I'm pleased to introduce the newest member of our team, Lisa Guo. Lisa is joining us in the role of Associate Investor Specialist in our Vancouver office, where she’ll work closely with our client service team in helping our investors build and manage their portfolios.

Lisa was born and raised in Edmonton. She graduated from the University of Alberta in 2016 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree. Lisa has a passion for financial literacy (which scored her big bonus points in the interview process!) and was part of the founding team of a financial education program for university students during her time at U of A. While at university, she also had the opportunity to study in Japan for a term, and worked part time at TD Bank. Lisa is currently pursuing the CFA designation and has passed Level II of the program.

After working as a summer student at RBC PH&N’s Edmonton office in 2016, Lisa joined the firm on a full-time basis in 2017 as a Private Client Associate. She decided to move to the west coast in October 2018 and joined Steadyhand the following month.

As we do with every new employee, we put Lisa on the hot seat with our ‘short snappers’ to get to know her a little better. One thing I learned, aside from her love of ice cream, is that she’s quick on her feet.
