Who is Naoshad Pochkhanawala?

Amiko was founded by Naoshad Pochkhanawala who has worked in the financial services industry for over 20 years accumulating skills and expertise in a variety of areas. In his 3rd month in financial services, at the tender age of 22, an old and experienced broker told Naoshad how he, the broker, had 40 years of experience in the business, rather than having one year of experience 40 times. Naoshad took this to heart and in his career he has been lucky enough to work and specialize in different areas at various times, participating, learning, creating and accumulating experiences few others in the industry have. You can read about some of Naoshad’s experience below.

Once referred to by a client as, ‘The no BS advisor’ Naoshad is known for his strong advocacy of his clients and speaking out about industry practises that don’t benefit consumers. Amiko reflects this fierce independence and the agency has contracts with over 20 different life, accident and sickness insurance companies while the deposit broker section of the business provides products from over 25 different banks and credit unions.

Naoshad Pochkhanawala is a Chartered Life Underwriter, financial & estate planner and considered an expert in various areas where life insurance, financial planning & tax legislation intersect in Ontario. He has prepared and conducted training seminars for members of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Toronto, the Ontario Association of Family Mediators, the Ontario Association of Collaborative Professionals (previously the Ontario Collaborative Law Federation), industry groups and for life insurance companies themselves. He has also presented financial education and financial planning seminars to the executives & staff at the head offices of Canadian Tire, Toromont & Sears among others.
