Investment Advisor and Principal
Gilman Deters Private Wealth – Harbourfront Wealth Management
With more than 28 years of experience as a financial advisor, Nicole Deters has the highest standards for client care and offers a holistic approach to wealth management. Embodying the values of hard work, honesty and professionalism, Deters attributes her success throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to her ability to pivot and willingness to embrace technology. “That has allowed me to maintain my client relationships and business dealings without interruption,” she says.
Deters began her career in 1992 as an executive assistant to a senior wealth manager for the first independent mutual fund distributor in Canada. In 1998, she completed the Canadian Securities Course and earned a Professional Financial Planning designation through the Canadian Securities Institute in 2003. In 2005, she established an income tax preparation company, Valley Tax Services, that is exclusive to wealth clients. She has been nominated multiple times for Female Trailblazer of the Year at the Wealth Professional Awards and was recently featured in The Top 100 Magazine. Deters also supports several charities, including the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society.
When asked how the wealth management industry can empower and support more women in their careers, Deters says, “The simple act of sharing of successes, experiences and challenges can propel others to greater heights.”
