Wellington-Altus Announces Expansion of National Footprint to Quebec

WINNIPEGTORONTO and MONTREAL, September 14, 2021/CNW/ – Wellington-Altus Financial (Wellington-Altus), has officially begun its expansion into the Quebec market, building on a track record of remarkable growth for Canada’s top-rated advisory firm.*

“While still in the early phase of our rollout, we are extremely eager to get up and running in Quebec, a market with incredible potential for our firm,” said Shaun Hauser, Wellington-Altus Co-Founder & President. “Our momentum has been unstoppable over the past four years and opening the doors to this region gives us even more room to grow our team of the top 5% of investment advisors in Canada.”

To help steward the expansion forward, Wellington-Altus has brought on Quebec-native Christian Perreault as Senior Vice-President & Regional Manager, QC. In this role, he will focus on getting Quebec operations ready to begin onboarding new advisors early next year.

“Christian is an industry veteran with deep connections in the Quebec investment community,” said Jordy Chilcott, Executive Vice-President, Wealth Strategy & Enablement. “He is exactly who we need to lead us in this important market for our firm.”

Prior to joining Wellington-Altus, Christian was most recently a Regional Director at Russell Investments, while his background in the industry dates as far back as Midland Walwyn, with stops at Merrill Lynch Global Asset Management and CIBC Capital Markets along the way.

“Wellington’s independence and entrepreneurial culture will translate really well to advisors in Quebec who want to ditch bureaucracy and have freedom to run their businesses in a way that puts clients first,” said Christian. “We have an exciting journey ahead of us!”

Once fully operational in Quebec, Wellington-Altus will be laser-focused on bringing in additional top-tier talent to its network of investment advisors and continuing to deliver outstanding, private client experiences to Canadians from coast to coast.

Investing in a Corporation

For business owners or incorporated practitioners that generate surplus funds not required to meet personal lifestyle needs or the needs of the business or practice, the question becomes how to maximize the value of these funds?


February Market Insights: Trump’s Shadow

As we enter a presidential election year in the U.S., financial markets are resonating with historical echoes. One can particularly recognize the rise of populism after the Civil War, which parallels today’s socio political dynamics. This comparison challenges the conventional wisdom about investing in a world that is constantly evolving. Concomitantly, there are parallels to the post-Second World War era, notably the extreme levels of debt which rival only today. As the war ended and life got back to normal, a growth scare and deflation resulted. Hence my thesis that our transition period out of COVID-19 has all the earmarks of a transitional period of secular stagnation and deflation.
