Arthur Claxton’s career choices have always been about helping people solve problems.
After his graduation from University in Manitoba he moved to Toronto where he worked nationally for the Anglican Church of Canada, helping young people in organizations across the country solve their most pressing problems.
His skill in helping people this way led him to Saskatchewan where he worked for the provincial government running programs to help people who felt disenfranchised begin to access programs of the government and become more resourceful.
Subsequently he moved to British Columbia to work with the provincial government. He worked as a training coordinator with the department of social services in both northern BC and in Vancouver, with all levels of that organization.
After a successful career in government he wanted to move into the private sector. He noticed that well educated people around him were making serious financial mistakes, simply because they did not have access to information to help with their financial decisions. This realization prompted him to begin work in the financial services industry where he could both educate and help people solve their financial issues. He first started in that industry in 1981.
He has subsequently worked with several firms both as a representative as well as taking a management role in three different securities companies. He is licensed to help people in British Columbia, and Ontario.
Claxton takes his role as a “wealth creation specialist” and educator seriously, as he has taught financial planning at British Columbia’s Institute of Technology, run public seminars through the Department of Continuing Education and he produced and directed his own television program called the Money Masters for two seasons. He specializes in two main areas, first, working with people who are retired or about to retire to create guaranteed income streams and secondly to help people with mortgages eliminate that debt with a unique mortgage freedom strategy. He enjoys helping people review their total financial picture and bringing in one of his many experts to consult when it is most useful. He helps his clients learn wealth creation concepts which will accelerate the growth of their wealth and provide financial security to their families. In 2011, he created Ayoba Financial Services to offer a venue where people could access his services via the internet.
