Bio: Linda Murphy

With over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry and three advanced industry certifications (see below), I believe education and experience are important when considering a financial advisor. But, an additional critical factor to consider is the ability for you to have a normal conversation with your advisor without the use of industry jargon. You want someone who can communicate in a way you understand. I am that person!

Convenience. Opportunity. Peace-of-Mind.

Worried about working with a financial professional? Don’t be. The best financial professionals are all about helping you. Helping you make good choices. Helping you overcome challenges. Helping you live the life you want with as little stress as possible.

Where to start

The RICP® designation was very important to me, as a full service advisor, I had neglected retirement planning in my studies. It was a unique program focusing on retirement income, legacy and being proactive in teaching your clients to avoid the common pitfalls in retirement planning.
