Wong, Maili portrait

Maili Wong is a powerful business leader, best-selling published author of “Smart Risk: Invest Like the Wealthy to Achieve a Work-Optional Life”, mother of two young children, active board member, mentor and community leader whose life’s work has been driven by a purpose for creating exponential impact. As First Vice-President and Portfolio Manager at CIBC Wood Gundy, Maili has risen through the ranks, becoming the top-producing advisor in her branch.  In 2017-2018, she ranked in the top 20 highest producing advisors in the country, out of over 1000 advisors.

Maili believes that true power is highlighted in times of challenge. It’s the unexpected challenges that shape us, stretch us and ultimately show us what we’re really made of. Maili’s contributions thus far are only the beginning of the exponential positive impact she intends to create, and hopes that as a WXN Top 100 Award winner, she can inspire more women and men to turn challenges into a source of strength, and find courage in their vulnerability to achieve their goals.
