Investment Advisor, Manulife Securities Incorporated‚Äč

Life Insurance Advisor, Manulife Securities Insurance Inc.

Professional Profile:

For twenty years I worked on the institutional side of the business. As a pension consultant I worked with billions of dollars of pension assets. As a retail structured product specialist, I initiated and managed billions of dollars of retail product sold through the investment dealers to retail consumers like you. Never did I see the direct benefit of my work with an end consumer. Never saw a pension plan member, never saw in individual investor. It was all academic. The switch to becoming a retail Investment Advisor allowed me to use my skills to work directly with individuals.  In so doing, I now have a direct and meaningful relationship with individuals but more importantly I can see the tangible result of my work and experience and contribute to their success. That is the reward for me.

Personal Profile:

We live a busy life.  My two passions are sailing and flying.  Other keen interests are fishing, tennis, squash and work.  I love what I do.  In addition, both Zoe and I are great supporters of both TIFF and the Bloor Hot Docs Theatre.

Professional Profile:

Educated as a Mechanical Engineer and working as a physics teacher in the early part of my career, I developed the necessary discipline and people skills required to bring an extremely high level of service to our client base.  Driven by a need for new challenges and the desire to keep learning, I shifted careers to the financial industry in 2006.  Scott and I combined practices in 2012 (the same year we were married).

Personal Profile:

I like to be outdoors and active. Some of my favourite activities include running, tennis, and skiing. My other passion is food: eating, cooking and reading recipes. Yum!  I enjoy travelling, especially back to my beautiful home town of Vancouver to visit family and friends.

I joined the team in April of 2015. With five years’ experience as a Financial Services Representative in the Retail & Business banking division of one of Canada's big six chartered banks, I’ve developed the necessary administrative and client servicing skills to assist our clients with their financial questions. I enjoy using my knowledge of basic banking products, lending, insurance and investing to help our clients attain their financial goals.

I like to spend time learning and discovering new things. I’m almost always involved in some course or form of study. Most recently I’ve taken classes in Woodcarving & Sculpture, Hip Hop Dance and Introduction to Guitar.

Alexander Hutchison

Life Insurance Advisor, Manulife Securities Insurance Inc. 

Professional Life:After finishing up at McGill and wrapping up my football career I worked as a proprietary trader for a small hedge fund in Montreal. I needed a change of pace, so I followed in the footsteps of other great McGillians like Mike Babcock and moved to Toronto. Before coming to Blair + Adrian Wealth Advisors I worked as a business development and marketing associate with one of the largest brokers in the country.

Personal Profile:

I am no longer a new comer to Toronto, but I still enjoy exploring the city and finding interesting restaurants and bars around the city. I am a horrible squash player and a worse golfer but I still give both the old college try, maybe one day I’ll beat Scott at either. In my down time I like to read sales books or high fantasy novels.
