We hire managers and build portfolios that work to meet your financial goals.
We recognize that fees, taxes, and other risks can significantly hinder your financial goals, so we apply the following features to every family profile:
Not only do we keep investment fees low, but most investors don't realize that the dealer takes, on average, between 50 and 70 percent of all the fees you pay.
We utilize Canada's lowest-cost, full-service dealer, and the savings we enjoy are passed on to our clients.
With tax rates in many provinces exceeding 50 percent, taxes on investment income are often the number one drag on your portfolio's performance.
We are highly tax aware. In fact, our managers have taught investment-related tax courses to accountants. Working with your accountant, or independently, we will devise an optimal strategy to minimize your tax obligations.
We will also work to identify other unforeseen risks that may affect you reaching your financial goals.
Whether it involves providing downside protection to your portfolio or identifying health related risks, by addressing and minimizing these risks ahead of time, we will ensure you meet your objectives.
By ensuring your fees, taxes and other risks are minimized, we ensure that you keep more of your savings so you can achieve your goals sometimes years sooner.

As a senior, I have come to trust and rely upon Guy Anderson's good judgement in making financial decisions. He has been a personable, professional, highly proficient and profitable advisor to me in money matters for many years. I especially appreciate Guy's collaborative approach in patiently taking the time to fully explain the benefits an pitfalls of each investment option before we make a decision. He's not just a "good Guy" when it comes to investing, he's a "great Guy."

We at the CMA were fortunate enough to have Guy and his partner present at a professional development seminar for members across southern Ontario. Their presentation covered unique and sophisticated tax planning opportunities and was delivered in an informative, entertaining and professional manner. The attendees and myself were thoroughly impressed. The presentation was of high calibre and was received extremely well by the CMA members. I would recommend their expertise as presenters, planners and professionals.
