At Haywood, we continually strive to enhance our practice of providing clients with ideas and investments that are well-founded and profitable. Our greatest strength lies in our skilled and dedicated employees who are supported by a work environment that promotes creativity and performance.

Our History

Haywood was established in 1981 as an independent retail brokerage to primarily serve the Vancouver regional market. The company grew rapidly and in 1986 joined the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). A decade later in 1996, Haywood (USA) Securities Inc. was created and joined FINRA and SIPC. The years that followed found Haywood expanding into new territory with the addition of Correspondent Services in 1997, and a new branch opening in Toronto in 1999 which led to Haywood becoming a full-service national firm. Haywood broke new ground in 1999 with the addition of key Institutional Advisors who were brought over from First Marathon Securities to lead the development of the Institutional Division.

In 2000 Haywood opened its 3rd branch located in Calgary. In 2010, Haywood purchased Bolder Investment Partners, resulting in a further strengthened and diversified retail sales force with 15 new Investment Advisors joining its ranks. In 2013, Haywood expanded and strengthened its Energy Team and implemented cost reduction measures which served to maintain strength despite the challenging market conditions. In 2014, to further strengthen its business during difficult market conditions, Haywood undertook steps to diversify from its resource based business, by adding highly-skilled professionals to cover the technology, special sits and healthcare sectors.

Currently Haywood serves as the clearing house for 4 other Canadian dealers and has total assets under administration in excess of C$12 billion.

It is a history we are proud of and one we very much look forward to building on in what promises to be an exciting future for our clients.
