Investment Planning Advisor
BA, CFP® and RRC®
“I was inspired to become a financial planner when faced with the limitations of the traditional broker’s model in achieving a client’s financial well-being. I wanted to be a part of something different, providing custom financial strategies that help each client successfully achieve their goals.”

Perspective on Working with Dentists
Shan creates a holistic plan for his clients that improves their peace of mind by increasing and securing their net worth. “Finance is one of the biggest sources of stress even for the wealthy who live well within their means. It is important to help people be at ease with a financial strategy given the uncertainty in the world.”
“Transparency, honesty and offering sound insights while providing tailored guidance is the roadmap to get my clients where they want to be.”
Shan enjoys working at CDSPI Advisory Services Inc. and has respect for the entire team as he believes that the not-for-profit model of CDSPI attracts people with similar qualities and views on life. CDSPI is a community-oriented organization that is designed to serve the community of dentists. “Dentistry is a multifaceted skill set and dentists are not just professionals like lawyers or financial advisors, they are also technicians and business owners. It is a unique combination of trade and profession and I enjoy collaborating with dentists on their complex financial goals.”

Financial wellness is a sense of well-being that comes from knowing your financial trajectory and having the confidence to navigate changing financial markets, tax legislation, and corporate taxation for your financial situation, because you have the information you need to make the right decisions.
“My advice to every dentist, and really everyone, is to have a financial plan and understand the source of your money and where it goes. It is important to make your decisions on how you want to use your money with intention. Money and values are linked and having an awareness of what you are doing with your money is critical to making sure it is driving your personal values.”
Shan is an accomplished triathlete and marathon runner. He is an avid traveller who has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, driven the Ho Chi Minh Highway on a motorcycle, hiked the Great Wall of China, and cycled from Bruges to Amsterdam.
