Anthony Ciccone | B.Comm, CHFC | President

Anthony Ciccone is a Chartered Financial Consultant (CHFC), business advisor and successful entrepreneur who since 1985 has honed his craft to become a leading estate and financial planning expert. His advice and expertise have been sought throughout Canada by a very diversified client base, which is primarily made up of well-established family-owned businesses and middle, upper income, and high net worth individuals.

Anthony started his career in 1985 with Imperial Life Financial and progressed through the years with an associate stint at Manulife Financial before venturing out to form his own financial services firm in 1990. In 2003, Anthony joined forces with long time friend and mentor Gerry McKay, to create their own financial services company, Ciccone McKay Financial Group. Building upon the success and growth of Ciccone McKay, and realizing a need existed within the industry, Anthony expanded his company in 2010 to include a subsidiary firm specializing in employee benefits, the Immix Group. Most recently, Anthony has expanded his group of companies to include Ciccone McKay Private Wealth, a firm dedicated to institutional calibre investment management.

This business model has proven to be the perfect fit for Anthony and his clients. The departmentalized yet collaborative structure at the Ciccone McKay Group of Companies has given Anthony the opportunity to focus on his specialized practice of estate and succession planning, as well as providing a valuable resource to his clients by making available qualified in-house technical personnel and advisory partners such as tax accountants, tax lawyers and other private investment and risk management experts.

A lifelong resident of Vancouver and an active member of the Italian community, Anthony and his team are great believers in giving back. He was the founder and chairman of the Sergio Lovison Foundation, a charity foundation that donates university scholarships to local high school kids. In addition to this work, Anthony served for many years as a board member of the Michael Cuccione Foundation, an organization that is dedicated to raising funds for Childhood Cancer Research, and he remains an enthusiastic supporter. An avid golfer, Anthony is a member of Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club.
