Welcome to FIRE Financial

After working over 6.5 years at two of the largest banks in Canada, I realized that I needed to go independent to give unbiased advice to my clients. I am one of the few advisors in Canada who holds both insurance and mortgage licenses. At this moment, I do not hold an investment license. However, Nest Wealth and ShariaPortfolio Canada work as our portfolio managers and invest in diversified portfolios according to the client’s return objectives and risk profiles.

At FIRE Financial, we focus on pre-retirees and retirees, Muslim clients, and healthcare professionals. This allows us to build our knowledge in a niche market segment and achieve hyper-efficiency to deliver the best advice to our clients. As independent advisors, we constantly shop around for the most suitable products on behalf of our clients and engage with experienced professionals whenever there is a need for specialized advice.

I am a volunteer financial planner at the Financial Planning Association of Canada (FPAC) pro-bono initiative which offers free, unbiased financial guidance to those who are unable to hire a traditional financial advisor. I am very enthusiastic about teaching, which is why I started my part-time academic career as a Professor in the School of Accounting and Financial Services at Seneca College. I teach financial planning courses and train the next generation of financial advisors. I also follow the stock market very closely as an active investor.

I completed a fully funded thesis-based master's degree in Finance from the University of Saskatchewan and a bachelor's degree in Economics from Dhaka University. I am a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter holder, a Chartered Market Technician (CMT) charter holder, a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) professional, and hold the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Personal Financial Planner (PFP) designation.

I live in Scarborough, Ontario with my loving wife and young son and daughter. Much of my spare time is spent creating free content for YouTube channels and arranging free seminars. I love watching Formula 1 sports and Cricket.

My Journey

July 2022

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 Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Market Technician (CMT) designations in 2021/22. These designations trained me to help high-net-worth families with their financial issues.

From Winter 2016 to Spring 2022
