Thinking about changing trustees?


Are you questioning the service you and your trust account are receiving?

In a time of constant mergers, are you looking for a responsible company to provide trust services for you and your family?

Instead of speaking with the “trust officer of the day” at the local bank, by working with  RBC Wealth Management you may benefit from our team approach that includes collaborating with a personal financial advisor and a dedicated trust officer.

Our approach has always been to put our clients first. Our parent company, Royal Bank of Canada has an international reputation for integrity and fiscal security- serving trust needs for financially successful families since 1914.

Most folks become dissatisfied with their trustee due to:

  • The trust’s investments are not performing competitively.
  • The trustee or trust officer is unresponsive, slow or provides inadequate information.
  • Service levels of your trustee have deteriorated due to recent industry consolidation or staff turnover.
  • The trustee is not a professional trust company.  They may be an individual you do not know or get along with.
  • Their fees are not competitive and erode your income distributions.

My commitment to you

With over 28 years of experience as a financial advisor, I remain passionate about helping clients achieve their financial goals. I take the extra time and ask the in depth questions to identify those goals and create a plan to achieve them. Understanding that client’s goals evolve at each stage of their lives, I strive to ensure that their assets are deployed appropriately to meet their current needs while preparing for the next stage as well. At RBC Wealth Management I work closely with a team of professionals to orchestrate all elements of the wealth planning process, customized for each client.

Investment philosophy

We are all adjusting to the “new normal” economic environment. Investment opportunities arise when there are significant changes in the fundamental trends of the economic landscape. I believe that “value” is what the next person is willing to pay. My investment philosophy centers on identifying current and potential future trends of an asset class, sector or economy and investing accordingly to protect against or take advantage of that trend. I specialize in tactical investing through fee-based professional portfolio managers.
