Girish Agrawal first came to Canada with virtually nothing. Since then, he has helped thousands of Canadians better their own financial futures. Described by many as an extremely dedicated individual, he is always willing to lend a helping hand.

Since moving to Canada, Girish has achieved several career goals, including that of Chartered Accountant (CA) and Certified Financial Planner (CFP). It is no surprise that he was nominated for Top 40 under 40 in 2008. Girish has built a successful financial practice from scratch at the Investors Group, employing a team of associates. As one of the top-performing advisors at the Investors Group, Girish devotes his time to teaching the public about saving and investing, and shares his knowledge through speaking engagements with charitable groups. He is always willing to volunteer to help others and make an impact.

Born in Mumbai, later raised in Delhi, Girish began working at age five to help contribute to the family finances, and thus learned the value of perseverance at an early age. He is an inspiration to everyone around him, a beacon who has helped shine a light on and improve the lives of numerous individuals and businesses in Calgary.
