Solvi Stokholm CIP, Financial Advisor and owner of Stokholm Insurance Ltd. - Co-operators and Mutual Fund Investment Specialist, Co-operators Financial Investment Services Inc., has called New Westminster, B.C., home for over 25 years. She and her family enjoy its big-town vibe, small-town charm and friendly community feel.
As a young immigrant from Norway, Stokholm started working in insurance in 1991. She dreamed of owning her own business – a dream that came true with Co-operators in 2010. Backed by the leading Canadian financial services co-operative, she worked hard to grow the business and recently added financial services to their offering.
She understands that most people feel they don’t know enough about insurance and investments.
“Our multilingual team will take the time to explain the various options available to meet your individual needs and to help protect your loved ones and financial future,” she says. “Although we’re part of a large Canadian-owned company, we are very much locally based and focused on our immediate community.”
As part of their community-oriented commitment, Stokholm Insurance Ltd. – Co-operators supports several local organizations, including the Hyack Festival Association and the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation. Recently, Stokholm Insurance Ltd. made a significant donation by sponsoring a room at the Mental Health and Substance Use Wellness Centre in New Westminster.
“I’m so happy we can now help our customers with their investment needs, such as TFSAs, RRSPs and RESP planning, in addition to meeting their personal and business insurance needs,” Stokholm says.
Co-operators has launched its own mutual fund division, Co-operators Financial Investment Services Inc., and offers clients funds from some of Canada’s largest independent asset managers, including AGF, Fidelity Investments, Franklin Templeton, and CI Investments.
“Our focus is local; our business is personal. And that’s how we like it,” she says. “We’re in the community for the community.”
