I am delighted to provide a comment regarding the service Laurel Armstrong has provided me over the past 11 years that I have known her.

As a Certified Financial Planner, Investment Advisor, Life Underwriter and past Banker, Laurel has set the standard for service, professionalism and forward thinking. She has consistently been able to anticipate both my financial and planning needs and has acted swiftly and diligently on my behalf. Laurel’s consistent attention and communication reflect the fact that she really seems to care deeply about “the big picture” of investment planning. Her excellent communications skills, attention to detail and obvious love of her work assist her greatly in providing top notch service in her field.

I strongly recommend Laurel to anyone desiring the very best in financial and investment planning.

I have dealt with Laurel for better than four years. She has been very helpful in helping prepare a Financial Plan and an Estate Plan for me. She is very well qualified as a Financial Executive. One thing I have found in all my years of dealing with your financial situations, you require a professional. I have found her to be very honest, straight forward and truthful. She is very easy to talk to and someone I feel very comfortable sharing not only my financial advice with but also very confidential information with. She is always available to meet on a one to one basis to go over my entire portfolio.

She takes advantage of ScotiaMcLeod professionals and advisers to present their views on various investments.

I can highly recommend Laurel as a Professional Financial Executive.

Dear Laurel:

We wanted to take this moment to thank you for all the little things you do to help make our lives easier. For going out of your way to do those little extras that aren’t necessary, but are definitely appreciated.

You have always been honest, reliable, helpful and have kept us informed about what has been happening in the financial world. There were times we would not have even known about things if not for you. You have kept us educated and left us with the comfort of knowing you are looking after our interests.

It is nice to know that if there is a need, no matter what, we can ask anything of you and you will be there to help or find someone who can.

Our portfolio has done well since we have been with you and in times of market swings you have always been there to help us keep calm in the eye of the storm. You have helped us to build a strategic portfolio that suits our needs and gives us the income we feel is necessary.

We thank you again for your honesty, for you conscientious hard work and your friendship.

Mae and Richard Winter
