2021 Finance Awards Honoree: Eric S. Glasband

Eric S. Glasband feels there is nothing better than the satisfaction of building long-term relationships with clients and helping them achieve their financial goals through customized investment strategies and personalized service. He recognizes that no two families are alike, so he takes time to understand what your unique aspirations are—and how to help you accomplish them for now and generations to come.

Outside of the office, Eric is dedicated to helping people in his Palm Beach County community. He sits on the Florida Atlantic University Medical School Board and enjoys mentoring students as they prepare to enter the community with a medical degree. Eric is also passionate about supporting other local organizations, with an emphasis on health-based causes.

His family is very involved with Heart of the Game, Inc., a nonprofit that helps save lives by providing free external defibrillators to student athletes and others who experience sudden cardiac arrest during sporting events at public athletic locations.

Before joining RBC Wealth Management in 2020, Eric worked at Merrill Lynch from 2010 to 2020, after a decade of experience at other investment firms. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona. Eric and his wife, Lisa, live in Palm Beach Gardens with their son, Ethan. Eric and Ethan enjoy golfing.

Favorite Quote: “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life” – Mark Twain

Fun Fact: I represented the U.S., winning a gold medal in the Pan American Maccabi Games in Buenos Aires.

What challenges have you faced in your career, and how did you overcome them? Adversity, defeat and rejection – I overcame these by working hard and became a lifelong student of markets. I also learned to surround myself with the right people and assembled my team to complement my weaknesses.

What has been the most monumental moment of your career thus far? Watching my clients achieve the goals based on detailed plans we mapped out of them.

What’s the one piece of financial advice you regret not taking? Not investing a portion of my savings from my high school job as advised by my father. Compounding interest can be a valuable tool in any financial plan.

What’s the biggest financial mistake most people make? Going about their day-to-day lives without having a detailed plan to achieve their life’s goals.

How do you get first-time investors to alter their thinking on investing? I take them through client success stories and work with them to develop comprehensive financial plans. It is very powerful when you show them they can achieve their vision by taking measured steps over time.
