Meet our team

Good, sounds advice makes a difference. 

Douglas Goodman and Philip Richmond have been friends for over thirty-five years and business partners for almost twenty. They bring a unique combination of education, experience, and perspective to provide the best wealth and investment disciplines to our successful and loyal clients. Richmond | Goodman Wealth Management advises our clients about their wealth differently than what you have experienced before. First and foremost we function as a team.

A team operates differently than a single advisor. Better ideas are forged through careful and constructive analysis from multiple viewpoints. We constantly remind ourselves of past experiences which contrasts human natures’ habit of repeating prior mistakes. Our disciplines are well thought out, executed and improved by the team as a whole. Furthermore, our client service never goes on holiday.

We joined Richardson Wealth Limited - Canada’s leading independent wealth management firm - as Partners and Directors in 2005. The Richmond | Goodman Wealth Management team has advanced and refined wealth and investment disciplines into a truly unique approach. We invite you to experience the opportunity we offer by exploring our website, visiting our blog or contacting us directly to learn more.
