Wealth management that evolves as your needs, priorities and circumstances change over time

As a Portfolio Manager for TD Wealth Private Investment Counsel, David and his team work with high net worth clients to identify their investment and wealth goals and build a strategy to achieve those goals. Using discretionary portfolio management, we handle the day to day management of client portfolios and provide clients with regular performance reviews. Supported by TD Specialists, we also provide clients with comprehensive advice including retirement, estate, insurance and business succession planning strategies.

Discretionary Portfolio Management is the delegation of the day-to-day investment decisions to a professional investment manager, who operates within guidelines and parameters established with the client. We are stewards who guide clients to make well informed decisions:

- How to use the capital markets to achieve short and long-term financial goals
- Understand asset class characteristics and risk-return trade-offs
- Develop and adhere to a clear and appropriate long-term investment policy
- Prepare for swings in the markets and keep emotions and biases in check
