[Meet Sue and Drew RBC Wealth Management Clients]
[DREW:] Sue and I met at University. I was getting a coffee in the lounge and saw her and just fell in love. Just that simple.
[Drew and his partners recently sold their national network of veterinary hospitals “Calgary North Veterinary Hospital and Emergency Service”]
When the sale of the company came on there's a lot of things that came with that and taxes and creating trusts and things like that that you know aren't really our strength.
[SUE:] You're just relying on what you hear from friends, what you get online and you know, it's difficult because you're always worried you're going to miss something.
[DREW:] We had our goals. They were pretty roughed in goals. We didn't really know exactly how they would be actuated and the team pulled it together and sort of said, “Okay well if you want to do it, here’s the options.”
[VI LIVINIUK:] Drew and Sue sold their Veterinarian Practice.
So that meant that things on the financial front became a little more complicated, and they didn’t really know where to start.
[Vi Liviniuk, CIM, CFP, B.Ed. Vice President, Associate Portfolio Manager. RBC Dominion Securities Inc. RBC Wealth Management]
At that point it was important that would that I bring in all of my financial partners that are specialized in helping clients with different facets of their financial well-being. Whether it's a state planning, tax planning, insurance planning, right down to charitable giving.
[Van Thai, PFP. Private Banker. RBC Wealth Management]
If you're dealing with the advisor on investment front, and you dealing with me on the personal private banking front, it's just seamless. We are a team.
[DREW:] It's important to us to have a community influence and our local community is important to us and we probably spread our donation dollars out to the various human charities, but the majority of what we do stays within that animal realm, and most of it to the Calgary Humane Society.
[Cody Cormier, B.B.A. (Finance), LL.B., TEP Vice President, High Net Worth Planning Services RBC Wealth Management]
(Sue and Drew wanted to impart their values and beliefs to their son, but I suggested that they schedule annual family meetings and at that family meeting one of the things they could do is talk about philanthropy and setting up a private endowment fund inside a public foundation would be a good idea, and that endowment fund would generate income annually and it could get directed to the parents’ favorite charity or the son's favorite charity.
[DREW:] To have a fund that's of itself can can make its own wealth and not just be a stagnant donation every year that comes out of your general account. And it's doing quite well so that's also good for our charities.
[SUE:] Whenever we want to make a contribution, we just give them a call and it's all taken care of. We just have to give them the name of the charity and that's it.
[DREW:] It's a rewarding thing to put something together and then have it come through exactly how you envisioned it.
[SUE:] We have this team of people and they know us and they know what we want to do, what our goals are, what our aspirations are and I can’t say enough about it.
