The wisdom and knowledge that come together in a seasoned Advisor are invaluable to clients. Since 1996, Sharon Rizzuto, Financial Advisor, enhances and manages the complexities in the financial lives of individuals, businesses, charities and families who are prepared to make a commitment to improving their financial wealth.
Equipped with the sincerity to listen and help, with honesty and integrity, Sharon holds herself to a higher level of service and caring which is reflected in her “Do More, Know More and Care More” mantra.
“I seek clients not customers. I see myself becoming an integral part of their life’s journey, providing them with financial counselling for wealth creation and accumulation throughout their lives. A high level of integrity, knowledge and compassion and always putting my clients interests first creates that trusting relationship which all humans seek and I strive to personify.”

Her education coupled with years of industry and life experience in the area of divorce, parental illness care giving, estate executorships’ and director of a family business corporation through to its wind up, have provided Sharon with experiential wisdom that enhances the understanding of her clients’ often complex situations.
“I make sure I am available to give council on my client’s urgent life situations as they arise as well as continually monitoring our progress over time.
I treat clients as I would expect to be treated. I respect each person’s ability to make decisions and therefore provide choices and advise appropriate to each individual’s needs and wants. I provide supportive information and respect your decision to choose.”
