The Tolg Team



I want to Thank You for helping us put together such a great portfolio. I am so pleased with the performance and growth so far. MG


I reviewed your picks and my account to date. You have had a remarkable record for picking some good stocks. The problem has been a client who is gun shy (me) and that has held the account back. Anything you see that looks good let me know and I will try to be more aggressive. Thanks for your patience. RH


We are thrilled with the great return in the first half of the year! As I've said in the past, we are so happy to have moved our accounts to you. MD


Al, many, many thanks for all your great work. You are an outstanding financial advisor! I just wanted to say again how much I enjoy these quick reports. I especially liked this one because of the retirement info, a topic that is top-of-mind with me. I feel like someone is paying close attention to my investments. MS


You are doing a heck of a fine job mister !!!! Thank you just doesn’t justify how I really feel.  Please keep doing what you are doing!! You are helping me to see that there may be light at the end of the tunnel after all. JM

Your Accounts Are Protected

The Canadian securities industry has an insurance program in place called the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (“CIPF”). CIPF covers customer losses resulting from the insolvency of Member firms. Acumen Capital Finance Partners Limited is a Member firm. You pay no fees for this protection and coverage is automatic when you open an account with a dealer that is a Member of the Fund. CIPF covers both “general” and “separate” accounts of customers to a maximum of $1,000,000 each. Abrochure describing the nature and limits of coverage is available upon request. Further details can also be found on the CIPF web site at

In addition, security of your assets is ensured at Acumen. Acumen has engaged National Bank Independent Network ("NBIN") to provide back office services to Acumen for custody, trading, clearing and settlement of transactions with you.  NBIN is owned by National Bank of Canada and is the leading supplier of back office brokerage services to the Canadian financial community. All securities for which you have paid are “segregated” by NBIN. This means that they are your property and cannot be used in the operations of the dealer. They are also not available to meet the claims of any creditors of the dealer. It is important to know that the securities industry is closely monitored and that all firms must adhere to the regulations concerning the segregation of securities. To monitor compliance with industry regulations, firms are subject to both regular and surprise audits along with annual audits by a public accounting firm.
