Our Company

We are a portfolio management firm servicing clients in Newfoundland and Labrador and Ontario. The firm was launched in August 2021 as a sister company to First Atlantic Financial, which was founded in 1992.

At various times Ryan, and Claire have all spent time on Bay Street learning the ins and outs of the financial world. But it is the distance from Newfoundland that often allows the ability to tune out the noise and view the world a little differently. While Claire remains near Toronto, Ryan maintains the view from "The Rock". Together they provide perspective from two distinctive parts of the country.

The First Atlantic team has decades of industry experience. It is important to us, and we believe it is important to you that we have high levels of education, expertise, and experience.
