The HNW market in Canada is dominated by family business owners and expat clients drawn from
Asia Pacific and the US. These busy owners prefer discretionary asset management and have little
desire to try other options. As cautious investors they favor classic investments such as equities and
bonds, investing little into less liquid assets such as property or commodities. Tax is a major issue for
the domestic wealth market and a key driver for booking offshore.
Key Findings

entrepreneurship and family businesses.

line with regional peers such as the US.

forms of financial planning and is also driving investors to book their money offshore.
