When it comes to Mutual Funds as investments, many financial advisors have the same offerings. What makes Manitoulin Financial different? In great part, it's our focus on the managers themselves. We aspire to be pickers of people and not pickers of investments. This is important in the sense that Mutual Funds are, for the most part, baskets of stocks, bonds, and cash. What makes the difference is the person who is choosing to buy and sell a particular stock, deciding on the percentage of stocks to bonds, or deciding to hedge the portfolio for currency risks, etc. At the end of the analysis, the name of the Mutual Fund is not as important as the name and success of the person managing the portfolio.

At Manitoulin Financial, our clients are the main focus. Correctly pairing a client with a Portfolio Manager is our goal. Considering many factors including financial objectives, risk tolerance, and time horizon, we tailor a portfolio specifically to you. We also offer many different types of accounts, which gives us the ability to serve the many different needs of our clients. Some of the accounts available through us include: RRSPs, TFSAs, LIRAs, LIFs, RRIFs, RESPs, Group Pensions Plans, Open Accounts, and others.
