Practice: Assante Wealth Management
Firm: Assante Wealth Management
Location: Calgary, AB

Before entering wealth management, Jim Durnin spent 14 years in the computer industry, designing networks and doing project management. It wasn’t until 1994 that he decided to make a career change to follow his passion for investing after receiving a job offer from his own financial advisor.

“I decided, with my wife’s support, to resign from the computer industry and start practicing professionally what I loved to do as a hobby since I was a teenager,” Durnin says. “I became his partner in 1998 and then started my own practice in late 2002.”

Now Durnin has hit the 25-year mark in the financial industry and recently saw his AUM surpass $221 million. He’s currently in the process of building out a new office space to expand his team’s capabilities. “Superior client service has been a primary goal of mine since I started the practice,” he says. “This expansion will set the stage for our continued evolution.”
