My name is Serguei Totrov. I’m a Mortgage Broker and Financial Advisor. I came to Canada in the beginning of 1997 and almost immediately decided to work in financial industry, because back in Russia my education background was in Economics and Finance. In 1984 I graduated from Moscow University of Management with a concentration in “Organization of Direction of Production”.
From 1997 through to 2000 I worked with “Clarica” insurance company. I decided that working for just one company is not right, because no single company can offer the best product in every sector, at the end of year 2000 I began to work as an independent Financial Consultant. This is when I began to work with my first help, Lana. I believe that our office came into existence when I was no longer working by myself.
Therefore, our company “Financial Services – Serguei Totrov” was established in December of 2000 and offers services in different financial fields. We are licensed to create contracts with insurance, investment companies, banks and financial institutions.
I have completed a three-year course “Certified Financial Planner”, main purpose of which is to provide a full picture of financial planning for a family: all types and variations of insurance, investments, pension planning, government pension plans, taxation and different options to save money for children’s education, as well as many other topics. Of course I continue my education and increase my qualification, to be able to assist you in making right decision in different financial situations.
Currently, apart from me, our office employs 12 people.
