Calgary-based Stephen Ross joins the list of the industry's top financial advisors
By: Wealth Professional
Ross & Hudson Advisory Group's Stephen Ross has been included in Wealth Professional Canada magazine's annual Top 50 Advisors report, spotlighting 50 of the best advisors working in the Canadian wealth management industry today.
Competitive to the core, Ross got into the financial industry by beating out a field of almost 50 applicants for a job at Richardson Greenshields in 1982. That drive has resulted in consistent AUM growth for the Calgary advisor, who hit $275 million last year. Competition doesn't get in the way of individual client service, though. For all he's accomplished, Ross says his proudest moments are when he sees his clients' brows unfurrow because they realize that he's got their backs. Ross' competitive streak isn't limited to the professional world – he also owns a formula racing team and travels the world participating in motorsports.
"In total, this year's Top 50 Advisors are managing more than $16 billion worth of assets, improving on last year's total by close to $6 billion," says the Wealth Professional team. "Once again, this year's list contains advisors from across the country, representing seven different provinces; British Columbia narrowly surpassed Ontario for the first time this year with the most advisors on the list (17 versus 15). The years of experience amassed by this year's Top 50 Advisors ranges from five to 37, highlighting both the current strength and the bright future of wealth management in Canada."
