The Woo Team

Our Philosophy

Our approach to developing an investment plan is three fold:


 1)      Develop an appropriate asset allocation that reflects your risks and rewards


• One of the most important factors in determining the correct risk adjusted return is proper asset allocation between: cash, equities and fixed income.  We’ll construct a well diversified portfolio consisting of *: stocks, mutual funds, preferred shares, government/corporate bonds, convertible debentures and money market instruments.


 2)      Describe and outline ways to minimize taxes


• While constructing this portfolio we never forget the importance of minimizing taxes.  We keep up to date on tax rules that affect your negatively affect your portfolio and identify rules that are opportunities.


 3)      Ensure your unique personal circumstances are being looked after by reviewing and updating investment goals, life changes and portfolio performance.


*a portfolio may not necessarily contain all of these securities or may contain securities not contained herein.
