Vice-President & Estate Planning Specialist, RBC Wealth Management Financial Services Inc.
The power of what we do.
“I wasn’t long in my career before I delivered a cheque from a policy I’d consulted on. My colleagues told me that once I did that, I would understand why I was in this business. They were right.”
Thirty-five years later, Rick does what he does because he has witnessed the power of properly structured estate planning solutions to ensure one’s legacy and change the lives of others.
Unsurprisingly, Rick has accumulated a great deal of estate planning knowledge. But the most important thing he brings is experience. That’s the difference he and Associate Estate Planning Specialist Lynn Prudom offer as a team: a deep ability to support advisors and their clients that can only come from more than 35 years of working with clients in almost every situation.
