About ACN
Financial Group

We’re a family run business that is passionate about what we do. Read how we got started and where we are now.

ACN Financial Group was founded by Arnold Nyholt, who started his career with a major life insurance company in 1988. By 1994, Arnold branched out on his own to develop what is now ACN Financial Group. At ACN we strive to provide individuals, families and small businesses a personalized financial management plan to accomplish their financial goals for both now and in the future.

With a growing clientele, Arnold’s late wife Connie joined the company on a full-time basis in 2013 to manage the administrative responsibilities until her passing in 2019. In 2015, their son-in-law Brad Kooy joined the company as a licensed advisor. This expansion has enhanced ACN’s capacity to provide their clients with professional financial management services.

Arnold Nyholt

Arnold is the President & Owner of ACN Financial Group. He graduated from York University with an Honours degree in Economics & Political Science and holds his Registered Retirement Consultant (RRC) designation. Arnold is an avid sports fan and active member at New Life Community Church in Brampton.

Brad Kooy

Certified Financial Planner

Brad graduated from Redeemer University with a B.A. majoring in Religion & Theology and Phys. Ed in 2012. A B.Ed. degree followed after attending teacher’s college at York University in 2014.

In Memory

Connie Nyholt

In 2013 she joined her husband Arnold at ACN Financial Group on a full-time basis as an executive assistant. Connie was an integral part of providing administrative services to a growing company. Connie enjoyed spending time with her family, travelling, reading and learning to play the piano. She was also an active member at New Life Community Church in Brampton.

What Our Clients
are Saying.

At ACN Financial Group, client satisfaction is our ultimate goal. See what our clients have to say about our work.

Investing can be a scary process, but I knew by reputation that I could trust ACN Financial Group. Brad was honest and helpful with me throughout the process of rebuilding my financial life. He listened to what I wanted, and took my concerns seriously. I am not being sold a product, I am being guided to achieve my own goals with a professional I trust and know is on my side.

Emily S.

I’m so glad that I switched to ACN Financial Group for my investments. When I was working with the bank, I always felt passed around and struggled to understand where my money was being invested. Brad took the time to help me understand where I’m investing. Working with ACN Financial Group has made me feel secure and confident that my investments are being handled wisely.

Emily C.

I was introduced to Arnold over 20 years ago when I was just starting in my career. Over these years, with his guidance, my family and I are now in a very secure financial position from investments to insurance to estate planning. Arnold is very responsive, approachable and personable. He takes the time to answer questions and does not push products. Everyone needs to have a ‘financial guy’ and you will not do wrong by making Arnold and his team yours.


We started working with Arnold as newlyweds, ladened with student loans, a brand new house, and at the beginning of our careers. We didn’t know anything about insurance, managing debt, or growing wealth. Arnold worked with us to ensure that we had affordable life insurance and retirement contributions to secure our future. We wouldn’t have been able to achieve our goals as quickly as we have without the guidance we received from Arnold.
