Financial Planning

Michael Arbetov, CFP, FMA, MCS

I , Michael Arbetov, am committed to serve all my clients and to help them realize their goals to become wealthy or financially stable. To help my clients (individuals and corporations) to reach their financial goals I provide them with services from most of Canadian Financial Institutions. As a financial and insurance professional I work for you, not for financial companies. I hold the license of a Professional Designation Certified Financial Planner (CFP) since 2003 and that of Designation Financial Management Advisor (FMA) since 2004 (Professional who gained the knowledge and skills required to counsel high net-worth and sophisticated clients on complex wealth management issues beyond the scope of basic financial planning).
CFP Professional in Good Standing. (Please use BC – British Columbia province for the search) 

I have memberships with Certified Financial Planners Association. I am also an active member of Russian and Ukrainian communities in Great Vancouver. I contribute with articles on different issues in Russian and Ukrainian newspapers and magazines in Canada and abroad. I completed courses at Canadian Securities Institute as a Financial Manager Advisor (2004, # 2408) and at British Columbia Institute of Technology (Financial Management, 2003).

I also have Level 2 Financial and Insurance Advisors with CAIFA (9 months long course).

I have graduated from the State Academy of Management (Business and Finance, Ukraine, 1994).

I possess a Master’s Degree in Computer Sciences and Mathematics (Ukraine, 1983). Each year I get over 40 hours of credits participating in financial seminars, forums, and summits with investment and insurance companies. It helps me to improve my knowledge and better serve my clients.

I strongly believe that my highest priority is the best service for my clients. I have been married for over 30 (thirty) years, have 2 lovely children, and the best wife in the entire world.
