Our Philosophy

Here at Harper Private Wealth, our wealth management process is guided by a disciplined philosophy based on the investing principles of Nick Murray and the simple yet effective views of Warren Buffett.

If practiced together, we believe these six variables benefit the long-term, goal-focused investor to achieve the desired investment outcomes that support their financial plan. These six variables include three values and three basic portfolio strategies:

Discipline + Patience = Success

Our Process

Total Wealth Management is a comprehensive approach to help you achieve your goals. The focus of our first meeting is YOU. What is important to you? What are your goals? By when would you like to achieve them? What is your time horizon? We learn about you and your goals to help us construct an effective financial plan.

The financial plan determines the asset allocation of your investment portfolio, which is a calculated weighting of equities and fixed income (bond, GICs and cash) based on our discussions of your time horizon, investment needs, and risk tolerance to help you achieve your financial goals. This raw number will likely dictate your lifetime investment return.

A financial plan gives you the confidence to make sound financial decisions and the freedom to live life the way you want. It also provides a clear roadmap for your future by addressing all aspects of your financial situation.

Wealth management extends beyond investment advice and money management, helping you protect your lifestyle, manage your nest egg, plan your retirement, and create your legacy. We guide you and your family through each life stage by helping you understand the various financial issues, concerns, and opportunities as they arise.
