Branch Manager

Tim Wardrop

Branch Administrator

Tina Reeve

  • Tim Wardrop
    MBA, FMA, Director, Branch Manager
  • After graduating with an MBA in 1981 from Queen's University, Tim worked in the Canadian head office of a Fortune 500 company for the first four years of his career. His spouse's family hails from the Ottawa valley, and so he requested a transfer to Ottawa in 1985. In 1989, rather than relocate with the company, Tim elected to remain here in the Nation's Capital, and moved on to work for KPMG over the next eight years. Following in the footsteps of a KPMG Partner who had switched careers to work in the investment industry, Tim joined ScotiaMcLeod in 1997. After a successful stint as a Wealth Advisor, Tim has been the Ottawa Branch Manager for the past seven years.
    He is married (still to the 'girl from the valley'!) and has two daughters, now both in University. Always a person involved in athletics, Tim still competes actively in alpine skiing, hockey and soccer, and pretends to be a competent golfer.

About the Ottawa Branch


  • Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, the Ottawa branch of ScotiaMcLeod has a long-standing reputation of excellence in the community - highlighted by the depth of our community involvement, and the embodiment of our firm's tagline - "Building Relationships for Life". We offer a great depth and breadth of talent in the areas of financial planning, wealth and estate planning, and overall family wealth management. With our team approach to helping affluent business owners, professionals, and their families, we have truly harnessed the power of the "Team of Experts" approach, including close liaison with our clients' other professional advisors.
    Over most of the past century, ScotiaMcLeod has established itself as a significant presence in Ottawa. We are home to more than 30 Wealth Advisors and 45 support staff, many with over 25 years of experience in our field, and - more notably - a large percentage whose entire career has been with this office and this firm. Our tremendous record of retention is based on a business environment that stresses an enviable level of mutual trust, respect, teamwork and fun.
    In addition to the stability in our personnel, we are constantly pushing the professional boundaries on what constitutes a "Wealth Advisor". The days of the traditional stock broker have given way to a level of service and expertise which is vastly different over the past two decades. The Ottawa office has been an industry leader in the 'Team of Experts' approach, and pioneered the roles of, as examples, in-house Financial Planning Consultant, Wealth and Estate Planning, and centralized account administration. We have also been leaders in institutional money management approaches for non-institutional clients, and in providing a choice between fee-based and transaction-based accounts.

    Our Strategy

    We strive to provide Wealth Advisors and support teams with an environment aligned to their objective of delivering great and professional service and products to clients, attracting new clients, and positioning themselves as primary advisor with their clients offering the full suite of financial services products and services.
  • Outstanding professionals called the Team of Experts support Wealth Advisor teams with holistic wealth management solutions to clients.
  • An environment that supports mutual respect, high professional standards, and the pursuit of great business done in an ethical, thoughtful way.
  • Community involvement and a healthy, fun atmosphere.
  • Strive to provide outstanding support to all staff by listening and facilitating optimal solutions to help everyone be the best they can be for their clients.
