Founder & Principal

Lyle joined IG Wealth Management in 1989 and established Karasick & Associates, now known as Karasick, Crabtree, & Murray. Since then, Lyle has been a respected financial advisor and is recognized for his extensive experience in comprehensive financial planning for high-net-worth individuals, families, retirees, professionals, and corporations. Lyle was among the first to earn the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® designation in Canada and currently focuses his practice on wealth creation and preservation through advanced tax and estate planning strategies.

As he believes that knowledge should be shared, Lyle coaches financial advisors and lectures extensively to industry and non-industry audiences. As a former business owner and managing director, Lyle also counsels business owners on corporate financial planning issues.

Lyle lives in South Surrey with his family and serves in various community and professional activities. He is currently involved with United Way and the BC Canadian Cancer Society.

Lyle also performs voluntarily for children's groups as an amateur magician.


 Lyle has and continues to be a pioneer in the financial services industry. One need only look to the loyalty and dedication of the clients he works with as a testament to the professionalism he lends to his craft.
