Hi, I'm Brandon!


I feel like it was just yesterday that I was in your exact same position. A complete noobie to the scary world of the stock market. I know the exact fears and hesitations you're likely having because I was in those shoes too.

In 2019, I decided to create The Investing Academy, where I can help Canadians realize that investing in the stock market isn't nearly as intimidating as you think! 

In 2013, I officially began my industry studies. Over the years I have completed the (CSC) Canadian Securities Course, (CPH) Conduct & Practices Handbook Course, 90-day Investment Advisor Training Program, attended the Manulife Professional Development Workshop in Oakville, ON, the (WME) Wealth Management Essentials, became a fully licensed Investment Advisor at the age of 20, and of course, attended countless industry seminars, conferences & events to help further my learning.

I spent 4 years working in the field at my father's investment firm where I helped build and manage multi-million dollar portfolios.

I've also built a leading YouTube channel in the Canadian investing market which has grown to over 150,000+ subscribers. 

I'll be teaching you everything you need to know.
