Yvanne Gagnon was in her early twenties when she first invested in the stock market and her late twenties when she bought her first house. Looking back on more than 25 years of investing experience, Yvanne believes that a mindset for long-term growth and faith in the future had the greatest impact on her achievements. By advancing her career, being consistent with her money management and investing her savings, she improved her financial situation, averaging an annual rate of return over 20% from a net worth perspective. Later on, her financial resources enabled her to actively pursue advanced investment vehicles, such as private lending, business development and stock trading.
In addition to investing, her interests are mountain hiking, jewelry art, nature, music, healthy living, active vacations, gorgeous scenery, learning something new, the performing arts and quiet time. Yvanne moved to Calgary, Canada, in 2012 in part for its proximity to the Canadian Rockies—a hiker’s paradise! Before coming to Calgary she lived in the Ottawa region, Edmonton, Winnipeg, NovaScotia, and Sept-Iles—a small town on the Gulf of the Saint-Lawrence where she was born.
