Christophe Voegeli

Founder & Financial Planner



Christophe Voegeli began in the financial services industry in 2001, offering insurance and registered investments for an international financial services firm. This early apprenticeship made him want a better understanding of how money works, so he attended the University of Alberta and earned a degree in mathematical and statistical sciences with a specialization in finance. During university, Christophe excelled as a student: he sat on a chair committee board, achieved several academic awards, and earned an NSERC grant to pursue research in applied mathematics for fluid dynamics. Although his academic studies were very promising, Christophe had other plans for after his graduation. His personal experience building his own solid financial portfolio helped him realize that ultimately he wanted to use his abilities to help others build the same advantages.

In 2007, Christophe began full-time financial planning. His venture became Clear Focus Financial, where he specializes in helping career professionals and business owners in the Edmonton and Calgary regions. Since establishing his firm, Christophe’s client base has grown in equal step with his aptitudes. He has obtained his designation as a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), and Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU). With these punishingly selective certifications and the wide range of investments options they unlock, Christophe is able to offer his clients a truly diverse set of choices for their investments. It’s an offering that has already shown merit: Christophe soon earned Court of the Table honours with the Million Dollar Round Table, recognizing him as among the top 2% of financial planners across the globe.

Christophe was born and raised in the Edmonton area. When he isn’t working to build his clients’ portfolios, he enjoys competing in body building and mountain biking events, as well as guest lecturing at local universities. He, his wife, and their two young sons, also enjoy a variety of outdoor activities and spending time with their extended family.
