Colin Biblow, CFP
Vice-President & Estate Planning Specialist, RBC Wealth Management Financial Services Inc.
“There is always more to do for other people.”
This fundamental belief is Colin’s central promise to advisors and their clients. It means there is always a need to keep the conversation going, in order to ensure that the advisor and client have the best possible insurance and estate planning advice at all times. And it means delivering relentlessly on what truly differentiates his team: their unique Value Builder process, which discovers hidden value in the advisor-client relationship.
When it all comes down to it, Colin’s Prairie upbringing has given him a sense of proportion: “I don’t have visions of grandeur. My career goal is to be recognized by my peers as one who does the best possible work for clients.” Colin’s personal goal, of course, is for the Riders to win. A lot.
