Due to his disciplined and conservative approach to investing, Elie delivered the right downside protection strategies that helped protect his clients’ retirement assets during the crisis of 2008-2009. His successful management style has led him to emerge as Manulife’s second top producer across Canada in 2009 and 2010, before taking the top spot in 2011 and 2012.
As his team grew, he decided in 2013 to move to Ontario and create Nour Private Wealth (NPW). In Ontario, NPW kept expanding its business while still maintaining a client base in Quebec. The company has gone from strength-to-strength servicing clients in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, as well as Ontario and Quebec.
In 2015, Nour Private Wealth won the New Practice of the Year Award at the Wealth Professional Awards in Toronto. Judges selected the winner on the following criteria: business conversions rates, repeat and referral business strategy, the success of the strategy, growth strategy, advertising, training, volume, and customer satisfaction.
On an individual level, Elie, a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®), has been a mainstay in the Financial Professional Top 50 Advisors’ poll since 2014, a poll that highlights the financial management industry’s premier talent. He was also nominated and was one of the finalists for the Young Gun of the Year Award in 2016, and a finalist for the Advisor of the Year Award for 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 by the Wealth Professional.
Elie is a member of the Forbes Finance Council and serves on the board of the Advisory Council for the Faculty of Music for the University of Toronto.
