Portfolio Managers are known as:

Investment Counsellors, Asset Managers, Investment Managers and Wealth Managers.

Portfolio Managers are firms and people who manage investment portfolios on behalf of private clients, foundations, endowments and pensions.  Portfolio Managers differ from mass-market or retail investment managers because they manage larger amounts of money for fewer clients. 

Fiduciary Responsibility

Portfolio Managers have a fiduciary duty to act with care, honesty and good faith, always in the best interest of their clients.  Investment decisions therefore must be independent and free of bias.  This results in a higher level of trust placed on Portfolio Managers.

Professional Qualifications

As fiduciaries, securities regulation requires the highest level of education and experience as well as an Investment  Policy Statement (IPS) or written agreement.  An individual written agreement will be established to set out how you will work with your Portfolio Manager, including ongoing communication, types of investments, reporting, fees, risks and other issues related to your specific circumstances.

Personalized Management of your Portfolios

Portfolio Managers provide ongoing management of your investments based on your objectives and risk tolerance outlined in you IPS.  You typically give authority to the Portfolio Manager to make investment decisions without prior approval from you for each transaction (referred to as discretionary management).


Portfolio Managers charge a percentage of the investments they manage.  This fee is transparent and generally much less than retail management and distribution costs which are often embedded as a cost of doing business.  Fees are fully transparent on client statements and typically go down as a percentage of your portfolio as your assets grow.  Fees are not paid by commission based on volume of buying or selling investments and are significantly lower than typical mutual fund fees.

Discretionary Portfolio Management is designed for clients looking for personalized service over their entire account. 

To provide discretionary portfolio management, a wealth advisor must receive portfolio management certification by a recognized regulatory authority.  Qualifications include: 

*  certification as a CIM (Canadian Investment Manager) or CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst)

*  accumulated years of experience as an active registered full-service brokerage representative

Joyce Marbach and Kristen Ricci of Marbach Wealth Management have both achieved the prestigious designation of Portfolio Manager.

With this approach, Joyce and Kristen, as portfolio managers, prepare investment policy statements and construct portfolios based on an in-depth examination of your financial situation and investment needs.  As your Portfolio Managers, they regularly monitor your account ensuring the asset allocation and performance objectives are in line with the original policy statement that was set out. 

Discretionary Portfolios provide the portfolio manager with the latitude needed to manage all of your investments.  You entrust your savings to Joyce and Kristen who make all the necessary decisions involved in the day-to-day management of your portfolio in keeping with your investor profile, restrictions, constraints  and investment objectives. 

Benefits of doing business with a Portfolio Manager

Personalized management and communication

You will enjoy a personalized business relationship, unparalleled portfolio management skills and a better overall client experience due to the benefits of discretionary management.

 A rigorous process that incorporates:

* adherence to your investment policy parameters

* regular monitoring on the relevance of your holdings for your goals

* supervision of the model's relative performance

* compliance with regulatory policies and procedures

The flexibility to quickly adjust your portfolio in keeping with market changes

With financial information circulating faster then ever, managers sometimes need to act quickly.  Due to the discretionary control you grant to the Portfolio Manager immediate changes to a portfolio can be made.

Fees tailored to your portfolio

Portfolio managers are not compensated for the number of trades they execute, but rather for their expertise, sound decision making and the range of services they provide.  Monthly management fees represent a fixed percentage of the value of your portfolio - rising as your assets increase in value and falling should your investments incur a setback.  This fee-based relationship provides the manager the freedom to look after your best interests without having to take transaction costs into consideration.
