At BMO Nesbitt Burns, we offer discretionary and non discretionary portfolio solutions for clients.  Below is a brief overview of 2 options that I offer clients. If you would like further information, please call me to discuss how one of these could work for your investments. ~ Bill



BMO Nesbitt Burns Managed Portfolio Account

Bill Shepherd, Senior Portfolio Manager


For some investors, maintaining a traditional investment account simply doesn’t suit their needs or lifestyle. These individuals prefer to enter into a relationship with a personal Portfolio Manager† to take them to the next level of investing. The BMO Nesbitt Burns Managed Portfolio Account offers you a direct relationship with an accredited Portfolio Manager and gives you the peace of mind that comes from having a direct connection to the person making the investment decisions in your portfolio. Yet, by delegating the day-to-day decision-making, you have more time to pursue your other goals and interests.


Discretionary portfolio management means giving a professional Portfolio Manager the authority to make investment decisions on your behalf. Your investment strategy will be designed and managed according to your clearly-documented needs and goals. However, unlike a traditional investment account, it is not necessary for you to review and approve every transaction.


It’s a win-win situation. You are directly in touch with the person managing your investments, yet are not required to oversee each decision. These are handled by your Portfolio Manager whom you’ve entrusted to manage your investments on a discretionary basis.
