Our Story


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.

Founder, Chairman

Our company was originally founded in 1996 to provide independent investment advice, financial planning and clear guidance for high net-worth individuals, families, business owners and institutional clients.

We value the objectivity and impartiality of being an independent firm where the best interests of our clients come first. This approach has served the firm well over many years.

We understand that today’s investor values the safety of a strong institution when entrusting their assets. The National Bank Independent Network (NBIN), a division of the National Bank of Canada, safely ensures custody of all client assets and performs our back-office services. NBIN also provides access to trade execution, new issues, extensive research and client reporting.

Wellington-Altus Private Wealth is a member of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF). Customers’ accounts are protected by the Canadian Investor Protection Fund within specified limits. A brochure describing the nature and limits of coverage is available upon request.
