Recipient, Nova Scotia Nature Trust, Nature Conservation Award 2005

Richard Nickerson and Michael Nuschke. Each year at the Nature Trust Dinner, a Conservation Award is presented to a person or group who has done outstanding work for private land conservation in Nova Scotia. The Nature Trust was pleased to present the 2005 Conservation Award to Michael Nuschke and Richard Nickerson of Assante.

Both Michael and Richard are financial planners and investment advisors with a sub-specialty in Socially Responsible Investing (SRI). "We decided to support the Nature Trust given it is very congruous with our SRI business, says Nuschke. "We have given by way of time and energy, personal financial contributions, introducing the Nature Trust to our clientele, and magnetizing corporate financial support through our supplier companies"."This is our way of giving back to the community and though this focus, we believe we have been able to make a real contribution to the extraordinary important aims of the Nature Trust" he adds.

Michael remains an active member of the Nature Trust, a director on the Board and part of the planned gifts team. No stranger to the Nature Trust, Richard is a past board member and volunteer.

Assante wealth management has also been a major supporter of our annual dinner for the last 8 years.
