The firm was started in February of 1984 and their first office was located in the heart of downtown at 155 Water Street. Initially, the business was run only by Eric Coombs and Paul Gardner and the business name was Gardner & Coombs. They later relocated to two different locations as they grew and the firm now operates out of their office on 1033 Topsail Road.
From our humble beginnings on Water Street, to the professionalism and passion that we currently bring to the table, to our plans for the future, our story is one of growth and a focus on our clients.
As a Newfoundland-based business, we understand the value of community. We understand that you don’t want to leave the financial planning for your business up to a complete stranger. You don’t want to trust your family’s finances to someone you don’t feel a connection with.
