WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT AND BETTER
Starratt Wealth Management manages more than $225 million for high net worth and ultra-high net worth families across Canada. We pay close attention to the personal needs of each and every client.
Our team is distinguished by our expertise in investment management and planning, advising businesses and charitable organizations, and helping families navigate transitions during marital changes, business succession, retirement, estate planning and strategic philanthropic decisions.
Another important differentiator for our team is our expertise in alternative investments, which brings our clients enhanced risk management. As the investment environment has changed, volatility management has become top-of-mind with smart investors who do not want their portfolios to fall into a deep hole in times of crisis. Using best-in-class, authentic hedge funds (not the highly leveraged funds that have garnered a poor reputation), alternative pools (loans, mortgages or receivables), hard assets (precious metals, timber, other commodities, and real estate) and a discerning approach to unique private equity opportunities, we aim to bring our investors lower risk with higher returns.
Our clients are our partners. We work together to help you reach your financial goals today and in the future by providing:
