Peter Maranger

Financial Planner/Owner*

Mutual Fund Investment Specialist**

Before joining Co-operators in 2003, Peter started his career in the retail automotive business, spending 11 years within the Ford franchise dealer system. He then worked for GE, with GE Commercial Equipment Finance. He was responsible for providing multi-million dollar financing solutions to companies in the automotive manufacturing sector, and also worked for GE Fleet Services, which provides leasing and fleet management solutions to medium and large companies. Several times he won the Top Achievers award, which recognizes the top two sales producers in the organization.


Peter's mission statement is "Earning your trust by ensuring your financial security." Clients have many choices when it comes to insurance products. Most consumers have never read their insurance policies and very few truly understand them completely. Peter takes great personal satisfaction in understanding his clients' needs and tailoring an insurance solution that works best for them. He goes one step further, communicating in terms that everyone can understand. Peter's clients truly appreciate this level of service.

Peter has been a Stratford resident for over 30 years. He is married and has four adult children. He has been very involved in both Stratford area and global community initiatives, volunteering through the Rotary Club, his church, Memorial Baptist Church, and many local charitable organizations.
