Colin Herrick

Assante Financial Management Ltd.
BA, FMA, CFP®, RIS – Senior Wealth Advisor


Colin has over 15 years of experience in the Financial Industry and is committed to helping clients achieve their goals and plan for their future.

Prior to working as a Wealth Advisor at Assante, Colin was a Trust Officer at a major trust company in Vancouver and before that worked for a large Canadian mutual fund company. Growing up in the Lower Mainland, he obtained his BA from the University of British Columbia and also holds the FMA and CFP designations. Colin has taken a great interest in Socially Responsible and Sustainable investing and holds the Responsible Investment Specialist designation through the Responsible Investment Association (RIA).

Colin uses this knowledge and experience to make sure that no part of his clients’ financial plan is missed, and this comprehensive attention to detail leads to successful results. Early on in his career, he realized that the key to truly making a difference and successfully guiding clients throughout their financial lives is by listening and making sure the client is heard and their specific goals are the end objective of everything we do. And it is making a difference and seeing clients achieve their goals that he finds so rewarding about what he does.

Really, it’s all about the plan when it comes to taking care of clients and Colin and his team use a robust and personalized process to learn all aspects and goals of a client’s situation in order to determine the investment strategy that makes the most sense for them. The team specializes in helping clients through the various transitions in life such as retirement, business sale, inheritance, downsizing a home and wealth accumulation to name a few. We look to build long term relationships to ensure we are there to help guide clients though all of these transitions.
