Sophie’s BA in Economics from McGill, combined with her BDes in Fashion Design from Ryerson, gives her a uniquely creative appreciation for financial matters. Beginning her career at Republic Bank, she now manages the firm’s daily finances and administration, and although she is the second shortest person in the office, she should never be underestimated—her bite is way worse than her bark... just ask George!

With a BA in Economics from the University of Western Ontario, and a career that includes tenures at London-based Investors Planning Associates Ltd. and local financial institutions, he brings a wealth of experience to the management of individual and institutional portfolios. Alan is a family man, a fisherman, and an avid sportsman—particularly if that sport includes a beer or two.

She is the ultimate problem solver, continuously researching ideas and technology to ensure operational activities are efficient, and optimising methods and procedures to meet the needs of clients. After hours, her little human and crazy cats keep her just as busy.

This eager analytic with a deathly stare is usually found behind her computer screens working on new and efficient solutions to implement. With strong quantitative and analytical skills gained from her BSc (Hons) in Applied Mathematics from the University of Western Ontario, Victoria oversees Sheppard's trading activities. When she’s not riding the adrenaline high of the Trade Desk, she is giving into her vices—playing with her dogs and learning new things.
