My name is Elyse Clements. I'm a portfolio manager and wealth advisor with RBC Dominion Securities. I did a program at University of Toronto called Engineering Science, and then you specialized in aerospace engineering. I worked in engineering for about a year, and then I was offered a position in sales engineering. Sometimes, when you're working for a large organization, I really felt that there wasn't a strong relationship between how hard I worked and how well I did. That's when I started exploring the idea of other types of careers for myself.
At first, I thought, well, I'm very technical in nature. I'm very analytical in nature. Obviously, that's a natural fit to deal with finances, to deal with money. But eventually, I realized it's, yes, we are investment advisors, and we manage people's money, but it's really a relationship business. It's about our connections with our clients, and that's the part that I truly, truly love. Making my clients happy is what makes me happy. And it's what gets me out of bed every morning.
