Uche Odita, PFP
I bring over 15 years of experience to my role as a Private Banker, serving a select group of clients in the greater Edmonton Area of Alberta. My varied career includes financial planning, business banking, business analytics and dedicated personal service. I also bring an international flavor having worked in the financial services sector here in Canada as well as in the United Kingdom, and West Africa.
As a Private Banker, I support my clients with sophisticated banking services and provide access to personalized and specialized lending solutions and flexible credit packages. By collaborating with my BMO Wealth partners, I facilitate access to commercial banking, investments, trusts, estate and succession planning in Canada and in key markets worldwide. Where appropriate, I will collaborate with my client's own professional advisors to deliver comprehensive, integrated financial solutions. As a Personal Financial Planner (PFP), and working with a dedicated team of planners, I am able to provide in-depth financial planning expertise to my clients, many of whom have complex business, personal and family wealth needs.
I hold a bachelor's degree in Political Studies and a master’s degree in International Relations from King’s College, London, England. I am also a certified professional and hold the Personal Financial Planner (PFP) and Qualified Associate Financial Planner (QAFP) designations.
Active in my community, I volunteer with Boys &Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton& Area, Edmonton Region Immigrant Employment Employment Council (ERIEC) and I work actively to promote financial literacy to young adults and newcomers to Canada.
I am active outside the office and enjoy shopping, traveling, running and walks outdoors with my poodle, Finn.
