Q&A With Brian MacInnis

What are the values that drive you?

Honesty, integrity, and empathy are the most important values in my life. I hold myself to this standard every single day. 

What is something potential clients in the investment and protection products industry deal with that you want to fix?

I’ve come across plenty of working husband and wife couples that are extremely under-insured when it comes to life insurance.  Life insurance in general is inexpensive, and a great way to protect those you love.

Which accomplishments are you most proud of?

Being awarded Firefighter of the Year in 1997 was a humbling award to receive.  More recently, I was awarded the Attitude Award in 2017 for having the best overall positive attitude in the financial firm.

What is a cause or organization that you care deeply about?

I care about and support environmental issues, children experiencing hunger and homelessness, and prefer when possible to practice socially responsible investing.
