Darvin Zurfluh, CFP, FMA, RFC, FCSI

CEO and Chairman

As Founder and Chairman of the Board, Darvin brings over 19 years of well-rounded financial services experience. Darvin has many years experience in the exempt market, mutual funds, life insurance, mortgages, and over 14 years of experience in real estate investments. Darvin has a diploma in Business Management and has been committed to expanding his knowledge and skills in the industry. His devotion to excellence in the field has culminated in his designation as a Fellow of Canadian Securities Institute (FCSI); the highest honour in the financial services industry.

starting his career in the banking industry provided Darvin a solid foundation from which he was able to quickly and successfully transition into the investment arena and become the Top Canadian Senior Financial Producer for a large insurance firm.

Darvin was a pioneer in the industry; bringing the first sizeable exempt market distribution channel in Western Canada. Known as Alberta Land & Investment Brokers, this company was recognized as Alberta’s fastest growing company in 2010 by Alberta Venture (under $20 million category). With the welcomed changes to market regulation, Darvin realized that he would have to make a very serious commitment to the industry if he wanted to provide investment brokers and investors with better service. With his daring vision and formidable knowledge of the field, he formed Pinnacle Wealth Brokers Inc. Pinnacle is a founding member of the National Exempt Market Association, where Darvin is on the board as an active Director.

Darvin is a fourth generation Albertan and resides in Calgary with his wife Kim and four children. He enjoys water sports, hockey and skiing.

Pinnacle is a values and purpose driven organization. We value respect, integrity and commitment above all else, and it shapes the way we work and why we work. Pinnacle has carefully selected our head office team based on their passion and enthusiasm for the industry, as well as their experience and expertise.

Pinnacles’ overriding goal is to provide “attractive risk adjusted returns” for its clients. Pinnacle selects issuers only after material due diligence to ensure integrity, and provide transparency into the nature of the investment as well as the associated risks.

Pinnacle works with their Dealer Representatives to be able to offer excellent investment advice to their clients by providing ongoing professional development, product and issuer training, conferences, webinars and conference calls. Representatives can focus on their client relationships because they have a team of experts and administrators to rely on.
