Welcome


"To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric I.Q., unusual business insight, or inside information. What is needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework." - Warren Buffett

In helping my clients manage their wealth, I take a personal approach to ensure that the strategies and recommendations are the right choice for each individual situation. We pay close attention to each of our clients objectives & guidelines and, for our discretionary clients, develop a detailed Investment Policy Statement.

The focus of my practice is to help a smaller number of families to ensure that the focus remains on managing client portfolios and keeping in touch with clients on a regular basis - I currently manage portfolios for around 100 families.

My philosophy has been shaped over the past 20 years.  I seek first to preserve capital and then grow portfolios responsibly by investing in sound companies with a history of solid dividend payments.

I continue to believe that the money management business is about trust, integrity and personalized service.  With Private Investment Management, you get a completely customized portfolio designed and built from the ground up based on factors such as growth requirements, income needs and risk tolerance.  Because your approval is not required for every single transaction, we are able to take advantage of investment opportunities in a timely and efficient manner.  I work within specific guidelines established in advance with you and I am accountable to these guidelines, which are regularly reviewed and adjusted according to your needs.

In taking a holistic wealth management approach, I incorporate and optimize tax preferred investing with the use of Tax Free Savings Accounts and tax deferred plans, as well as, the use of tax preferred income such as preferred shares & high dividend paying common equities.
