Our approach

The Omstead Snoei Wealth Management Group of RBC Dominion Securities take an uncomplicated but time proven 4 step approach.

Step One – Discovery/Fit

Our discovery process allows us to learn about each other. We can gain a deeper understanding of your individual financial circumstances, needs, and goals, while giving you an opportunity to learn about who we are and what we do for our clients. The most important step in terms of developing long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships is through identifying if there is a ‘fit’.

Step Two – Strategic Analysis

With a thorough understanding of your financial circumstances, personal goals and profile as an investor, we are able to identify your personalized investment strategy – the guiding principles for how your investments will be managed.

Step Three – Building your portfolio

We determine an appropriate mix between stocks, bonds, and cash for your customized portfolio, working together with our firm’s investment strategists and research analysts.

Step Four – Continuous Monitoring & Service

We will monitor your portfolio and, from time to time, recommend changes to reflect current market conditions. We continually review your portfolio with you on a regular basis to ensure it continues to meet your needs.

Guidance for Each Stage of Your Life

Your situation changes, financial markets change and the factors that determine investment success can also change. Your wealth management strategy needs the flexibility to anticipate and respond to these changes. That's why we are committed to guiding you through each stage of your life to help you meet your objectives:

Stage 1: Accumulating wealth (Growing assets)

We develop strategies to achieve your key financial objectives, including planning for retirement, funding a child's education or preparing for a major purchase.

Stage 2: Protecting wealth (Maintaining assets)

We help you manage risk to protect your financial well-being, maintain your independence, enhance your lifestyle and preserve family harmony.
