How are you protected?
Independent thought and integrity starts with independent ownership.
All our senior Portfolio Managers are CFA charterholders (Chartered Financial Analysts). We have a legal fiduciary duty to represent your best interest. We are not owned or controlled by a larger marketing-focused financial organization.
Avenue Investment Management is an independent Investment Counsellor Portfolio Manager registered in Ontario, Alberta, B.C. and Saskatchewan with oversight by the Securities Commissions in these provinces. (It is important to note that bank-owned brokerage firms are “self-regulated” by an organization called IIROC.)
Your account is segregated.
Your accounts will own individual securities held in your name. However, for smaller accounts, like TFSA, we have a more efficient pooled fund which replicates Avenue’s core equity portfolio.
Your account is secure.
Your account is held at NBIN (National Bank Independent Network) in your name. All investment accounts are covered by the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF) in the amount of $1,000,000.
Our performance is independently verified.
Avenue Investment Management claims compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards. (GIPS®) Independent verifiers examine performance results every quarter and annually in accordance with GIPS®. Our performance is comparable on an apples to apples basis to all major money managers in the world that subscribe to this process.
