Meet our Founder - Joshua Meise

Joshua was born and raised in Prince George and loves living in Northern BC. He grew up working on his parent’s small farm where he was taught the value of hard work, and of always being honest with the people around him. Josh has carried these attributes into his financial services practice where he always puts the clients needs first and recommends the products and services that are going to best fit each persons needs and help them achieve their financial goals.

When not in the office you will find Josh in his vegetable garden, at a campsite beside a Northern BC Lake, hiking, skiing, and volunteering in the Prince George community.

Joshua's Life

Joshua was married in late 2019 and says frequently that without the support of his wife he would not have been able to build a successful financial services business. Growing up Josh was always close with his family and remains so to date and has strong family values. These family values have helped in Joshua's business as he understands the importance of long-term planning to ensure a comfortable retirement, but also to ensure loved ones are taken care of when major life events such as a disability or illness, take place unexpectedly.

Before becoming a Financial Advisor Joshua worked in the oilfields of Alberta and Saskatchewan and worked all over BC and Alberta with the railway, building new track. Josh also spent several years volunteering for a large non-profit organization in Ontario and it was during that time that he realized he wanted to spend his time helping people and got into the financial services industry. Joshua continues to volunteer his time for various organizations around Prince George to help make his community a better place to live and work.

A quote from Josh "I love what I do as I get to sit down with good people every day and help them plan for the what ifs of life and save for a comfortable retirement. Building plans of action helps relive peoples stress and live a more relaxed and comfortable life.”

Charity Work

The importance of giving back to the community.

Joshua has always thought it was important to give back to the community you work and live in. He uses his talents as a Financial Advisor to help in the community by taking on clients who are struggling financially (low income) and helps them build a budget, and a larger more in depth financial plan, to help them manage their cash flow and work their way to financial stability, all at no cost to those who are considered low income and with no obligation to transfer any of their existing assets into his care. If you know anyone that fits the above description and is looking for help getting their head above water financially, please do not hesitate to refer them to Joshua, as this is a labour of love for him.

On top of the financial charity work he does, Joshua also volunteers his time every year for the BC Thanksgiving Day Food Drive, where in 2019 he helped collect and process about 22,000 pounds of food that was donated to the Salvation Army Food bank in Prince George.

He also enjoys spending time volunteering at and donating food to the St. Vincent de Paul Society's soup kitchen, and in the past has volunteered at the BCNE, with Black Spruce Farm Tours, and several other large volunteer organizations in Canada.
