Joe addresses the needs of each client by developing an investment strategy that is tailored to achieve their short and long-term goals. Joe adds value in the following 5 ways:

  1. Top Down Analysis of the economy by staying current on projected inflation, interest rates, currencies, commodities etc. Then rebalances client portfolios to minimize risk and capitalize on opportunities.
  2. Bottom Up Analysis of individual stocks and corporate bonds. Joe effectively listens to the needs of each of his clients then communicates the opportunities and risks of each holding in their portfolios.
  3. Providing tax efficient investment strategies
  4. Clients get the best of both worlds. The support of a large Canadian bank as your custodian yet investment advice that is independent, unbiased and nimble.
  5. Each client receives a detailed financial plan to help ensure their retirement goals are on track.
