Indigenous Services

LBA has been honoured to serve the unique investment needs of First Nations, Métis and Inuit clients since 2004. We manage assets of approximately $350 million for diverse Indigenous communities and organizations across Canada.

We know that the prudent and effective management of trust assets will have a direct impact on the social and economic prosperity of community members today and will build wealth to preserve the well-being of future generations.

LBA is pleased to support organizations committed to achieving the highest standards of excellence in Indigenous finance, investing, management and leadership. We are members of the NATOA (National Aboriginal Trust Officers Association) and AFOA (Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of Canada).

Building Capacity: 
We are committed to helping build capacity among Indigenous communities on financial matters and have conducted numerous workshops over the years on topics including:

  • Investment guiding principles
  • Asset classes and asset allocation strategy
  • Understanding macroeconomic trends and financial markets
  • Fees and costs linked to investing

Educational materials are available upon request.
Our investment approach fully integrates Environmental, Social and Governance issues. We offer funds that are sensitive to specific ESG parameters and we are open to addressing your community’s unique needs.
