour to our world and the care to our clients. She puts the sweet into our work.”

Compliments...

I have been a client of Peter’s for more than 10 years, and have been extremely pleased with our business relationship.  He and his team exude integrity, and they model some of the best practices of first class customer service – communication, responsiveness and a sincere concern for their client’s best interests. I would recommend his firm to anyone of need of top notch financial expertise.

James E

Branch Manager

Peter Fraser managed my stepmother’s financial affairs for many years. Since my taking over Power of Attorney (POA Financial) for her, her affairs have remained under Peter’s management, so I have had an opportunity to experience the honesty, professionalism and competence Peter brings to his clients.Taking on POA  was a task with which I was totally unfamiliar and felt quite intimidated. Peter was of enormous help in guiding and advising me and I relied upon him a great deal. As a result, the results have been very favourable, I have been kept fully informed and totally trust Peter’s competence and honesty.

Alexandra

His recommendations are sound, and his kind and gentle manner is never overbearing.
