Scott Young graduated from Simon Fraser University in 2011 with a Business and Psychology degree. He immediately launched a career in sales and logistics where he discovered a passion for serving clients. After a few years of structuring deals for fortune 100 companies, he became well versed with the financial ins and outs of providing exceptional solutions for his clients. In 2017 he made the natural transition to corporate accounting, where he became the go-to person for financial advice when operations implemented new practices.
A move from Vancouver to Calgary in 2019 enabled him to look at life from a new perspective, and he spent the next couple of years developing a passion for personal finance. He believes there’s a lack of financial education in the world, and when coupled with anxiety around the subject, even the smartest individuals can (and do) make poor financial decisions. In his quest to become more educated himself, he completed the Canadian Securities Course in 2021 and then joined HNW Financial in 2022. He is currently working towards the CFP designation on his financial planning journey with the aim to provide clients with the best advice possible.
Scott and his fiancé Alexa live in the Marda Loop area of southwest Calgary where they enjoy a small-town neighbourhood feel while still being close to shops and restaurants. They often dream of a future for themselves, as well as their family and friends, where financial freedom becomes a reality – and know that with a plan, that can become a reality one day.
