We invest our client’s money using a Core and Explore approach. Passive ETFs as the core, and mutual funds/alternative products as the explore. When we build our client’s investment portfolios we use a combination of ETFs, Mutual Funds and Segragated Funds / Alternative product. Fees are one of the biggest determinants of investment performance outcomes over time, so we aim to keep investing fees low and to a minimum.
Our goal is to hit singles and doubles. We aim to keep our clients fully invested at all times.
I live in Fonthill with my wife Sue. We spend a lot of time with our son, daughter, and our new grandson. We make memories travelling to the cottage 5-6 times a year. In my free time I like to hike, swim, fish, kayak and lounge.
