Who We Are
An integrated financial services provider who combines the efficiencies of a robo-advisor with the service offering of a high-end wealth management firm.
What We Offer
A superior, low-cost alternative to the banks and brokers through integrated wealth management services.
How We Do It
We've built in-house systems which streamline and automate wealth management services and financially aligns us with our clients.
The Problem With Traditional Financial Services
Banks and brokers charge excessive fees that are often embedded into the products they sell.
If you've ever met a broker or walked into a bank, you've likely experienced a high pressure financial sales pitch. Investments and insurance are often pushed hardest since they have high embedded fees and pay lucrative commissions. In fact, a 2007 Harvard study showed Canadians pay the highest mutual fund fees in the developed world at 2.2%. These fees detract from investment performance and over 30 years, with an annualized return of 7%, will eat up more than half of your gains!
Meanwhile, Wealth Management firms offer integrated investment management, financial planning, tax optimization and estate planning services, all for less than half the fees on mutual funds. Unfortunately, this service is typically only offered to the richest 1% as it requires manual reviews by experienced portfolio managers, lawyers, accountants and financial planners.
We are, quite simply, better and more affordable.
We've built our company from the ground up, with the latest technologies in order to optimize and automate wealth management services so they can be provided to the middle class at a reasonable cost. We are not salespeople, we are a registered portfolio manager which means we have a fiduciary duty to act in our clients' best interest. We do not receive commission, our only compensation is based off assets under management which is why we only offer services proven to increase long-term returns and reduce risk on an after-tax and after-fee basis, including:
