The Paterson Wealth Management Group
Gord graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1974. Following a very successful career in the Canadian Professional Football League, he returned to raise a family and apply his attention to a second career in the financial industry as an Investment Advisor. Within a couple of years, he was managing a branch and building a solid client base. Some of these original clients are still with him after over 30 years. He has continued to provide his clients with analysis, trading and management of equities and fixed income securities, with above-average results. He especially enjoys educating both his clients and fellow IA's in the vagaries of the market.
Gord has continued to upgrade his knowledge and areas of specialty including Options, Futures, and Derivatives Supervisor, and the Partners and Directors exams. He has most recently attained the level of Canadian Investment Management. During the course of his career he has held several responsible positions reflecting the high degree of esteem with which he is held by his peers. Some of these include: Director and Resident Manager at Richardson Greenshields Calgary Branch prior to the Royal Bank merger. Member, Board of Governors, Alberta Stock Exchange 1994-1997. Chairman, Investment Dealers Association, Manitoba district, 1988 and 1989.
