INDEPENDENCE

This means absolutely no ties to any proprietary investments. We always select the best public or private investment solution without any bias whatsoever. What matters is cost vs benefit and best in class solutions for you - as opposed to anyone else.

CARE & CONSIDERATION

There is a saying “no one cares what you know until they know that you care”. Never has this been more applicable than in investment management or medical situations. I strongly believe no one will care more about your money/wealth creation and account management (outside of you and your loved one) than us. With decades of experience, we have the client testimonials, references and ongoing advocacy for our services to prove it!

Our Process

Our Process

We create and preserve wealth by providing to individuals, institutions and foundations the necessary services and proven solutions consistent with the worlds’ largest and most successful institutional and high net worth investors.

An Institutional Approach to Investing

At Prittie Private Wealth, our investment approach is based on the concept that since the needs of the high net worth and institutional investor are the same as the average investor, the portfolio profiles should be similar.

Institutional/HNW Asset Allocation Wealth is created not only in the public markets, but also by private businesses.

The largest and most successful institutions in the world like the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) which manages over $183 Billion for the benefit of every Canadian has altered their asset mix in recent years to include private/alternative investments.  The Canadian Exempt (private) Market raised $142.91 billion in capital in 2011 alone.

The world’s most successful institutions and high net worth investors have been investing in this space for generations and have achieved uncorrelated above average rates of return utilizing an asset mix combining traditional public as well as private and alternative investment solutions.

The investment objectives of successful, large institutions and those of high net-worth investors are as follows:

Preserve Capital 

Minimize Taxes

Ensure Liquidity

Income

Grow Capital

Is your objective not the same? If so, why aren’t your portfolios the same?

To help bridge the gap in this apparent dysfunctionality, we offer a very wide array of investment solutions including:

If appropriate for your portfolio, given your objectives, time horizon and liquidity needs, you may want to consider investing in a similar manner.

Wealth is created not only in the public markets but also by private businesses. The world’s most successful institutions and high net worth investors have been investing in this space for generations and have achieved above-average rates of return utilizing an asset mix combining traditional and private and alternative investments.

Many of the largest and most successful pension plans in the world, i.e. the Harvard Endowment, OMERS, HOOP, the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) have long held private and alternative investments as an important value-added component to their investment strategy.

Preserve Capital 

Minimize Taxes

Generate Income

Despite having the same goals, the Wealthy Invest Differently.  At Prittie Private Wealth, our investment approach is based on the concept that since the needs of the wealthy and institutional investor are the same as the wealth-seeking investor, it follows that their portfolios should be similar.  We uniquely offer our clients access to world-class proven co-investment and stand-alone private investment opportunities.

The world’s most successful institutions and affluent investors have achieved above average rates of return utilizing an asset mix combining traditional and private and alternative investments.  Private investments have many advantages; they are not impacted by market fluctuations which can reduce volatility.  They provide an additional source of diversification that can mitigate overall portfolio risk. Many are income-oriented and have very attractive yields for income seekers. Many are often long-term investments with high tax-deferred growth potential.

Democratizing Private Opportunities

Our mission is to provide all wealth-seeking investors with access to investment opportunities both within the public and private realm that are typically reserved for the wealthy and institutional investor. Through Mandeville Private Client Inc., and its parent company Portland Investment Counsel Inc., our clients have access to world leaders in private partnerships, such as the European Investment Bank, Liberty Media, Cygnus/KKR, and many other proven and successful private investors.  When working with us, we as registered portfolio managers, provide you instant access to these types of investments without having to meet the accredited investor status (proven net worth/income levels).
