Richardson Wealth

Not your typical wealth management firm

We're an independent, leading-edge wealth management firm accountable to a very important group of people - our clients.

Our firm has a history of serving some of the most successful families and entrepreneurs in the country. And there's something distinctly different in the way we do business. For one thing, our Investment Advisor teams consist of some of the sharpest minds in the business, each bringing many years of experience and knowledge to the table. They're all fully invested in Richardson Wealth as owners, so they'll ensure that the priorities of the business are fully aligned with your priorities.

As an independent firm, we're able to access exclusive and innovative solutions for our clients. We also have Tax & Estate Planning professionals located across the country who will work with you and your Investment Advisor to create a customized Wealth Plan that best suits your unique financial needs and goals.

Add to this our commitment to the highest level of service, and you have a wealth management firm that's not only different from the rest, but one that makes a difference. At Richardson Wealth we understand your needs. And we'll continue to strive for excellence and earn your trust.

The history of six generations of business in the Richardson Family are fundamental reasons why Ellis Wealth has chosen to operate under the Richardson Wealth brand.


Richardson Wealth embraces fiduciary excellence

First wealth management firm in Canada to earn Centre for Fiduciary Excellence Certification for our Separately Managed and Portfolio Management Account platforms.

At Richardson Wealth, we aspire to achieve the highest standards of integrity, transparency and best practices in managing the wealth of our clients. There has never been a time in the financial industry where wealth management firms must work more diligently to earn clients’ trust. Countries such as Great Britain, Australia and the U.S. are proactively pursuing fiduciary standards of care. Richardson Wealth has taken a leadership position in Canada in this regard, and signaled to the industry its commitment in setting standards and best practices for the firm while providing clients with a true strategic partner and fiduciary.

 


 

What is a fiduciary

The word 'fiduciary' comes from the Latin word 'fiducia' meaning 'trust'. It refers to a person (or a business such as a bank or an Investment Advisory firm) who has the power and obligation to act for another under circumstances that require total trust, good faith and honesty.

Characteristically, the fiduciary has greater knowledge and expertise about the matters being handled. A fiduciary is held to the highest standards of conduct and trust. They must avoid self-dealing or situations in which the potential benefit to the fiduciary is in conflict with what is best for the person who placed trust in them.

 


Richardson Wealth – setting the standard for excellence

This esteemed annual certification program ensures that Richardson Wealth’s Portfolio Management Account platform for those advisors who have complete control over investment decisions for their clients and the firm’s Separately Managed Account platform conform to the global fiduciary standards of excellence. Richardson Wealth is the first Canadian firm to achieve designation for our Separately Managed and Portfolio Management Account platforms.

By undertaking a voluntary certification by the Centre for Fiduciary Excellence (CEFEX) as Richardson Wealth has done, and having an ongoing, independent, third-party, rigorous assessment process to audit our practices, clients can feel confident that the trust they are placing in our firm is warranted.
