Ryan Gaunce, CFP®

Founder, BEng

Ryan grew up on his family’s farm in New Brunswick. He showed an aptitude for numbers at an early age and by 10 years old had already begun his own investment portfolio. He obtained a degree in engineering in 2006 from Dalhousie University where he learned that the plan must fit reality and not just look good on paper.

Ryan founded and built Bridgeline with the focus of getting every client a customized financial plan that fits their life. With his unique 3M approach to investing, Ryan and his team have developed successful investment and wealth creation strategies designed to create wins regardless of where we are in the market cycle.
