Craig MacKenzie - Intrepid Financial Solutions Inc. - Mississauga ON

I understand your goals and dreams are as individual as you are.

Whether you’re starting a new family, preparing for retirement, or running a business, I will work with you or your business to build the financial security plan that best fits your needs.

I will work with you to create a customized plan that helps you manage risk and brings your goals within reach through an integrated planning process.

I came into this industry to make a difference for families in need. I often saw families that had suffered undue hardship because of a lack of financial planning. I believe I can help make a positive difference in the lives of my clients by applying what I know and continuing to research new ways to build and develop financial and personal security.
