Bob Fleischacker

CEA, CHS, CLU, CFP®

Senior Insurance Advisor

Bob is one of those people who has always known that you never regret the decisions you make based on your values. He has values around service and around ensuring his clients make sound financial decisions. He’s acted on those values and his career shows it.

Bob is a Chartered Life Underwriter, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® and Certified Health Specialist – he knows how important it is to be prepared to serve his clients. Around the time he established Stonehaven Financial Group in Markham, Ontario, he quickly found himself appearing on BNN TV, being frequently quoted in national financial print media and guest lecturing at Osgoode Hall.

In service of the industry and his colleagues, Bob has been a Board Member of The Financial Planning Standards Council and also, after five years as a Director, served as the Chair of Advocis. Today, Bob is the Past-Chair of the Advocis Century Initiative, a program to strengthen the financial reserves of the Association.

Perhaps what’s most important to know about Bob, however, is that people listen to him. They listen to him because he’s practical; they listen to him because he won’t just accept the easy answers to tough questions; and they listen to him because he won’t talk about what he doesn’t understand.
