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.

**PSN/Informa ranks product track records according to a proprietary blend of metrics. The peer group for the 6 STAR CATEGORY was created using the information collected through the PSN investment manager questionnaire and uses only gross of fee returns. Products must have an R-Squared of 0.80 or greater relative to the style benchmark for the recent five-year period. Moreover, products must have returns greater than the style benchmark for the three latest three-year rolling periods. Products are then selected which have a standard deviation for the five-year period equal or less than the median standard deviation for the peer group. The top ten information ratios for the latest five-year period then become the TOP GUNS. Ranking based on the performance of the Letko Brosseau Emerging Markets Equity Composite in U.S. dollars as of December 31, 2019.
