VFS Advisors provide expert, unbiased advice on your individual insurance and wealth management needs. Unlike other providers who are focused on selling you something, with a VFS broker your interests come first. 

It is this singular focus on customer needs that sets a VFS Advisors apart from all other options.

After having operated a successful financial services company since 2011, father and son team Mike and Brett decided to establish Volpe Financial Solutions in Oakville Ontario in 2017. They recognized an opportunity in the marketplace to offer optimal insurance and investment advice to all clients.

Opening an independent brokerage allowed them the freedom to provide a wide array of products and services without the handcuffs of a large corporation. Without these restrictions, Volpe Financial Solutions is free to shop any and all vendors in the pursuit of developing the optimal combination of products for your specific needs.
