A rich 165-year history
Our history is what makes us unique. The Richardson family business has been a cornerstone of commerce in this country for 164 years, including a rich, 90-year history in financial services. Our legacy of entrepreneurial spirit, vision, long-term stability, and commitment are powerful draws for advisors and their clients.
Not so long ago, every investment firm in Canada was branded with the last name of the founder(s) or major shareholder(s): Wood Gundy, Nesbitt Burns, Macleod Young Weir – not to mention Richardson Greenshields.
These were some of the big players for most of the 20th century. The founders were pillars of the community. Their names were a powerful draw for wealthy families and advisors alike.
As the century turned, these founders and these firms were all gone. Their brands slowly disappeared in favor of corporate names: CIBC, BMO, Scotia, and RBC. With the loss of these brands, gone also was the connection with the founders, the partners, and the independent boutique culture.
Richardson Wealth extracts the best from our storied corporate past, when the name on the door meant something, and represents a forward-thinking approach to wealth planning. We are honoured to serve as our client’s trusted financial advisor and to work diligently to ensure your family’s long-term financial success.
