Founding Partner, Estate Multipliers
Christine has been helping individuals and families in the Golden Horseshoe area with protecting and growing their assets for over a decade. Started selling life insurance and mutual funds in 2002, and qualified as a Certified Financial Planner [CFP] in 2010, she specializes in leading other professionals and business owners from visualization to implementation of their personal financial goals with written plans and a healthy dose of realistic optimism.
She has an Honours Psychology degree from Western University (1989), a law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School (1992) , and she is currently working on her Certified Executor Advisor [CEA] designation. Christine believes that along with a sound business practice and strong moral code, the key to her success has been an understanding of her clients' priorities and goals that could only come from developing a relationship with each individual and truly listening when they speak. This is how she continues to help provide the outcomes they desire for their income, their families and their peace of mind.

Estate Multipliers is focused exclusively on what is most important to you:
your family, your work, your health and your retirement. Together we can create the life you've always envisioned.
REALISTIC OPTIMISM and Your Financial Security
Have you ever met a wealthy pessimist? One of our profession's most followed coaches, Nick Murray, urges us to teach our clients that "Optimism is the Only Realism."
At Estate Multipliers we embrace that mindset and expand on it:
"A Successful Investor must be an Optimist, without being a Fool."
After years of advising clients, we've found that the most successful outcomes apply that belief to a 3-part process. Click on the links below to learn more.
Retired business owner,
"... she has displayed the rare qualities of integrity, knowledge, and reliability in both her... investment professions."
There will be a time when you start to think about preserving your efforts of a lifetime. Whether you are thinking about passing your wealth on to your heirs or a smooth transition of your professional corporation or business, we can lend you our experience and expertise.
"...Always takes the time to explain things and answer all of our questions no matter how trivial they are."
Serving our clients to the best of our ability is always a team effort. We have a large group of colleagues to call upon and regularly collaborate with lawyers, accountants, lenders, and other wealth management and risk management specialists.
FOCUS ON WHAT IS WITHIN YOUR CONTROL
FOR LONG TERM SUCCESS WITH YOUR FINANCIAL GOALS
With well over 30 years' combined experience helping clients plan for and build on goals like these, we've learned that those who focused on the things that they could control while patiently implementing their written plans were most likely to enjoy long term success.
What can you control? What comes to mind is the goals you set, how you intend to achieve them (we will help you with that), and managing your own behaviours so you don't become your own biggest obstacle (helping you with that part is our greatest strength at Estate Multipliers).
"Ms. Marks' level of enthusiasm, thoroughness, and professionalism always exceed my expectations"

PLAN FOR LIFE EVENTS THAT ARE OUT OF YOUR CONTROL
It's uncomfortable, we know, but Realistic Optimism requires a good understanding of what could go wrong with your plans. You can expect us to point these risks out to you ahead of time so we can explore strategies for getting your plans back on track should the unforeseeable happen.
Insurance can be an affordable way to protect your income and assets from the burden of unexpected circumstances.
Christine's youngest daughter, Elizabeth, graduated from the Culinary Institute at Niagara College with an associates degree in Baking and Pastry Arts Management and spent almost 2 years working as a Chef de Partie at Treadwell's Cuisine in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake. She is now transitioning into the financial services industry and working under Christine while studying to earn her Life License. With this, she will be able to assist with insurance products and continue on to earn her designations as a financial planner at Estate Multipliers.
Elizabeth shares her mother's passion for helping individuals and families to reach their fullest financial potential and looks forward to carrying on Estate Multipliers philosophies to the next generation of investors.
She has found influential mentors in Christine and Matthew and they in turn are excited to see what innovative ideas she will bring to the company in order to respond best to our client's needs.
