Client Experience

We recognize that every client has a unique set of circumstances, and we pride ourselves on providing a positive and individualized client experience. We view each step as building our long-term relationship with you – from the first meeting, through the process of developing your portfolio, to ongoing management to meet changing market conditions and reflect your evolving goals.


*Odlum Brown Financial Services Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Odlum Brown Limited offering life insurance products, retirement, estate and financial planning exclusively to Odlum Brown clients.

Financial Planning

Through our wholly owned subsidiary, Odlum Brown Financial Services Limited, we are able to offer a broad spectrum of financial planning services. We recognize the diversity and complexity of your values and beliefs, so we offer these services to ensure you receive the services that align with your goals.


Investment Management

Our investment philosophy is contrarian. We buy when the crowd is negative and try to sell into bouts of excessive optimism, believing that you have to act differently to achieve above-average results. We are value investors who like highly profitable companies with good growth potential and recognize that the best prices are often realized by buying companies that are experiencing short-term fundamental weakness.

There is no one-size-fits-all portfolio for any of our clients; instead we apply our discipline to achieve a great, customized result for every individual. As the adage goes, the only constant in life is change. We anticipate there will always be changes to both your lifestyle and capital markets, and we use a lifecycle approach to make sure we consistently meet your needs in the context of the investment landscape. This is where we do our best work.
