History of Our Financial Centres
We have many local offices, with our first dating back many years. Do you remember Eaton's, the catalogue and department store? Our story begins there when we were originally part of the Eaton’s business.
In 1971, the Western Canada Calgary Eaton’s location was opened and managed by Arnold Lautenslager. Arnold’s client practice continues to grow and is well managed today by Arnold’s son, Richard Lautenslager in Calgary.
The Calgary location opened in May, 2000 under the Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network banner.
Our Edmonton location opened in May, 2000.
