Erik Bregar has joined Chippingham Financial Group as an investment advisor, according to the Toronto-based investment dealer.

Bregar is an eight-year veteran of the foreign exchange industry who will be responsible for expanding the firm’s currency and commodity presence, particularly amongst active traders, high net-worth individuals and corporate treasurers.

“We’re happy to have Erik join us during a time of tremendous growth at Chippingham,” says Gary Ng, chairman and CEO. “He brings strong experience in trading, sales, and business development; and embodies our focus of putting clients first. With the explosion of volatility hitting the currency and commodity markets, Erik is a key addition that will help our clients generate returns and manage risk.”

Bregar’s past experience includes time spent as an associate with ScotiaMcLeod Inc. and head of forex trading for Questrade Inc., both based in Toronto. He is licensed to provide execution and advisory services in forex, futures, options and securities.

“I’m excited to now be in a position where I can meet the demand of clients asking for full-service advisory,” says Bregar. “I’m also fortunate to join a firm with unprecedented access to markets and a business model that supports the delivery of independent, unbiased advice.”
