Yasmeen Seddiq CIM®

Director of Wealth Management

Born in the Middle East, educated in the United States, with a career path that includes international finance postings, Yasmeen brings a truly global perspective to the Newport wealth management group.

After graduating from Georgia Southern University with a BBA in Finance, Yasmeen joined a private equity firm in Amman providing ultra-high-net-worth investors with access to select alternative investment opportunities. It was in this role that Yasmeen realized her desire and potential for a more comprehensive planning approach to serving high-net-worth clients and she went on to become a Senior Relationship Manager with an Oman-based securities firm.

In 2011, Yasmeen came to Canada and accepted a position with a major bank where she worked as a financial advisor providing integrated wealth management while earning her Chartered Investment Manager designation.

In early 2019, Yasmeen joined Newport’s wealth management group to provide dedicated financial planning expertise for high-net-worth clients. “I was attracted by the fast-growing, entrepreneurial nature of the firm and its client base,” she says. “I love helping busy, successful people to become as intentional and organized financially, as they are in other areas of their lives.”

As a mother of two young children, Yasmeen capably juggles work-life balance, with some time remaining to experiment with new recipes and work them off with yoga and Pilates.
