Personal FIRE Journey
I started our YouTube channel and Facebook weekly educational webinar series where we provide general advice on financial planning, investment, tax, insurance, mortgages, etc.
I also started my FIRE journey by becoming a full-time day trader. I trade stocks, options, CFDs, crypto, etc. to achieve my financial independence.
To deliver unbiased advice to my clients, I launched FIRE Financial Inc. FIRE Financial has partnered with Nest Wealth and Sharia Portfolio Canada for investment solutions, Citadel Mortgages for mortgage products, and BrokerUnion Insurance for insurance solutions.
I also joined the Financial Planning Association of Canada (FPAC) which is the only association in Canada where all advisors have taken the “Fiduciary” oath to work in the best interest of their clients.
The year-long learning
I spend a busy long year earning the Certified Financial Planning (CFP) and the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designations and passing all 3 levels of the Chartered Market Technician (CMT) program in 2021/22. These designations trained me to help high-net-worth families with their financial issues.
During this time I got heavily motivated by fiduciary financial planning which ultimately inspired me to be an independent financial planner.
From Winter 2016 to Spring 2022
I gained over 3 years of practical experience at the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) as a Financial Advisor. Then I moved to the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) as an Investment Consultant and spend another 3 years.
Beginning of the journey
I finished my academic studies by earning a thesis-based Master’s in Finance from the University of Saskatchewan. At the same time, I finished all three levels of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program. Before that, I completed my undergraduate from the University of Dhaka in Economics.
