Honour the Past & Support the Future: Your Legacy

Mar 18, 2021


Your legacy can ensure brighter futures for children and improvements in child health care. That’s the power of a Legacy Gift. What a wonderful way to be remembered! This year marks the 50th anniversary for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. As we recognize the past 50 years, we encourage you to consider a gift in your will that could help sick kids for the next 50 years.

We want to help you make the most of your resources as you support the future. Please join us for a free virtual financial planning event.

Adam Bighill, Winnipeg Blue Bomber, Financial Advisor, and parent of a Children’s Hospital patient

Adam started his career in the Financial Industry in 2019 and has immediately made an impact on helping families and businesses manage their wealth. He believes that every client has unique needs and that there is no cookie cutter solution. With that in mind, Adam focuses on building a relationship centered around holistic wealth planning and preservation.

Adam is very proud of his process in which he shows the value he creates for clients. All new ventures start with trust, and he builds trust through educating his clients. He understands you’ve worked hard for what you have, and it means everything to him to show you how hard he will work for you.

Adam quite happily provides complimentary portfolio reviews for prospective clients so that they can have a second opinion. Adam and his team have expertise in financial planning, insurance, estate planning, as well as ultra high net worth solutions.
