When you have a great team, backed by solid knowledge and experience, good things happen.

It’s what resonates for White Leblanc Wealth Planners / HollisWealth clients, and now the team from right here in Nelson is receiving national recognition.

White Leblanc Wealth Planners / HollisWealth is a finalist for Top Independent Advisor Office (10 staff or fewer) in the fourth annual Wealth Professional Awards, the premier independent awards in Canada’s wealth management and financial advisory services industry.

“I’m really proud of what our team has accomplished – we have one of the best teams in the business – and I’m thrilled to have them recognized on the national stage,” says Colin White, Portfolio Manager, Holliswealth, and Partner, White Leblanc Wealth Planners.

The Nelson office is one of three White Leblanc Wealth Planners offices across Canada, providing financial advice to individuals and small businesses; all three share in the award nomination.

Founded in Halifax, with its roots in rural Nova Scotia, that small town feel remains evident in White LeBlanc’s client relationships. Its team-based approach, paired with the power of today’s technology, lets team members harness the knowledge and experience from both coasts, and remain connected with clients, each other and all that’s happening in the financial world.

“With investment information more readily available than ever before, client expectations are higher, however we are able to leverage these resources to provide the service and expertise they’re looking for,” White says.

“We have a fresh take on the investment advisory business.”

The best of the best

Winners in all 23 categories will be selected by a panel of industry experts and announced on May 31 during a stellar black-tie awards ceremony at The Liberty Grand Toronto.

“The finalists are the best of the best,” said Chris Davis, Event Director of Wealth Professional Awards. “They demonstrate the resilience, innovation and sheer management smarts it takes to build a thriving business today. Success stories like theirs are the lifeblood of the wealth management industry.”

For White, pointing to an industry that was once much more individualized, a big part of that success comes from embracing a team approach to financial planning.

“We are very proud of our team for all the hard work they do, and we’re very honoured to be recognized on the national stage by Wealth Professional.”
