Alex is one of the co-founders of Aspira Wealth and takes the lead role in developing and managing our in-house investment strategies. Alex brings to Aspira his curiosity, resilience, and focus on continuous improvement. Growing up without a lot has fueled Alex’s desire to help our clients protect and compound their hard-earned wealth. He leverages his passion for mathematics, design, and psychology to create effective investment solutions.
During the past 22 years, Alex has acquired a truly global experience in investments and banking, by serving clients in Canada, United States, Western Europe, and in his native country Moldova. Before he joined Raymond James (Canada) in 2013, Alex worked for 6 years for a small, top performing, hedge fund from Minnesota, United States.
During family time, you might find Alex, his wife, Dorina, and their daughters exploring Vancouver Island, as well as engaging with the community. More recently, they launched a farm stand to share home-made crafts & sourdough bread with the local community and to donate most of the proceeds to various charities.
During his alone time, Alex is renovating his house, making wildlife photography, creating artwork, engaging in endurance exercises, and reading (...a lot!). Alex shares his insights in his newsletter “Investment Marathon” and displays artwork of his family at Vozian Art gallery.
Alex is fluent in three languages – English, Romanian, and Russian. He has lived in Moldova, Quebec, and Minnesota, before finally settling in British Columbia.
Alex considers himself a student of life, supplemented by the most rigorous certification program for investment professionals – Chartered Financial Analyst.
No credential is as widely regarded in the global financial industry for its rigorous focus on current investment knowledge, analytical skill, and ethical standards as the Chartered Financial Analyst designation. A charterholder not only has the technical knowledge to make investment decisions but also adopts and is held to the highest ethical standards. A comprehensive, global view and up-to-date practical skills give these investment professionals the tools and deep understanding necessary to effectively analyze the risks and rewards of a variety of investment types, enabling them to address a client’s specific investment needs.
