His ability to understand our unique financial situation coupled with the need to provide adequately for our family members in the future has resulted in excellent advice from which our analysis has evolved into a solid financial plan. We have never felt rushed or pushed into a decision but have respected his analysis of our financial position and have agreed with his plans for our future financial health. His calm quiet personality provides him the ability to discuss in a straightforward manner often complex topics related to financial planning, estate planning, investment planning and insurance planning.

“I have dealt with Secura for a number of years including the hand over to Ray Calver to manage my affairs. I am not someone who likes to spend a great deal of time on my financial situation. I guess I am too involved in my work...which I enjoy immensely. In Ray I deal with someone who I trust totally, whose engagement with me reflects my needs and preferences and who has helped enormously in establishing an appropriate path for my financial present and future. He has been most accommodating in meeting my needs and in anticipating future needs with appropriate products and services. He has coordinated most effectively with my network when needed, including my accountant over some tax issues. He has been a delight to deal with, both professionally and personally. I wholeheartedly recommend him." Alan Middleton — Schulich School of Business, York University
“Working with Jeff Hancock has helped us to feel much more comfortable with our investments and finances. Jeff has taken the time to understand what is important to us and helped us develop a plan so we know how much we can comfortably spend, so we can enjoy doing what we want and know that we should always be ok. Jeff is always available to review our plans and investments with us, but if we ever have a worry or concern Jeff is there to talk with us and we always feel much better after our meetings. He does an excellent job of explaining things in a simple and direct way that relates to our situation. We are always happy to recommend Jeff to our family and friends without hesitation.” Wayne and Fran Green — retired and enjoying life

A comment sent by a client..... "Many thanks for your time yesterday. I feel that I have a better understanding of what the big picture looks like and will see where we are a year from now. Also, last night as I was looking ahead to the end of the week, it dawned on me that it was exactly 6 years ago on Tuesday, January 19 (2010) that we met at Starbucks in Brockville where I left with you my 4 black binders of investment history. You took those binders, reviewed them and then advised me of your recommendations. In my opinion, it was one of the best decisions I have made in my life to have switched to you as my financial adviser. My dear dad always SPOKE VERY HIGHLY of you and your business sense. Dad was a very wise and insightful man. I'm extremely thankful that I listened to him and to 'my gut' turning to you to handle my investments. Thank you, thank you, thank you." Kathy Caldwell — retired teacher (and second generation client
“Jeff Hancock of Secura Financial Group has been our financial advisor for the past 20 years, from the time that Cathy and I first opened our business in 1996. This past spring we sold our interest in the business and retired, and Jeff tells us we have been his first "wire-to-wire" clients. 20 years ago we were not financially savvy. From the outset, Jeff worked diligently with us to discover our long term plans and goals and our needs. I remember him initially using an involved questionnaire as a tool to assess our risk-tolerance, but more important to Jeff was the time he spent talking with us, assessing our financial position, our needs and our attitudes. He then carefully and very patiently walked us through our investment options, based on our financial means of the day. Jeff offered sound advice, but in all honesty, we never felt pressured to "sign up" for anything; he simply laid out what he felt were our best options and allowed us to decide. Over the years, we met with Jeff sometimes once but more often twice yearly. Our financial situation changed markedly over those years, and Jeff continued to work carefully and diligently with us to craft an insurance and investment portfolio tailored to our individual situation. Now that we have retired, we continue to meet twice annually, for several hours, as Jeff explains our situation of the day, and our financial options. In my opinion, Jeff's strength lies not only in his knowledge of, and access to, various financial strategies and instruments, but also in his very individual, personal approach to financial planning. Working with him has made our retirement at a relatively early age possible and comfortable. I would strongly recommend him to any of my friends.” Jay & Cathy Black — Bayridge Animal Hospital - Retired
When making lifetime decisions in regards to ones investment portfolio, insurance, and future estate plans, it is imperative to rely on someone who possesses integrity, honesty, and knowledge; to guide them through the maze of possibilities. We have found just such a person in Ray Calver, and Secura. We feel very comfortable with his level of expertise in the financial field, and his integrity is impeccable. He is a true professional. The Office back-up team are some of the friendliest, and most helpful people I have encountered, and always seem to be right there with him, on top of every situation. I have no hesitancy to recommend him and his services to anyone requiring them.H. F. Nevers — Brockville, ON
