About Greg Rieben

The financial markets have been my passion ever since I began investing 15 years ago while studying finance at the University of Alberta.

 

I've traded and invested through the tech bubble in 2000 and the financial crisis in 2009. These were some of the most volatile and wealth destroying markets in the last few decades. It was during these difficult times that I learned critically important lessons that have shaped my investment philosophy and knowledge to where it is today. I want to pass along this knowledge and help others become better investors.

 

I believe that all individuals deserve personalized service as well as quality information and education from an experienced professional, regardless of account size or net worth.
