Client Testimonials

"I have had my financial assets in the hands of Paul Donato and his team for at least 20 years. Dundas Wealth Counsel team members got to know me personally, what my risk tolerance is, what my retirement plans were and now what my plans are for the next years. We talked at length about what is important to me. A personalized financial strategy was created. We all have different stories and priorities and it was important to me that it not be a cookbook approach. Communications are frequent and I know if I have questions I can reach out and will get the information I need. Most recently with the unpredictable state of the world’s economy I feel that Paul is on top of the issues and will guide me through the years. I trust him and his team members. I would not hesitate recommending Dundas Wealth Counsel to potential clients."

I have been a client of Paul Donato for 12 years and I only wish I had been introduced to him sooner. I am a senior which makes my portfolio very important to maintain my life style. Over the years and through the 2008 market setback Paul always gave me confidence in my portfolio. And, he was right! What sets Paul apart and above is he “LISTENS” .

Jen and I have worked with Paul since we started investing and he got started as an advisor. Paul has always offered honest, straight forward advice and a solid foundation with a value based approach to investing. We have developed a long lasting business relationship as well as a solid friendship over the years that has provided great comfort even in the challenging times of market volatility.

I have known Paul Donato for around 25 years. He is an astute businessman with a great understanding of market forces and trends and how money should be invested, Ever since I put my portfolio in his hands I have gained a lot of trust in his expertise and advice and am really "hands free", comfortable that my money is in good hands and growth objectives are being met. My family have also put their finances in Paul's very capable hands. Paul is a good man, a solid family man and a man who I have enjoyed working with and will continue to work with way into the future.
