Private Investment Management (PIM)




One of the biggest challenges facing investors is the natural, yet counter-productive, emotional response to the inevitable ups and downs of the stock markets. Horsburgh Belton Wealth Management of RBC Dominion Securities takes a disciplined, systematic approach that avoids this type of emotional investing.

Private Investment Management is our premium level of discretionary wealth management. It is designed to free you from the day-to-day details of managing your wealth, so you can pursue your own personal and professional goals. Horsburgh Belton Wealth Management of RBC Dominion Securities offers you a completely customized portfolio built from the ground up based on factors such as your growth requirements, income needs and risk tolerance.

While we provide our clients with a range of investment options, only a select group of advisors are able to offer portfolio management services through Private Investment Management. We are rules based investors, hunches and tips are not part of our process. We subscribe to and personally pay for independent research sources to assist us in our investment making process.

As discretionary Portfolio Managers, we can take advantage of investment opportunities quickly and efficiently because your approval is not required for every single transaction. A careful process involving strict guidelines, checks and balances, and formal reviews ensures that your portfolio is managed with the highest standards of ethics and professionalism.
