Landscape of the sea and the sky

Over 23 years of helping families live their best lives

CWB Wealth Partners’ beginning was inspired by four founders who were working at large investment firms, where they felt the company was putting corporate objectives above the clients’ best interests. They knew a better way existed. On June 23, 1999, Brent McLean & three others embarked on a journey to build a wealth management company that fiercely put clients at its core. Their vision was to build Canada’s most respected wealth management company. Two of the founders, Kevin Dehod and Russ MacKay, remain active in the business today.

Based in Calgary, AB, CWB Wealth Partners offers a specialized investment management service, which allows for more flexibility with client accounts. We develop personalized investment strategies for high-net-worth individuals and families, institutions, foundations, and not-for-profit organizations, and have over $2 billion of assets under management and administration.

Given CWB Wealth Partners is our only IIROC* boutique, there are certain circumstances where our flexible platform can add value for our clients:

  1. Core position(s) – when clients have concentrated holdings in a single stock, our CWB Wealth Partners portfolio managers are able to advise and execute strategies to properly manage the position.
  2. Consolidating existing portfolios – when clients have existing portfolios of stocks, bonds, ETFs, private and public funds, and limited partnerships, and the consolidation and ongoing management of the portfolio is necessary.
  3. Flexibility with managed and non-managed accounts – when clients wish to have a more flexible portfolio strategy which entails managed solutions offered by CWB Wealth, along with non-managed self-directed accounts, but under a watchful eye.

 

*CWB Wealth Partners is regulated through the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), allowing for specialized investment services.

Our Journey with CWB Financial Group

Our journey with CWB Financial Group (CWB) began in May 2013. CWB felt strongly that adding CWB Wealth Partners to their growing wealth management platform would enhance their client relationships. Being part of CWB has allowed us to broaden the financial service offerings we provide our clients. Early on, we recognized the alignment in our corporate cultures and values, and similar approach to building client relationships. CWB has an entrepreneurial approach to the services they provide for their clients – this entrepreneurial fabric is familiar to ours.

With the vision of building a premier wealth management arm, CWB Financial Group launched CWB Wealth in February 2016. As a proud boutique subsidiary of CWB Wealth, we draw on each other’s breadth of experience, knowledge and support to deliver the best solutions for our clients. Our synergy with CWB Wealth has also provided strength and depth in the areas of operations, research, technology, and management, so we can continue focusing solely on our clients and how we can continue making their lives better.
