Getting involved in the financial services industry at a young age means you can get years of experience behind you and rise to the top of your game before the age of 40.
That’s the reality for several advisors in The Globe and Mail and SHOOK Research’s second annual Canada’s Top Wealth Advisors rankings.
Knowing the business from the ground up has given Alexandra Horwood, investment advisor and portfolio manager with Alexandra Horwood & Partners at Richardson Wealth Ltd. in Toronto, a unique perspective and allowed her the empathy to know just how long it takes to complete several tasks, from client paperwork to setting up meetings. She says it helps with how she interacts with her colleagues and clients.
“There’s no room for ego in this business,” she says. “It’s important to have realistic expectations of your team and I know what it takes to get the job done.”\
