It's about peace of mind
Since 1974, clients have entrusted us to provide customized investment counselling and asset management to help them reach their unique investment goals. Our deep knowledge and history of investment counselling continues to make this service a cornerstone of Mawer today.
This is a discretionary service—this means your dedicated investment counsellor manages your portfolio on your behalf. This provides peace of mind by freeing you from the ongoing decision-making surrounding your investments.
Investment Counselling is available to individuals, families, holding corporations, foundations, trusts and estates.
Dedicated client service team
As a Mawer Investment Counselling client, you will have a dedicated investment team. This ensures that we are readily available to respond to any questions or instructions you may have.
Your investment road map
Our first step is to work closely with you to establish your specific investment objectives and risk parameters which are incorporated into an investment roadmap known as the Investment Policy Statement (IPS). Once your IPS is established, your investment counsellor assumes responsibility for managing and monitoring your investment portfolio. This alleviates the worry of constantly monitoring your investments and making frequent investment decisions.
Through our online client portal, you’ll receive comprehensive reporting including transaction history, portfolio valuation, performance, and asset mix reports. Year-end tax reporting is also provided.
Communication is the key
Your investment counsellor will review your investment strategy with you annually or as required to ensure your investment portfolio remains suitable and aligned to your circumstances and investment goals. We provide regular investor education and market updates through our Art of Boring blog and podcasts, quarterly updates, and topical workshops.
A multi-disciplinary approach can often be beneficial to investors with more complex needs. For Investment Counselling clients with over $1 million in investible assets, your investment team is available to work with your other advisors—accountants, lawyers, financial or estate planners, etc. —to ensure your long-term objectives are met.
