Nick is a wealth management professional with over 18 years in the investment business. He has worked with a variety of investment firms both large and small- each of which were independently owned and operated. Most recently, Nick joined RBC Dominion Securities from an elite private client investment counsellor in Toronto who managed money for some of Canada’s wealthiest families. 

Originally from the Ottawa/Gatineau region, he studied at Ashbury College in Ottawa and Bishop’s University in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Having completed a Bachelor of Arts in English, Nick has also completed multiple financial industry designations including the CSC, CPH, PFP (Personal Financial Planner) as well as the CFP (Certified Financial Planner).

Nick’s wealth management approach is built firmly on a foundation of trust and clear, concise communication in order to collaborate with his clients to uncover opportunities that may apply to their situation.  He is a firm believer in a highly integrated approach to wealth planning which ensures each aspect of your financial life works in harmony. He also maintains several direct relationships with high net worth money managers who he counts as trusted business partners.

Outside of work in financial services, Nick and his wife Diana are passionate about the outdoors and music. They are avid skiers, cyclists and proud parents of two young boys (Ryder and Brody). If they are not on the slopes or out for a ride near their home located near Thornbury, Nick spends his spare time with his boys teaching them to beat on the drums or strum the guitar. Prior to joining the investment business in 1998, Nick enjoyed modest success as a musician having recorded 3 albums with his band “Clay”, multiple cross Canada tours and a music video featured on Much Music.

The Hamilton family is proud to call the Georgian Bay area home. It’s a location which is truly aligned with their interests and values. This has also been reaffirmed by the quality of people they have met in the area who they are proud to call friends.
