Kevin Nimchonok, CFP
Senior Financial Advisor
With my decade and a half experience in the financial industry field I have gained considerable expertise in managing the financial futures of professionals, business owners, senior executives and wealthy retirees. In 1996, I started at Loring Ward Investment Counsel, a financial firm specializing on the needs of high net worth individuals. In 2002, I began the process of acquiring my own financial practice and have spent the past decade helping individuals and families achieve their financial goals under my steady guidance. I double-majored at the University of Winnipeg in chemistry and economics, and so have both a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of science degree. Sports is another passion of mind and I am an avid golfer, hockey player, and mountain biker. My athletic pursuits culminated in the past in becoming a nationally ranked tennis player and provincially ranked squash player. I am involved in numerous charities but spend most of my free time with my wife and two young sons.
