Werner C. Duever, RRC

Insurance Advisor
Investment Representative

I was born in Labrador, Newfoundland and moved to London, Ontario with my parents at age 11. I worked in London in manufacturing and engineering for more than 20 years before entering the financial sector. My decision to enter into financial services came about through my long personal interest in the markets, as well as witnessing how sound planning (or lack of it) could have a profound effect on individuals, families and businesses. My goal is to help my clients achieve a more financially secure future. What I have found, is that quite often it is the small changes that make the biggest impact.

I volunteer with several organizations including my church, The London Chamber of Commerce, and Junior Achievement. My interests include ballroom and Latin dancing, and I have competed in several dance competitions across Ontario with my wife, Kristen.
