Our Team

Our company founder, Ray Sader, started working for The Manufacturers Life Insurance Company in 1958, as a life insurance agent. As his business grew, he incorporated and founded Sader Insurance Consultants Ltd. in 1977. 

In 1998, Ray’s son Daryl joined him and the company changed its name to Sader Financial Advisors Group Inc. Daryl, a Chartered Professional Accountant, brought with him more than 15 years in the accounting industry and a strong understanding of tax and estate planning. 

In 2008, Ray celebrated 50 years in the financial services industry – all with Manulife. Ray's industry awards were numerous and included the John Rodgers Award, the John H. Blackburn Award and the Manulife Five Star Master Builder Award. 

Ray is now retired, but Daryl and his team continue to build the company with a solid understanding of tax, estate, investment, and family succession planning, making their knowledge and experience invaluable.
