Welcome to Bellwether Family Wealth | Nova Scotia

About us

At Bellwether Family Wealth | Nova Scotia, we put ourselves at the centre of your financial affairs so that we can see the complete picture and ensure the advice and guidance you receive is in your best interest. We start by taking an in-depth look at every aspect of your financial life, and then we work with you to create a comprehensive plan that sets you on the best course to achieve your goals and dreams.

Traditionally, most people deal with different professionals for their investment, insurance, tax and estate planning needs. But doing so is not only time-consuming, it's ineffective. Each professional you deal with will only have one piece of the puzzle. You may end up receiving conflicting opinions, or worse, advice in one area that may negatively impact another. When you work with Bellwether, you get a holistic approach that focuses on both the big picture and the details to protect your family tree.
