Independent Financial Advisor

Don Carey

Hi, I'm Don Carey

independent Financial Advisor

I help hardworking Canadians arrive at a financial perspective that makes them feel clear, empowered and confident in their financial decisions. 

I care about my clients. I know it can feel intimidating, stressful or overwhelming to create a financial strategy for yourself or your family. There’s a lot of advice out there and it can be difficult to know who to trust with something as personal as your finances. 

I’ve built my career on 30+ years of experience, by serving families right here in Sarnia and throughout Ontario.  As a reputable and trusted independent financial advisor, I offer solutions to help you achieve your financial goals and bring clarity to your financial situation. 

My clients predominantly find me through referrals and I have a long history of working with multiple generations. I support grandparents who are working to sustain their income, empty nesters who want to create financial strategies for retirement and young professionals and families looking to save and plan for their next financial goals. 

I have a vested interest in your future and your financial success.  I can help.


Built on Trust

Secure Your Future

My family, neighbours and community are very important to me and building strong and lasting relationships with my clients sets me apart from other financial advisors. My wife and I raised our three boys right here in Sarnia and we are active members of the community and enjoy the great outdoors. 

Being independent allows me to operate in the best interests of my clients and I’ve structured and built my business on presenting trustworthy, valuable and profitable solutions for my clients.

We were introduced to Don Carey through a mutual friend who highly recommended Don's financial services. Apart from the fact that Don has done excellent work for us, being very conscientious and sensitive to our reservations with investing hard-earned money. He also has proved to be trustworthy and personable. Now we recommend Don to others without qualms..

When I retired in 1999 I found myself in need of a Financial Advisor as I had no idea what would be the best path to invest the monies I received on retirement. A very dear and valued friend gave me the name of her Financial Advisor, Donald Carey. A meeting was set up, and from that very first meeting I understood why my dear friend believed in him. Among Don's many attributes he is a VERY HARD WORKER - works for his clients above all else. His clients come first, meaning nothing is too much trouble where they are concerned.

Don Carey has been my Investment Advisor for over 20 years. He came highly recommended by a friend who dealt with Don. I was with another investment company at the time but wasn't happy with their lack of personal service. I'm glad I took my friend’s advice. Don's guidance, professionalism and personal service have earned my respect over the years. I'm now retired and can honestly say that I am very comfortable knowing that my investments are well looked after.

“According to a March 10, 2020 report from the Canadian non-profit CIRANO Institute, an econometric analysis of the data gleaned from a major, original Canadian survey carried out in 2009–2010 showed that a financial advisor added significant value to a household’s financial assets relative to a comparable household having no financial advisor.
In the same report, from the Investment Funds Institute of Canada highlights that, on average, investors who work with financial advisors have nearly three times the net worth and four times the investable assets of those who do not. This observation holds across all age groups and income levels.
Contrarily, it has been found that the loss of a financial advisor between 2010 and 2014 was costly: households that retained their advisor saw the value of their assets increase by 16.4%, versus only 1.7% for the assets of households that abandoned their advisor during this period.”
