At Eastport, people come to us for investments, insurance, retirement, and estate planning.
Our clients stay for the purpose and life we help them unlock – with the expertise of heavy-hitters plus the fine attention of a boutique. But it’s about more than stewarding your wealth.
The numbers are the easy part. We expect more of money, beyond the red and the black. We are endlessly curious about life’s interplay of friction and forward motion. This is the space in which we work.
We are Eastport. This is where we begin.
A Little Taster
In the 80s and 90s, Wayne Lewis used the name Eastport for his construction, development and distribution businesses – all of which embodied the vision of a unified, cross-border Atlantic Region with shared values and opportunities.
Wayne Lewis died when his son Jonathan was just 16 years old. In a tribute to his father’s legacy, Jonathan took steps to hold on to the Eastport name, hoping to revive it one day.
During his college years he did just that, setting up Eastport Landscaping in 1997. By 2004 Jonathan was Manager of Financial Planning with a large firm, but became frustrated with the industry’s lack of integrity and flexibility. He and three of his best staff formed the Eastport Financial Group, building a truly limitless, creative, client-centred team from the ground up.
Today, we’ve grown from our original Halifax office to three more locations in Mahone Bay and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, and in Toronto. Our staff are just as committed to our original mission as our founders were seventeen years ago: to help others extend their legacy as the Lewis family has.
