Founded in 1974, Mawer is a privately owned, independent investment counsellor with a team of over 90 people. We manage in excess of $16.4 billion in assets for a broad range of individual and institutional investors across a variety of global asset classes.
The Firm is one of Canada's most experienced investment counsellors. Through building resilient portfolios, we have safely and profitably navigated our clients through the high inflation environment of the 1970s, the oil shocks of 1979 and 1986, the high interest rate environment of the early 1980s, the market crash of 1987, the end of the Cold War, the Japanese market bubble of the late 1980s, the Gulf War, the Asian Crisis, two Quebec referenda, the Russian currency crisis and the demise of Long Term Capital of 1998, the Tech bubble of the late 1990s, the Terrorist attacks of 2001, and the Credit Crisis of 2008/2009. Throughout, we have provided consistent, steady portfolio management for our clients based on a solid, proven investment philosophy and disciplined processes.
Mawer Investment Management Ltd.'s mission is to prudently build clients' investment assets by providing independent investment counseling services to individuals, retirement plans, foundations, and not-for-profit organizations.
Mawer Investment Management Ltd.'s vision is to be a top tier investment counsellor, widely known for its professional and disciplined investment approach, its ethics, and the superior treatment of clients, employees and other stakeholders.
We act with integrity above all else through honest and complete communication; effective listening; accepting responsibility; and keeping agreements.
We strive to be “best in class, first time right, on time, every time.” We will achieve client satisfaction through our client reporting and client service standards and in our actions and behaviours.
We are committed to excellence, a process and mindset that pushes one to continually perform at the highest level one possibly can. Excellence is a work in progress and fuelled by a continuous desire to learn and improve.
Long Term Perspective
We continually balance the short term demands that challenge our long term perspective in investing for our clients, managing our business, the treatment of our employees and the interaction with our community.
