Planner Pulse 042: Reuben Zelwer — Remembering Lawrence Shamrakov
On 20 January 2016, Lawrence Shamrakov, a young financial adviser, lost his life in an accident while cycling to work on a busy road just outside of Melbourne. He was just 25 and left behind his wife, his future first daughter, family, friends, and his business partner at Adapt Wealth Management — Reuben Zelwer.
Reuben contacted me, and asked if he could share some thoughts about Lawrence in a podcast episode.
In this episode, Reuben reflects on what it was like working with Lawrence, shares how they came to work together, and what we can learn from a young adviser with an attitude to work and life that earned him a great deal of respect from his peers.
