About Us

About: Arif Kanji

Every year I help dozens of families with their financial planning needs. I’d love an opportunity to help you with yours.

Since 2012, I have been helping Canadian families with their financial planning needs, with solutions ranging from personal and corporate life insurance and living benefits to estate preservation tools. As a registered investment advisor with Aligned Capital Partners Inc., I am able to provide investment strategies that are tailored to each individual’s needs. I have earned the distinguished Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), Canada’s premier wealth transfer and estate planning designation as well as the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation which is the gold standard in the financial planning industry.
I love what I do because it gives me the opportunity to assist others. I was raised in a strong household, where supporting and caring for each other was a big part of our family values so I get a lot of satisfaction from offering my support to my clients and their families. Outside of the office, I am a huge sports fan and love travelling to different sporting venues around the world.

I hope to connect with you if you are looking for financial planning assistance. In today’s uncertain economy, it can be challenging to know where to focus; however, I know I can provide you with insight based on my experience and knowledge to best position you in today’s challenging market.

Let’s connect soon!

About: Benjamin Lewandowski

I help the disengaged investor reach their financial goals by taking the guesswork out of their investment strategy and bringing clarity to their financial plan. Let me build a personalized plan and help you reach financial independence.

From the beginning of my career, my biggest goal has been making sure clients feel like they have been given unbiased, expert advice. In an industry with very little transparency between the advisor and the client, not to mention the low barriers of entry, it is imperative for clients to have justified service for the costs they pay.
I have earned my Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®) designation and am registered with IIROC as a Portfolio Manager with Aligned Capital Partners Inc. I specialize in investment strategies tailored to affluent clients and have the ability to conduct discretionary portfolio management. Being options licensed allows me to offer clients another investment solution to assist in increasing their income stream at retirement. My passion is helping clients reach their financial goals and bring clarity to their investment concerns by designing a properly positioned portfolio based on their needs. For improved transparency, I manage client accounts on a fee for service basis (through Aligned Capital Partners Inc.).
I feel that prospective clients will find true value dealing with KL Advisory for their financial planning, estate solutions, and tax strategies needs.  Likewise, through Aligned Capital Partners Inc., clients have access to services of an all in one investment brokerage.
In my spare time I love to play sports, especially basketball. I also enjoy the great outdoors, more so when I am able to get out on the river and fly fish. Most importantly, I always try to make time for those closest to me, both family and friends.

About: Alicia Kennedy

Ever since I enrolled in business school, I realized very quickly I wanted to pursue a career in the financial services industry. Over the last year, I have been offering extensive administrative knowledge in various fields to KL Advisory Group and strive to provide our clients with the highest level of customer satisfaction. As I finish my Bachelor of Business degree at Mount Royal University, I plan to grow my career with KL Advisory Group and continue to provide exceptional advice and care to our clients.

When I’m not in the office, you can find me on the golf course putting for birdies.
