Women and Wealth

The future of wealth is female

Women are driving industry-wide change and we are at the forefront of that change.

Richardson Wealth is home to remarkably talented women across the company, from entry level to our most experienced professionals. Yet, women advisors are underrepresented in our firm and more broadly in our industry. Attracting and elevating women is a growth priority.

We have a bold vision for a strong, powerful and diverse company that will capture the attention of more women advisors and their clients – those who want to be publicly associated with a firm that represents inclusivity, one that is preparing for the future of wealth and one that is publicly recognized for being a Great Place to Work™ for Women.

We are dedicated to defining the meaning of diversity in the workplace and proudly changing the game.

“With so many powerful women in leadership roles at our firm, and an inclusive culture focused on mentoring and succession, it is not surprising we are attracting the industry’s top female talent.”

Natalie Bisset, Corporate Development

“I sit here as a woman and as a minority, so others can see themselves and recognize that there is power in our differences. Together we can achieve tremendous outcomes.”

Sascha Isaacs, Wealth Strategist Private Family Office

Women of Courage Award

In 2021, Richardson Wealth joined forces with the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) by sponsoring the 2022 and 2023 Women of Courage Award. This award is presented to extraordinary women who champion our country and its values across a diverse range of causes, with courage and compassion, even if it means risking their careers, reputations and, sometimes, their lives.

This partnership is reflective of our values that began with Muriel Sprague, an exceptional woman of courage. Muriel, known as the “shy baroness of Brokerage,” became the fifth President of James Richardson & Sons, Limited in 1939 and demonstrated remarkable bravery during times of adversity and difficulty. She as the first woman to head a large corporation and the first woman ever to be inducted into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame. Her legacy continues to inspire us to advocate fiercely for the advancement of women.
