From the moment I first met Zena I was completely comfortable with her being my Financial Advisor. I didn’t feel intimidated and felt that she had a caring and vested interest in helping me achieve my goals. Recently, I had mentioned to my friends that if they are seeking a Financial Advisor, I would highly recommend Zena for these exact reasons. Zena is an amazing woman!
When I first met Zena at one of our financial meetings, I knew immediately, she was a very caring person. She listened intently to our questions and answered them in terms we could understand. When my husband passed away, she was able to get all our Investments changed over to my name very quickly and gave me the confidence to be able to deal with all my finances and commitments. She helped me get the Insurance claims done and gave me advice on the work needed with an Estate, even recommending a lawyer and an accountant.
I feel that Astra truly cares about fullfilling my financial needs and concerns. I ENJOY my periodic appointments with Zena to keep me on financial track and her most helpful guidance. Love your location and office and wishing you all the best.
Welcome to Astra!
I started my financial career 15 years ago at the bottom of the ladder and worked my way up to mentoring with one of the top financial planners in the province. In 2015 I started Astra Financial so that I could offer a more personal service. I believe in quality vs quantity and that it is the secret to our success. Astra Financial has become a community for our clients and we are proud of our relationships and performance.
I am a published author and I have contributed to various media publications. I am also a very proud finalist for a Wealth Professional Award. However, my biggest career achievement is celebrating our client’s successes. It is the best part of my job!
When I am not being a financial planning nerd, you can find me travelling west, taking up tennis as a new hobby or enjoying a chai latte at my favourite coffee shop. As a recent empty nester, I’m up to any adventure now!
Zena Amundsen has written a book about the most taboo subject of them all – money!
