What We Do
WHAT WE DO
The graphic on the left is an illustration of the typical Investment Life Cycle for most people. No matter what stage of your life you are in we can help you to define your goals and implement a plan to achieve them. When there are bumps in the road, as their will be, we can help get you back on track. As a full-service investment dealer, we offer access to a complete range of investment products for any type of registered or non-registered investment account, however, my primary role is to provide my clients with objective, well-researched information and wise counsel on their investments. There are two main types of account management that we offer, outlined in brief detail below.
Discretionary Account Management – minimum $200,000 in Investable assets
This enhanced service starts by working with you to determine your Investment Profile, we will discuss, in detail, your investment goals, time horizon, risk profile, tax and family considerations. A portfolio is then tailored for you and an Investment Policy Statement is created. The advantage of a discretionary service is that it allows us to make the necessary decisions involved in the day-to-day management of your entire portfolio without having to confirm each transaction with you. We do this through strict adherence to your Investment Policy Statement and your stated goals, restraints and objectives. Your Portfolio is managed on a daily basis and could include equities, fixed income investments, ETF’s, mutual funds or various alternative investments depending on your needs.
The client most suited to this service would be someone looking for Professional Portfolio Management, while still receiving personalized service. You would be free from making the day-to-day decisions with respect to your investments, which allows you to spend more time doing what you do best. At a minimum you would receive detailed quarterly reports and annual face to face meetings to analyze the performance and monitor the progress towards your goals. Investment counselling fees are charged as a percentage of assets under administration.
Non-Discretionary Account Management – any account size
Starting with an analysis of your objectives and goals we recommend a comprehensive portfolio for you. This account is suitable for those who have not reached a size suitable for the Discretionary Account Service or for those clients who wish to enjoy a greater degree of participation in the management of their investments. With a non-discretionary investment account we contact clients to advise and discuss investment matters. No transactions are carried out without the client’s approval. Commission is charged on a per trade basis.
We have helped numerous start-up and later-stage companies with initial and mezzanine financing. These opportunities are made available to all our client’s with the appropriate risk profile
