Calvin Richardson CIMA®

What do you like about being a member of the Institute?

As a member of the Investments and Wealth Institute, you can leverage outstanding networking opportunities, connecting with peers in the finance and wealth management sector. The institute's dedication to academic excellence offers access to cutting-edge resources, fostering continuous learning and development. Moreover, being affiliated with such a prestigious organization enhances industry recognition, highlighting your commitment to professional growth and ethical standards.

What is the best financial advice you have received or given?

Start investing early and take advantage of market dislocations. Starting early allows you to harness the power of compounding and give your investments more time to grow. Additionally, oftentimes market draw-downs represent the best buying opportunities due to investor psychology and the market’s inevitable tendency to over-react and over-correct.
