The booming city of Calgary is another top location for ETF Capital Management’s growing clientele.
In the area of investment management, Calgary investors are a bit different from their counterparts in the East. As home to the head offices of many of Canada’s energy companies, Calgary’s per-capita household income is the top in the country for any major city.
Perhaps that’s because of the abundance of highly qualified engineers, self-made entrepreneurs, or Calgary’s significant financial industry. Any way you look at it, Calgary is home to some of Canada’s most dynamic and independent-thinking citizens. Speaking of the financial industry, Calgary is also the epicentre of Canada’s Exempt Market (represented by the Private Capital Markets Association of Canada http://www.pcmacanada.com). This is likely because Calgary’s massive energy and mining industries employ so many people – who understand the value of investing in the fields they work in.
"Calgary residents often have significant portions of their personal net-worth invested in company stock, so in the area of wealth management, Calgary families are turning more and more to wealth and investment management companies to help them balance out the resulting risks in the portfolios."
ETF Capital Management also actively invests in energy, mining and commodities (generally by way of ETFs), and our financial planning process is designed to manage concentration risk from over-exposure to energy and mining for those of our clients who require less volatility in their portfolios, and more consistent income than the commodity sectors generally afford.
When it comes to investment portfolios and investment management, Calgary investors are not afraid to invest and are serious about performance!
