Exceptional service and expertise

Colosimo Financial proudly traces its roots to 1959, the year Jim Colosimo founded this highly successful Thunder Bay firm. Jim had a very clear vision and one ahead of its time - to provide clients with exceptional service and expertise in the areas of wealth strategies, investments, and estate planning. His commitment to this vision and his many years of hard work earned him a superb professional reputation. In 1990, Jim's son Mark joined the firm to carry on this vision and to continue to meet the diverse financial needs of our community.
