Investment philosophy

Wealth management

Portfolio theory: I will structure your portfolio to generate income and minimize risk – in any market environment – using this unique, four-quadrant, hybrid philosophy:

  1. Growth Equities (prosper in expansionary markets): Value investments, energy income trusts, dividend-bearing stocks
  2. Cash (prospers in depressions): T-Bills, laddered GICs
  3. Precious Metals Funds (prosper in inflationary markets): Gold bullion, silver and other precious metals funds
  4. Long-term Bonds (prosper in recessions): Corporate bonds and preferred shares

Estate planning: This is an important process for anyone with a significant asset base and it requires a tax-effective strategy to avoid financial burdens to loved ones.

Retirement planning: Accumulate and safeguard an asset base that will generate an income to sustain your lifestyle and weather ever-changing economic climates.

Insurance: A vital part of estate planning. I can ensure that your insurance needs are met efficiently and economically to support you and your family in the event of loss of income, disability, illness or death.
