INVEST IN MARKETS. BUILD WEALTH.
WIN AT LIFE
Our clients are the key. No matter your level of investment sophistication, your involvement is vital for the success of your investment goals. Providing solutions to your questions and concerns is always of utmost importance to us. We really believe there are no ridiculous questions to ask, no matter how "basic" you may think it is.
Another crucial element to winning your investment goals is regular and open communications. We construct a regular schedule of contact with all of our clients. It's systematic so you are never left guessing about when you will hear from us again.
INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO CONSTRUCTION
In constructing an investment portfolio, we use a blend of methods, with our first emphasis to identify our client’s primary investment objective for their portfolio and their unique capacity for the associated risk. Depending on each client’s unique circumstances, these guide us in assessing which income and/or growth opportunities are optimal for their particular investment portfolio.
Income generating investments may consist of earning interest through GICs and bonds, dividends from stocks or by way of alternative ideas, such as private lending or real estate. This is our “rental property” approach to generating regular income for our investors. Boring as it may be, it’s the solid process which grows portfolios as the proverbial paint dries.
Growth opportunities means investments which generate capital gain returns. It’s akin to selling the “rental property” once it appreciates significantly in value. More exciting? Yes. But with more possibilities comes more uncertainty too. There’s no watching grass grow idly here.

TYPICAL INVESTMENT CLIENTS
Our clients are primarily mass affluent Canadian entrepreneurial and professional families, small business owners and local charitable foundations, all looking to grow and protect their wealth.
While unlike most investment managers we do not have a hard "investment minimum", our investment portfolios are most suitable and efficient for accounts of at least $25,000. Even so, we prefer to focus more on qualitative than quantitative factors in working with clients, looking more for the right mindset and life goals over the size of a portfolio. So, don't let mere numbers deter from reaching out to us.
