Kenneth Drabble, FCSI, CIM

Senior Financial Planning Advisor

As a Senior Financial Planning Advisor at Assante Capital Management Ltd. and lead advisor of his own practice, Kenneth constantly monitors the financial markets.  This fulfills three objectives: (i) to identify market trends which can be taken advantage of on behalf of clients (ii) to monitor the short-and long-term performance of current financial vehicles, and (iii) to search for new financial vehicles that will be beneficial to clients. 

Kenneth's experience covers both Europe and North America.  His early career in the financial services industry began in the U.K.  He moved to Canada in 1980 and attained the position of Vice-President of Investment and Trust Services for Guaranty Trust Company of Canada.  Subsequently, he temporarily transferred to Nassau, Bahamas, where he managed Coutts and Company, providing investment and trust services to an international clientele.

Kenneth has provided leadership to The Drabble Private Client Group since 1994.  The practice uses a structured approach when advising clients on short-term and long-term planning, described more fully in "Our Process".  An initial meeting with the client determines needs and financial goals.  This results in a customized client Wealth Management Plan; it is this plan that shapes the services and solutions that are proposed.  Kenneth meets regularly with clients to review their plan, risk tolerance, portfolio, and life changes to determine - with the client - whether enhancements should be made, and if so, what those enhancement should be. This Plan is a cornerstone of the Drabble Private Client Group's 'trusted advisor' role.

He is actively involved in community activities.  As a member of the Toronto Netralya Lions Club, he emphasizes supporting treatment for blindness in Canada and India.  As well, he is a frequent presenter of motivational talks to Assante and other companies.

Kenneth is an amateur violinist and a devotee of Mozart (whose music he believes is the "Voice of God").  Invoking his English heritage, he is a keen follower of soccer, particularly the English Premier League, where he enthusiastically cheers on his favourite team during the football season.
