Financial Clarity for our Clients
We believe in empowering our clients to participate in the creation and maintenance of their overall financial well being through proper education and ensuring an understanding of the possible outcomes involved in each decision. It always surprises us to learn that so many individuals are removed from their planning and rely on their advisers to recommend the best course of action. This tends to be the result of a lack of understanding of the proposed concept on the part of the client or their financial team not spending time to ensure the client fully understands and appreciates the possible benefits and disadvantages of each proposal.
We take the time to educate you every step of the way. Having financial clarity is the key to financial success.

Brad Bumstead, CFP
Financial Advisor with Investia Financial Services Inc.
A proud alumni of the University of Victoria, I worked with my Father, a former accountant and financial advisor, for several years before branching off on my own. At the outset of my career I observed the disjointed and biased financial advice being offered without any understanding of the underlying financial goals. When I launched Clearpath Financial Planners in 2013, my goal was to help successful business owners and professionals get organized in all 6 areas of their financial lives through comprehensive financial planning.
Integrating the CFP® code of ethics and practices into my planning I help our clients gain clarity around their financial goals and not only create but implement their personalized plan to achieve their version of success. Our team specializes in implementing a comprehensive plan that integrates all 6 areas of one’s personal and corporate financial life with coordinated integration. We work best with successful professionals, business owners and executives who are focused on growing their business and value comprehensive advice. Our team empowers our clients to reduce taxes, invest smarter, and retire on their terms.
When I’m not crafting comprehensive financial plans, you can find me coaching my daughter’s soccer team, walking my pet Pomeranian Lil Miss, practicing my Mandarin Chinese, or perfecting the agenda for our next family Disney vacation.
I’m a proud member of the following professional organizations:

When she’s not helping client’s, you can find Olive dining with her son James, listening to classic country music, enjoying a romance novel, or catching up on the latest Korean drama show.

Matt Artis, Project Manager
Bradley was very helpful setting me up with long term life insurance so that my family were provided for if something happened to me. They gave me various options to choose from and steered me towards what best suited my situation. It was a much easier and more affordable option than mortgage insurance. I would highly recommend Brad and his company to anyone that asked.
Dane Kingsbury, Real Estate Professional
Bradley has helped a number of my clients with their insurance needs, especially with regard to ensuring that their mortgage balances are covered. In doing so, he is helping them save money while having better coverage. In addition to this, having a quality Financial Planner like Bradley allows me to feel confident that my clients will be well taken care for the long term.
