Independent Private Wealth Management

Holistic Wealth Planning, Investment and Protection


Independent wealth management puts clients first in a way that large corporate institutions just can’t. Independent advisors are motivated because they’re not tied to selling bundled investments or meeting sales quotas. Instead, they can focus on delivering financial advice to clients and managing their assets on world-class platforms.


- Charlie Spiring, ICD.D
Founder, Chairman

We offer financial advice and asset management to high net-worth individuals, families, business owners and organizations.
Wellington-Altus Private Wealth?

Wellington-Altus Private Wealth was built by independent advisors to serve clients.

We’re Independent

Our independence allows us to be objective and impartial. Wellington-Altus is ideal for independent advisors and clients who don’t want the constraints of large corporate systems and requirements.

We’re Unconstrained

Clients come first—not sales quotas, not quarterly targets, not profitability minimums. Each client is unique, and so are the solutions they receive. Our advisors are free to do what’s right for every client, every time.

We’re Entrepreneurial

Rooted in entrepreneurship, we’re better at business because we’re investment advisors and vice versa. Entrepreneurism in motion benefits individuals and businesses alike.


Wellington-Altus Private Wealth is a member of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF) and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC).
