Mike Alford

Managing Partner / Wealth Specialist

Mike has been a part of the Alford Financial team since leaving a successful career in the manufacturing industry over 20 years ago.  At that time as a young advisor with children of his own, he had a first-hand understanding of his client's needs versus their budget restrictions.  With this knowledge, he cut his teeth in the business with a focus on helping young families, much like his own, establish and protect their goals through simple insurance and investment planning.  

Over two decades later Mike stays true to his roots.  Frequently using the term "Small Account? BIG Advice!", he believes that everyone deserves the same attention and high quality advise no matter how much money they have.  Mike works with his clients to simplify the complex analytics needed to help determine their financial goals and objectives.  He firmly believes that the path to success is through proactive planning and regular review, 

A devoted husband and beaming father of two girls, Mike can usually be found, puttering around the house, at the ball diamond and curling rink or relaxing during family camping trips.

Brad began his advisory career at a large multinational insurance company in 1997. Working closely with other advisors, he developed the skills, and earned the designations that formed the basis of the knowledge and experience required for financial planning and investment management. In 2001, Brad joined Marlatt Insurance Agencies as an associate, and in 2003, He and his wife Heather purchased the business from the founder Peter Marlatt. As a financial advisor, Brad worked directly with individuals to identify their unique personal financial goals. This was done through the creation and implementation of a formalized financial plan. In addition to working with individual clients, Brad also focused his efforts on building a solid knowledge base on Group Savings including Group Pensions, RRSPs, and Deferred Profit-sharing plans. Brad created a trademarked process designed for group planning known as the Employee Care Program ™. This program was created to benefit both the employer, and employees on several fronts including ensuring compliance of The CAP guidelines for the employer, and suitable investment strategies for the employees. In 2013, Brad, and Heather agreed to sell their growing practice to Cornwall Wealth Management, and Brad continued on in the same role with the new firm until Feb. 28, 2020.

After a two-year hiatus, Brad agreed to join Alford Family Financial focusing solely on group savings, an area that he is extremely passionate about, and where he finds the work to be highly rewarding.
