After graduating from university in 1995, Mounir joined a bank-owned investment dealer as an Investment Advisor. Early in his career, he learned the importance of developing a deep understanding of his clients’ financial needs and objectives. He also learned the value of investing in only the highest-quality securities and managing risk to preserve capital.
As his career progressed, Mounir added four designations to his credentials: he became a Chartered Investment Manager (CIM), a Certified International Wealth Manager (CIWM), a Professional Financial Planner (PFP), and a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute (FCSI) and is licensed to trade options and futures. Mounir is also licensed to provide life, disability and accident & sickness insurance.
Mounir advises broadly diversified investors who include high-net-worth families, C-level executives, trusts, foundations and businesses. He goes beyond portfolio management, with the help of firm’s trusted in-house professionals, to provide tax, insurance and estate planning strategies that address all private wealth needs from top to bottom. All of his client relationships begin the same way - a relaxed meeting consisting of a straightforward exchange of ideas. He encourages people to openly share their personal and business circumstances, concerns, risk tolerance, hopes and goals. Mounir listens carefully to gather key insights from his meetings that inform his actions.
In 2016, Mounir joined Richardson GMP to better serve the needs of his clients with a firm that specializes in wealth management. Believing strongly in the importance of trust, integrity and an elevated code of service, Richardson GMP’s reputation for client care and heritage of high ethical standards resonated with him. More specifically, Mounir appreciates that Richardson GMP is the first wealth management firm in Canada to earn Centre for Fiduciary Excellence Certification as an Investment Advisory firm.
In addition to a very high level of service, the hallmarks of Mounir’s practice are competitive fees, transparent performance reporting, regular communication and contact, and client education – Mounir often emails his clients with personal commentary along with articles of interest to provide pertinent information.
Mounir and his wife keep busy with four active kids in North Toronto. Mounir enjoys relaxing at the family cottage, fishing, scuba diving and playing the occasional round of golf.
