Rockhurst University provides educational setting as Delaware-based Nicholson shares firm story in interview with PBS MoneyTrack show host Pam Krueger.
WILMINGTON, Del., November 15, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Donald W. Nicholson, Sr., founder of Donald W.

This privately-hosted event was open to a select group of tenured financial planning professionals. Nicholson was hand-selected by the conference hosts.

Krueger asked Nicholson about his independent wealth management firm, the types of clients they serve, and how working with a truly knowledgeable, independent advisor can make a difference. Nicholson is adamant that the entire engagement process should be about stewardship, not sales. He tries to put individuals and couples at ease by treating them as if they are next-door neighbors, in an effort to make them “more relaxed when it is time for me to give them the information and advice they need,” Nicholson said. As a third-generation businessman, Nicholson says he enjoys the client exploration and discovery process best. He has a large team to do additional research and implement the formal financial plan.
