How can we help you?

Investment Management

Our goal is to preserve and grow our clients’ wealth through a sound investment management philosophy and best practices. We are committed to a long-term investment approach using a diversified portfolio of holdings that spans asset classes and industry sectors and integrates sophisticated estate and tax planning strategies.

ESG & Impact Investing

As wealth managers, our primary objective is to design investment portfolios that meet each client’s goals, while mitigating undue risks. We manage risks in a portfolio primarily through asset allocation and fundamental analysis (research and forecasting of a company’s business model, sales, earnings, balance sheet) with an aim to uncover high quality businesses trading at reasonable valuations.

Trust Management

For generations, people of means have made the private trust the cornerstone of their wealth management strategy. They have used trusts as a means to distribute their wealth in accordance with their personal goals and family’s needs, protect and preserve their assets, ensure the well-being of their family and share their wealth to make this world a better place.

Estate & Tax Planning

Estate planning is an essential component of financial planning. It is a process that helps you manage and preserve your assets while you are alive, and protect, control and distribute these assets after your death, according to your wishes and in a tax-efficient manner. It is a personal, on-going process that evolves as you accumulate wealth and as your family grows and matures.
