Richardson GMP

To our clients:

Welcome to the November edition of our newsletter. This month we have a mix of personal and poignant. For our clients who have worked with Jason Leemans, Jason has written an update on life since he stepped back from the business, entitled “Where has the Time Gone?” I’ve included a poem by my wife’s Great Uncle Syd that has always brought home the meaning of Remembrance Day to our family. And of course we have some market-related insights and a quick checklist on health, a topic I know we all care about!

Also, our newsletter is now in a new electronic format... we hope you like it!

All the best,

Dwight, Tyler, Neil, Paul, Brenda, Jessica, & Wendy

Here it is again, lest we forget.
