Both Michael and Adam Prittie have been long-term supporters of the CFRA Christmas Cheer Breakfast, which serves 11 important charities and local community organizations. They are major sponsors.
Michael Prittie currently sponsors 5 children through World Vision. He has been a sponsor since 1998 to help them, their families and the communities they live in. In addition, Michael is a generous supporter of numerous local charities such as food banks and The Ottawa Mission.
"We have been Michael Prittie's clients for 25 years and have stayed with him through four different wealth management organizations. His impetus for these moves has been client focused, seeking out those firms offering the most additional value to clients such as private investment access. We have unreservedly recommended him to others and our children are now among his satisfied clients.
Michael has capably guided and assisted us as our financial and related needs evolved with each stage of our lives from raising a young family and operating businesses through to retirement. We recognize his significant efforts to improve his knowledge, increase his professional capabilities and keep abreast of changing circumstances and opportunities in order to offer the impressively broad range of sound and up-to-date advice needed in such circumstances. His client council with rotating membership ensures client feedback is solicited and acted upon.
Trust in your financial advisor is paramount and we have grown to trust Michael's judgement implicitly and are yet to be disappointed: just the opposite in fact. For example, he advised caution during the heady days leading to the big high-tech bust and has induced us to buy low and sell high through several business cycles which is much easier said than done. We now rely on his discretionary investment management services to act quickly and capitalize on opportunities. Through this trust, we have also learned to understand and appreciate the interconnected intricacies of wealth management and how we can benefit. To this end, we take advantage of his tax planning and preparation services which incorporate our individual and collective personal and corporate income taxes resulting in significant tax savings.
Michael is unabashedly enthusiastic in his willingness to share his financial knowledge. He loves his vocation and it shows! Michael truly epitomizes a financial advisor."
