For over 25 years as a financial advisor in Toronto, Francine has helped hundreds of families in the GTA. Clients appreciate her non-judgemental approach, as well as her patience and open mindedness. Currently, she specializes in working with women transitioning into retirement. She was born in Toronto where she still lives in the Roncesvalles neighborhood. As a sole support mother of 3 children, Francine understands the challenges we can face in our lives and our need to be prepared for life’s unexpected events.
Francine is a tireless volunteer and was the recipient of the Canada 125 Medal and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her community service.
Francine worked as a financial planner in Toronto with Credential Financial Strategies and Qtrade Insurance Solutions, which provided financial and insurance advice to Alterna Savings and Credit Union members. She has been an advisor with Carte Wealth Management Inc. since 2016 where independence allows her to provide the best service and products to her clients. However, her co-operative spirit remains. As the winner of Alterna Savings and Credit Union’s first Community Social Responsibility (CSR) Idol award, she had the opportunity of traveling to the Philippines with the Canadian Co-operative Association and observed firsthand the value of people working together for their mutual benefit. As a member of the Centre for Social Innovation, this is Francine’s outlook on life and in work.
