To pursue his interest in personal finance, Mohamed joined Investors Group in 2002 as a Financial Consultant. In his first year he was named Investors Group Runner-up Rookie; he won the firm’s Pillar Awards for three consecutive years, made the President’s Elite in 2012, and was invited to join the President’s Club in 2013.
