He works closely with clients to set up, expand, or restructure organizations to improve profits or to turn around struggling companies. Joshua’s newest venture, Afcote, is a global investment and finance consulting and management firm. The company supports individuals, private and institutional investors, family offices, and organizations by providing a host of services, including due diligence, transaction support, and corporate and structured finance. Joshua’s third company, XPolar, focuses on extending energy and technology infrastructure to rural regions around the world. He and his team work with partners and clients across the globe to design, build, develop, integrate, and manage energy and technology systems and infrastructure to help support these economies.


Joshua holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, an MSc in computer information systems, and an MA/Ph.D. in economics. He is a Level III candidate of the Chartered Financial Analysts (CFA) Institute, a Chartered Investment Manager (CIM®), a Certified Balanced Scorecard Professional, and a Fellow of the Canadian Securities Institute.
