Rory has gained valuable experience at a number of different financial institutions, he very much values the independence and open architecture platform that Richardson Wealth provides.

Born in Prince George, BC, Rory moved to Vancouver at the age of 3, and has called Vancouver home ever since. Rory is married with two young daughters. In his spare time, Rory takes full advantage of all that the west coast has to offer.
