Ron Aitkens
Certified Financial Planner Ron Aitkens, President of the Harvest Group of Companies, was raised in southern Alberta and currently lives in Lethbridge. He has long held a passion for helping others succeed. That, along with his entrepreneurial prowess, launched him into the financial world 15 years ago. His beginnings as a Certified Financial Planner led him primarily to farmers' homes, where he quickly realized there was more he wanted to and could do to service their retirement needs. He began looking for alternatives to traditional investment forums and for ways to provide clients with increased retirement income. This venture ultimately led Ron to his current focus - using the power of syndication for individual investment success. Having grown up in a grass roots, hands on farming community, Ron knows full well that a 'hard work' ethic and creative solutions to life's challenges are key to building long term success. Establishing credibility and a reputation built on integrity, his dream to help others realize their own has become a reality for him. The success Ron has enjoyed does not stop there, though.

But a judge did give a court-appointed monitor greater powers to restructure the insolvent firms - Legacy Communities, Airdrie Capital, Airdrie Country Estates, Railside Capital and Foundation Place - and maximize recoveries of the $92.9 million raised by former pastor Ron Aitkens and his firms at the height of Alberta's real estate boom.
Instead, about $9.3 million was transferred to a firm controlled by Aitkens and invested in properties in Panama, Ontario and Red Deer, money Narfason has now asked be repaid. The monitor also found the firm had spent $2.4 million more than expected in the offering, including an overpayment of approximately $550,000 in management fees to Aitkens' firms and about $660,000 in unknown disbursements which may have related to the original land acquisition. Upset by how their money had been used, Aitkens' perceived conflict of interest and his slowness in supplying Ernst and Young information, the investors' committee wanted him removed as a director and a restructuring officer of their choice to replace the court-appointed monitor. "We wanted Aitkens out and a manager we can trust at the helm," said Shurko, "to give us transparent information about these assets and to maximize what's left." Those costs include about $300,000 in management fees that continue to be paid to firms controlled by Aitkens. He was disciplined twice in 2009 for breaking securities laws. The Alberta Securities Com-mission fined Aitkens $45,000 and Foundation Capital another $120,000 for misleading remarks made a year earlier while raising money for a planned real estate development near Priddis. Authorities in Saskatchewan issued a cease trade order because Aitkens and his related firms failed to file their offering with regulators before selling investments to residents of that province.

A statement of claim filed in Court of Queen's Bench on Wednesday alleges hundreds of people invested their savings in a scheme that improperly siphoned millions of dollars to Ronald James Aitkens and seven other people named in the suit.
The suit alleges Aitkens created a series of entities called the Harvest Group of Companies, which raised $500 million for 16 ventures in real estate development, resource development and financial investment since 2001. Although the plaintiffs don't claim to know the exact role each of the seven defendants allegedly played, the suit describes Aitkens as the "directing or controlling mind" of the companies involved. "Aitkens personally moved the scheme forward, made misrepresentations as described above to the investors and received benefit from investors' funds. Aitkens was the 'face' of the Harvest Group of Companies and of the investment scheme," the statement of claim said.
