Why Should You Do Business With Us?

1

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

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:

Traditional + Private Investment graph

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

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.

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).

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve and build clients’ wealth by providing proven and effective wealth creation services and solutions to individuals, institutions and foundations in a manner that is consistent with the world’s largest and most successful institutional and high net worth investors. To invest our own money alongside yours in the same manner and in the same investment solutions. To always position our clients’ interest ahead of the firms and our own.

Leading the Path Forward – Working Together in a New Environment

When Michael retired at the end of 2023, after almost seven years working together, I welcomed the opportunity to become your trusted advisor and portfolio manager. I’m honoured to have the opportunity to earn your trust and confidence. I look forward to working with you all in providing advice and guidance for your financial affairs as we work together to achieve your goals. While Michael and I worked as a team together in the office, he passed on much of his wisdom, professionalism, and commitment to me, and given our relationship, Michael and I still converse regularly. Accompanying my licensing, designations and professional qualifications, I want to assure you that, like Michael, no one will care more than I about your financial future outside of you and your family.

The New Chapter in Our Life – Why Panama?

We are pleased to call Panama City our new home and received our permanent resident cards and “Cedulas” in late January. Our home (condominium) is of high quality and we are very happy with it. The building and grounds are very nice, as is the historic UNESCO heritage community of Casco Viejo (circa 1673) that we live in. Our building was reconstructed from a one-time school, monastery and other uses since the 1800’s. It has been completely restored (the front half where we are, from the ground up) to its original Spanish period character on the exterior as required by law and the interior is like any new modern building in Ottawa or Miami on the inside.

Market Recap: Q1 2024 – A Time for Cautious Optimism

As we turn the page on the first quarter of 2024, we wanted to provide a recap of the market’s performance and highlight some key trends that may impact your portfolio in the coming months.

Mixed Signals: The first quarter presented a complex picture. While economic growth slowed, it did manage to stay positive, extending the current expansion. The Federal Reserve’s decision to continue the pause in interest rate hikes was a welcome development, and many anticipate potential cuts later this year. These factors fueled investor optimism for corporate earnings rebound.
