Tax Planning & Management

We want to make sure you have an optimized tax strategy. Our financial advisors will provide you with the support you need on both business and personal fronts. Their vast experience in this field will help you achieve your desired financial goals.

Risk Management

Understanding and managing risk is something that our financial advisors will help you navigate. Let’s make sure you have contingency plans in place and are aware of the insurance options available to you.

Asset Allocation

Whether you are saving for retirement, drawing retirement income or investing for future generations, we will work with you to create a portfolio with a mix of asset classes as unique as you are.

Diversification

Everything in moderation, they say, and this holds true for a healthy portfolio. We make sure you are adequately diversified across asset types, sectors and geographical markets. This will make your portfolio well-balanced and structured, and you stand to benefit from it.

Account Structuring

Your financial needs will change over time, and so will the structure of your accounts. We’ll make sure there is a plan in place for now, and when these changes take place down the road. Our financial management services are versatile, which means your accounts can be re-structured with changing financial needs and requirements.

Rebalancing

We adjust your asset allocation periodically to ensure your portfolio is optimally balanced.

About Us

exp sm div

Our Approach

Exponent is not a sales organization remunerated by product sales, volumes, quotas or the number of generated transactions. Our investment decisions are completely independent and free of biases. Our fees are transparent and generally much lower than retail management products.

Our approach is simple. We design, implement and manage our clients’ portfolios so that they can benefit from Growth & Income with a Global Perspective. Our service is designed to be attentive to the needs of our clients. We continuously invest in technology and education so that our clients benefit from portfolios designed for their goals and aspirations.

Our Experience

Combined, our carefully curated team of consultants has over 100 years of relevant experience, education and accreditation. This unique team of people is the cornerstone of Exponent’s success.

Often, people come to us when dealing with significant wealth for the first time. This wealth could be the result of a very difficult emotional or stressful period (death, health issues, divorce, or the sale of a business). Other times, it is the culmination of a lifelong career, of saving and sacrifice, or a family legacy that they wish to pass on. Regardless of the situation, the dependability of our team's proven experience and the calibre of our stewardship bring comfort to those with wealth in our care.
