Meet the Team

Financial independence is not something that just happens,
you have to create it.

However, unless you’re trained in finance, creating financial independence can be a difficult and an ultimately unsuccessful endeavor. A financial advisor with the proper training and credentials can be the lighthouse that you follow on your journey of creating and preserving your wealth. At Integral Financial Services Inc. the advisors have decades of experience. They have witnessed rampant inflation with 20 percent interest rates, and both bull and bear markets. This training allows them to advise you on how to reach your goals under any market conditions.

We also understand that each client is unique, and has a set of personal goals that they need to achieve to have financial peace of mind.

This is why our advisors are certified to offer you services ranging from living benefits, life insurance, employee benefits, estate and retirement planning, and debt protection. We can help you secure your and your loved one’s futures, whether that means protecting your business, planning for your children’s education, or investing and preserving your capital.  In the event of an unplanned circumstance, we can get you the personal and business protection that you need, whether you’re safeguarding against disability, critical illness, death, a fluctuating and unpredictable market, or a combination of several.
