Our Investment Management Principles
My investment philosophy is to gain exposure to moderate growth while still focusing on capital preservation.  This is accomplished by having a clear sell discipline, buying high quality names that have consistent and increasing dividends, and by holding asset classes that are properly correlated to the market. 
 
In addition we:
 
  • Constantly update our forecasts regarding the global economy.
  • Use an investment discipline with a proven track record and the assistance of our RBC Investment Strategy Committee.
  • Ensure your portfolio owns companies and/or fixed income that meets high standards.
  • Use a strict buy and sell discipline to mitigate risk and take advantage of opportunities.
  • Bring a business-like approach to managing your wealth.
 
Our Investment Management Strategies
We offer the following types of Investment Management Options: Private Investment Management, or Advisory Management in order to customize your portfolio to your specific needs and preferences.
 

 
Private Investment Management
This is the premium level of investment service, freeing you from the day-to-day details of managing your wealth. Because your approval is not required for every transaction, we are able to take advantage of investment opportunities quickly and efficiently.

Available exclusively for portfolios exceeding $200,000, Private Investment Management gives you the confidence to pursue your goals, knowing your wealth will be managed according to the highest standards.
 
You will receive a customized investment portfolio that reflects your investment needs throughout the various stages of your life.  I will work within your specific guidelines established by your personalized Investment Policy Statement (IPS) which we regularly review with you and adjust according to your needs. We also work with our RBC independent risk management group to review your portfolio, on a quarterly basis, to ensure it meets the high standards set out in your Investment Policy Statement.
