Scott & Cynthia’s story

Empty-nesters and retirees, RBC Wealth Management clients


“The investment world is so in-depth. Unless you’re on top of it, you’d better let the professionals manage it. And it gives us comfort that they take care of it.”

“I still never want to say to somebody that I’m retired.” This sentiment from Cynthia Walker, shareholder of a successful family business, is common to many retirees who are busier than ever with no plans of slowing down. As clients of RBC Wealth Management, Cynthia and her husband Scott have worked closely with investment advisor Rhonda Hymers of RBC Dominion Securities Inc. in Kelowna, B.C., to define their retirement goals and make them a reality. Today they are empty-nesters with a passion for the outdoors, recreational horse riding and spending time with family. “I don’t consider it retired,” says Scott, “it’s just the next stage of my life.” See how the Walkers are redefining retirement on their own terms.
