Key Benefits of Private Investment Management

Discretionary Portfolio Management

With Private Investment Management, you get a completely customized portfolio designed by Terry Cheaney, your portfolio manager. Your portfolio is 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, your Portfolio Manager is able to take advantage of investment opportunities quickly and efficiently. He must also work within specific guidelines established in advance and is accountable to these guidelines, which are regularly reviewed and adjusted according to your needs.

The Highest Credentials at Your Service

Only a select group of investment advisors can offer you portfolio management services through Private Investment Management.

Portfolio managers must possess advanced investment credentials, extensive experience advising clients and substantial assets under administration.

Direct Access to Your Portfolio Manager

Unlike most money management programs where you never meet your portfolio manager, Private Investment Management offers you the unique opportunity to sit down with Terry, your portfolio manager, and discuss your needs one-on-one.

Because you have a personal relationship with your portfolio manager, your portfolio can more accurately reflect your individual goals and objectives on an ongoing basis.

Our Meticulous Six-Step Process

To ensure that we always act in your best interests, we follow a meticulous six-step process. This process balances your desire for freedom with your expectation for excellence:

  1. Creating your investment policy statement: We will work with you to develop an investment policy statement, a written document that takes into account your unique needs, investing time horizon, tolerance for risk and more.

  2. Building your portfolio: Based on your ideal asset-allocation model, we will select an appropriate combination of investments for your portfolio. Virtually every type of investment is available to meet your needs.

    In selecting appropriate investments, we combine an understanding of overall global economic and market trends with fundamental research of individual investment opportunities. Senior economists, portfolio strategists and research analysts from various parts of RBC augment your portfolio manager's insights in these key areas.

  3. Managing your portfolio: We will make day-to-day investment decisions on your behalf to respond to and anticipate the changing market and economic landscape. For example, if the outlook for a certain region of the world improves, your portfolio will be adjusted accordingly within the guidelines established in your investment policy statement.

  4. Third-party review and monitoring: An independent risk management group reviews your portfolio on a quarterly basis to ensure it meets the high standards set out in your Investment Policy Statement.

  5. Adjusting your investment strategy: We will also meet with you on a regular basis to review your portfolio and get an update on your personal and financial situation.

  6. Keeping you informed of your progress: You will receive a monthly account statement that details the activity in your portfolio and provides the current market value of all your positions. In addition, you can receive a quarterly rate-of-return calculation. You also have access to your accounts and timely market information through our online services.

"After an exhaustive search for competent financial investment guidance and direction we were fortunate enough to find this fine team. Our experience has been nothing short of transformative, Terry and his able team have positioned us for both now and the future.”
