Women & Wealth Educational Webinar and Action Guide
Darcie Crowe, Sr. Investment Advisor & Portfolio Manager with Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management, has launched a free online program for women to provide education and understanding around the unique challenges women face in achieving financial security.
While 90% of women will be solely responsible for their finances at some point in their lives, a majority of women lack financial confidence and are underprepared to manage their wealth throughout life transitions.
Taking time away from the workforce to care for children or an elderly parent, a longer life expectancy, losses following divorce, a lower risk tolerance and the gender pay gap are just some of the contributing factors that have even the most successful women concerned about establishing a clear path for their retirement. The combination of these factors creates unique financial planning requirements for women to accumulate, preserve and protect assets for their lifetime and generations to come.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, business professional, a retired widow, a single parent or working through a life transition, Darcie’s Women & Wealth platform will provide you the education and financial confidence required to plan for the life of your dreams, free from financial concern.

A few years ago, I met Dr. Andrea Stevens, an Ottawa-based dentist, working mother, and like-minded entrepreneur who shared my passion for creating connections and putting down roots in her community. 

That initiative – The Ottawa Makeover Project – is now in its third year. As we begin the journey with Cathy, our third participant, I am inspired and humbled by the evolution I have witnessed as an establishing partner in the Project. Read more

What goes around, comes around are the words Kim Pickett lives by.  While Kim attended Sheridan College she had strong female mentors in her Graphic Design program.  Now she is returning the favour and is mentoring our next generation of up and coming graphic designers. 

Kim was recently profiled by Sheridan College for her accomplishments having arrived on the west coast with a big dream to own her own graphic design firm. She’s thrilled to be recognized by her alma mater and to share some of her hard-won lessons learned. 

Find out how Kim turned risk into reward.

Ciccarelli Advisory Services, Inc. is pleased to announce our participation in “Turtles on the Town,” a Naples, Florida community arts project featuring 50 loggerhead sea turtle sculptures. These turtles will take up residence at various locations throughout Collier County, including one sculpture at our Florida office, beginning in November 2015 and continuing through February 2016. Local artists have lent their talents in making these sculptures come to life with ocean-based themes.

We’d like to introduce you to our turtle, whom we’ve affectionately named, Tiffany.  Her theme is “Under the Sea” and was commissioned to be completed by artist Nancy Job.  Read more
