Our Clients

We also serve a select number of institutions as clients.

Our Leadership

The ethos of a business comes from the top; in the case of Nour Private Wealth, the firm’s philosophy mimics that of its founder: Elie Nour. A graduate from McGill University with a Bachelor of Arts degree Majoring in Economics, and with two Minors in Management and Hispanic Studies, his passion for the investment world led him into the wealth management industry in 2005 with Berkshire Securities. After Manulife Securities acquired Berkshire in 2007, he kept on growing his practice and enhancing his reputation as an advisor which attracted several advisors wanting to learn from his methods.

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 which has led him to emerge as the second top producer for Manulife in Canada in 2009 and 2010, before taking top spot in 2011 and 2012.

As his team grew, he made the decision 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 business 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, 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 Wealth Professional Top 50 Advisors' poll since 2014, a poll that highlights the wealth management industry’s premier talent. He was also nominated for the Young Gun of the Year Award in 2016 and for the Advisor of the Year Award in 2017 and 2018 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.
