There's more to building wealth than investing money. You also need to establish a thorough and realistic plan to carry out your projects through the years. Experience has taught us that the best way to achieve your objectives - whether short or long term - is to use an integrated management approach that is suited to both your needs and your professional, personal and financial situation. By doing so, you derive a lot more flexibility to turn your dreams into reality.
The key to your financial success is, in our opinion, your wealth advisor. Choosing an advisor who listens to you and can find ways for you to achieve your personal and financial goals is however, not that easy. Luckily, with a National Bank Financial Wealth Management Advisor, you gain access to a comprehensive management approach that is rooted in more than a century of know-how. It binds together the strength and security of a large institution with the independent advice of a specialized brokerage firm.

Financial Science at Work
We take your investments into a different dimension. Our primary objective is to help you achieve your financial goals. We work with you in a collaborative fashion, to understand your needs and your risk tolerance, and remove all the guesswork so that you feel comfortable along the way. Then, you can focus on what you do best without worrying about your investments. We do this by thoughtful diversification and implementing the academic research-based premise that portfolios titled toward small cap, low relative price (i.e. value) and more profitable stocks have higher expected returns over a long period of time than traditional index-based funds.
Simply put… because our approach is different. It’s scientific. It’s based on research. And, it’s proven. Dimensional works with a select group of financial advisors globally. We have worked through a comprehensive due-diligence process and continue to participate in rigorous ongoing education in capital markets, portfolio management, and trading in order to stay abreast of how the latest advances are applied to Dimensional’s investment strategies.
"We consider a dimension to be a factor that explains differences in returns, is persistent and pervasive, can be cost-effectively captured in diversified portfolios, and is consistent with an equilibrium view of investing."
Contrast with Conventional Management
Dimensional’s investment philosophy is centered on an equilibrium, or "efficient market", view of public markets. In this view, the best way to add value over conventional benchmarks is to structure portfolios along the dimensions of expected returns. For equity portfolios, expected returns are increased by giving greater weight to smallcap, low relative price (value), and more profitable firms. Dimensional tries to beat the market without "forecasting" in the usual sense.
We don’t have to tell you that your portfolio is important to you. And it’s important to us too. If you have an appetite for increasing expected returns while lowering the cost of investing, contact us today for a consultation on how the Dimensional approach can work for you.
