Ross Young

Helping my clients discover how to leave a legacy in ways that is meaningful to them is why I do what I do. I feel that making a difference and giving back are the core values that I share with my clients. I work with my clients to gain an intimate understanding of their goals and values in order to allow them to do what they love, and I love sharing in their successes.

As a Chartered Accountant and Certified Financial Planner specializing in tax, estate and philanthropic planning, the value I bring to business owners and professionals helps them navigate the complexity of their family assets. Their biggest concerns are creating, growing and protecting their legacy in ways that is meaningful to them. My certification and experience as a Family Enterprise Advisor adds depth to the solutions I bring to the unique challenges of my clients.

When I’m not engaged with my clients, I am passionate about working with the community and philanthropy. And of course, spending time with my family and friends, and the outdoors is personally rewarding.
