Jamie MacNicol CIM®


Jamie MacNicol grew up in a family of overachievers. “In a good way,” he says, explaining that it was an environment that nurtured collaboration and teamwork as the path to success. “My parents instilled a sense of hard work, accountability, and, above all, trust that formed the foundation of who I am today.”

Jamie’s love of all things finance comes from his family roots too. From trying to understand the stock market at his grandfather’s side, to having family members who were traders and financial advisors, Jamie has long had an affinity for this world.

After earning his Bachelor of Business Management at Dalhousie University, Jamie worked with wealth advisors across Canada for 10 years at Assante Wealth Management, where he had most recently been an Associate Regional Vice President.

Newport’s independent status, along with the team culture, is what has made Jamie very happy to join this past January 2023. “After my first two months at Newport, it felt like a family. It’s a ‘how can we work together? How can I help you?’ approach.”

Jamie’s work focuses on proposal development and projection analysis for new and existing clients. He holds the Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®) designation, which focuses on leadership, strategy, finance, accounting, management operations and organizational analysis.

A Toronto native, Jamie just bought his first home with his fiancée and their one-year-old golden retriever, Billy. A die-hard Leafs fan, sports are a big part of Jamie’s life, and hockey and golf are his passions. Travelling is at the top of his list too. Jamie tries to never travel to the same place twice and always involves some kind of activity like skiing, hiking, or whatever the destination in question is known for.
