He was educated in Quebec and at Trinity College School, Fort Hope, Ontario.

When the Union Bank of Canada opened a branch in London in 1911 Mr. Ashe was made a member of the London Committee, and the London office was placed in his charge.
Mr. Ashe's opinion on Canadian finance is recognised by bankers as being sound, not only by London, but also by Paris, Berlin and other large financial centres.
