About Charles Street Financial Inc.

Charles Street Financial is an Atlantic Canadian based financial services company offering financial advice and wealth management strategies to families and businesses.

We look at each of our clients individually and customize their financial plan according to their financial goals and objectives.

You need a specialized plan based on your unique circumstances. We are all individuals, so your plan should be as original as you are. We work with you to make sure each dynamic of your financial security plan is covered, whether it's estate planning, taxes, portfolio management or establishing a legacy.

Helping our clients achieve what they want for their families is our focus. Perhaps it's time to change your notions of what you can talk about with a Financial Advisor.  At Charles Street, we can help you navigate tough family issues that may affect everything from your cash flow and investment choices to your estate plan. 40% of our families use our budget review process to help them stop going behind each month and take control of the resources needed to implement a financial plan.

In times of volatility, a discussion about the market can give you confidence you're making sound financial decisions, not emotional ones.  As a Charles Street client, you can speak with an experienced advisor who will listen to your needs and goals, and will offer strategies in language that you understand.  So come talk to our team, and we'll help you get started on the road to financial independence.
