Chief Wealth Advisory Officer Coventry Edwards-Pitt, CFA, CFP®, author of Author of the Healthy, Wealthy & Wise collection, spoke at the Rhode Island Foundation on May 10th about what people can do to ensure that they make the most out of their elder years. At the Foundation, Covie shared insights she learned while writing her book, Aged Healthy, Wealthy, & Wise, and told stories of vibrant elders on what steps they took to make sure that the legacy they leave behind for their loved ones is positive.

“For us in that room, there may have been an epiphany of sorts – that philanthropy always offers an important bridge to learning more about a client’s values – values that tap into the deepest emotions surrounding living, dying, and what we leave behind.” – Jim Sanzi, “Designing a life that allows you to age well”
