Private client investment counselling is a discretionary service: Letko Brosseau manages your portfolio by making all buy and sell decisions on your behalf. This provides you with comfort and peace of mind, knowing that a talented and experienced investment management team is doing in-depth research and working to meet your long-term goals. You will receive quarterly portfolio reports and meet with your Investment Services Director for annual portfolio and economic reviews.
As a client of Letko Brosseau, an Investment Services Director will be assigned to you. Our Investment Services Directors are experienced representatives who typically hold the CFA® or CIM® designation. His or her primary function is to answer any questions you may have and explain our investment philosophy, portfolio strategy, company outlooks and performance.
In addition, Investment Services Directors participate in the monitoring of portfolios and are involved in the portfolio compliance process. You will also have direct access to a dedicated Investment Services Associate to assist you with all administrative aspects of your account(s). We work effectively with family offices, tax lawyers and accountants to facilitate tax planning and reporting.
All portfolios regardless of mandate, vehicle or type of client, are managed by the same team of investment professionals according to the same investment philosophy.
China, India, Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America are amongst the fastest growing and most dynamic economic regions of the world. A true global investment strategy needs exposure to strong businesses in these areas.
