Our team

Craig Machel FMA, CIM
Portfolio Manager, Investment Advisor
Tel: 416.864.3561

As a Portfolio Manager, Craig works together with a select group of affluent clients and their families as well as corporations and foundations who share a common goal: to protect and grow their wealth in a reliable and predictable fashion. He provides highly personalized advisory services within a framework of disciplined, diversified portfolio construction, selecting from among the world’s most successful and exclusive money managers.

Thinking differently about how to ensure a positive impact in his clients’ financial circumstances, Craig goes beyond traditional portfolio management in the equity and bond markets alone to include conservative and predictable alternative assets, offering more effective diversification and a benchmark that offers protection and peace of mind regardless of market conditions.

Craig's designations include the Financial Management Association (FMA), the Canadian Investment Manager (CIM), and his life insurance license. Craig actively participates in the Canadian chapter of the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) and presents as a guest speaker or panelist at various industry and private client events.

A graduate from the University of Western Ontario with a BA in Economics, Craig is a frequent commentator on the BNN and in The Globe and Mail, as well as in other local and national media.
