David S. Shymko, MBA, R.F.P., TEP

Hailing from the interior of B.C., David received both his Bachelor of Science in Geophysics and his Masters of Business Administration in Finance from the University of British Columbia (UBC).  In 1972, he partnered with Doug Macdonald to form Macdonald, Shymko & Company Ltd. (MSC).  Over the years, David has added to his credentials by obtaining the designations of R.F.P. (Registered Financial Planner) and TEP (Trust & Estate Practitioner).  David is registered under MSC’s Portfolio Manager status.

David was a long-standing member of the Canadian Association of Financial Planners (CAFP) and served in many capacities, including National President (1991-1993).  He continues to be a member in the CAFP’s successor organization, the Institute of Advanced Financial Planners (IAFP), is an active member of the Canadian Tax Foundation, and most recently became a member of the international Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). Throughout his career, he has contributed to and been referenced in local and national newspapers and magazines on a variety of issues.

Having grown up in the mountains, David has climbed many of the peaks in the Rockies, and hiking continues to be a pursuit of his.  As a seasoned world traveler, he feels his experiences abroad provide him with life perspective and an appreciation for what it means to live in Canada.
