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


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.


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.


With an entrepreneurial culture, we’re better at business because we’re a firm built by advisors, for advisors. Our agile approach to technology means we always have the best platforms and solutions for our clients and advisors.

Shaun Hauser

Founder & President

Wellington-Altus Private Counsel

Wellington-Altus Private Counsel was launched in February 2020 as the firm’s Investment Counsel Portfolio Manager division. Registered as a Portfolio Manager (PM) and Investment Fund Manager (IFM), Wellington-Altus Private Counsel portfolio managers offer an independent and agnostic approach to managing wealth. Our independence provides us with more agility and opens us up to a wider range of investment options, including access to some of the best institutional money managers around the globe via segregated and tactically managed unified accounts.

Wellington-Altus USA

Wellington-Altus USA—a wholly owned Canadian subsidiary of Wellington-Altus Financial—allows Wellington-Altus advisors the ability to offer Managed Accounts to U.S. clients or to Canadian clients with U.S. domiciled accounts. We set out to put our clients’ needs first and this platform allows our advisors to provide clients with a complete wealth management offering regardless of which side of the border you reside. Wellington-Altus USA custody services are provided by RBC Advisor Services, a division of RBC Capital Markets LLC—a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Bank of Canada, which is one of the five largest banks in North America.

Wellington-Altus Insurance

We do insurance differently. We don’t look for ways to sell product – we find opportunities to improve client outcomes. We don’t have targets and revenue expectations. We genuinely believe that clients deserve to be treated with respect. We work as a team to find the best opportunities for clients to save money, reduce taxes and enhance their overall lifestyle – now and in the future.

We provide peace of mind. For clients, it’s knowing that they are protected. For advisors, it’s knowing that the proper solution was recommended. It is of the utmost importance to us that clients not only understand what they have, but why they have it.

We operate independently with no ties to specific products or sales targets. We strive to understand what is important to our clients and find ways to protect and enhance not only their current lifestyle, but that of future generations.

How We Can Help

Wellington-Altus advisors work to deliver in-depth guidance and solutions tailored to each client’s needs.

We aim to help clients preserve and grow wealth in every aspect. With access to a full range of wealth management solutions, clients can feel secure about their future.
