He joined BMO Nesbitt Burns in 1994 in Charlottetown PEI, then in 2004 moved to Halifax as Atlantic Divisional Manager. With a gift for demystifying the world of investing and making it enjoyable for people, George and his team take great pride in helping individuals - entrepreneurs in particular - to manage their wealth, enrich their lives and make advantageous connections.

In August 2009, George partnered with a fellow senior advisor to assist in his colleague's retirement and thereby began working with Linda MacDonald and Steven Clarke. He earned his Portfolio Manager designation in 2011.

George created The Fisher Group in 2009 and joined Richardson GMP in 2016 to offer his clients a better, more nimble wealth platform. At Richardson GMP, he has greater objectivity and scope to make the best investment choices for each client's unique needs. Richardson GMP is an independent firm that has grown through the loyalty of its long-standing advisors and a culture that sparks strong engagement.

The Fisher Group sets itself apart by creating Financial Vision documents that outline what's important in people's lives and what they want to accomplish in the future that will require time, planning and money. The team's investment approach is conservative, placing an absolute priority on preserving capital. In addition to serving the needs of individuals, George also has a strong focus on assisting busy entrepreneurs to maximize their holdings so they can focus on growing their business and plan for when they are out of the business. Tax minimization is his specialty.

George has a strong history of community involvement and is an Honorary Trustee of the Board of the QE II Foundation. He proudly founded the Prince Edward Island Marathon, which has grown to be an important annual community event, and he has successfully completed several marathons himself. George enjoys playing a round of golf and spending time with his two grown boys and two grandchildren.
