  • It gives me great pleasure to write about Gaston Lord and Safeguard Insurance &Financial Services. When I decided to buy insurance for myself and family, I interviewed many people before I decided Gaston was the right choice. At the time Gaston was working for another company before he started his own. I found Gaston to be patient, very pleasant and answered all my questions thoroughly. He always took the time to call me back and visit me regularly or when I needed to see him. He is not like other agents who visits you once a year and tells you the market has gone down for everyone. The best thing is he treats my account like his account. He will call me and tell me, I suggest we reevaluate your account, the market is sliding, and he parks the money in a safer investment, until its time reach our goals again. That is tailored made investments to me. Gaston is like a great neighbour, he looks after your house when you’re not looking. Thanks for everything Gaston!

As a long-time client of Gaston’s, he has provided options on a number of products, simplified complicated processes and explained documentation in an easy to understand format for my investment and insurance packages. He made himself available to answer any questions I had. And was always happy to meet and advise on investment choices, portfolio updating and review of my policies on a regular basis. Thanks Gaston!
