Get to Know the People on Preston

Joe Ciampa

“I began investing at age 16. I dabbled in the markets and learned a lot. I went from studying engineering to studying finance. I’m working for RBC Dominion Securities here on Preston and really love it. I love helping families manage their wealth from A-Z including their investments, insurance, and building a comprehensive financial plan. Helping them accomplish their goals is very fulfilling to me.”

“I grew up just across the border in Massena. I got my degree in finance and said, ‘What am I going to do in a town of 12,000 people?’ I moved to New York City and worked for Bear Stearns, which was acquired by JPMorgan. I loved New York but something was missing. I have family in Ottawa. Every summer my parents and I would visit. I’ve always been drawn to it.”

“I remember spending time on Preston Street from an early age. I like the area. These condos are going up, businesses are changing for the better. There are a lot of new restaurants and bars. You have young and older business owners. It’s kind of a social scene as well. It’s a really great vibe. Taking a break from work and going for a walk you see a lot of different people. It’s a really cool place to work. When my wife and I got married we had our ceremony in St. Anthony’s and the reception at Sala San Marco, so I hold Preston close to my heart.”
