Analytical and Strategic Investment Advisory Process


Our investment advisory process is both analytical and strategic — whether for the business owner, a professional or executive, or an individual or family investor — is driven by carefully considered objectives.

Our investment advisory process encompasses eight (8) steps leading to a comprehensive wealth management strategy for every client we advise:

  1. Discovery: We develop an understanding of your goals, personal and financial.

  2. Financial Planning: We prepare an analysis of your total financial situation.

  3. Will & Estate Review: We help you address your estate planning concerns and goals.

  4. Insurance Analysis: We help you protect what you have worked hard to build.

  5. Investment Policy Statement (IPS): This is the blueprint for your investment strategy.

  6. Investment Proposal: This is your recommended investment plan, approved by you.

  7. Ongoing Services: We track portfolio performance and give you timely updates.

  8. Regular Reviews: As your needs and markets evolve, we adjust your plan accordingly.

We review your portfolio performance with you regularly to discuss appropriate changes necessary to keep you on track. As part of that process you will receive detailed account statements, portfolio review statements, transaction updates, and tax reports.

We conduct an exhaustive and rigorous annual review of your financial plan to ensure that it is meeting your immediate, mid-range and long-term expectations and needs.

We are available for clients meetings at your home or office, at our office, or at a Royal Bank of Canada branch close to you.
