Firm

Aldersley Securities Inc. was established September 1995 by Jack Aldersley, FCPA and his daughter, Helen E. Aldersley, CFP, CIM, FMA. Its purpose is to provide an independent investment advisory service for residents of Ontario. As of January 2018 we are managing over $80 million of client assets.

Our mission is to provide sound, competent, unbiased investment advice.  Our approach is personalized.  Whether it is all fixed income, all equities or a balance of both, we construct individual portfolios that are suitable for our client’s goals, circumstances and risk tolerance.

Investment Philosophy        

Our objective is to preserve and to grow client wealth by planning and building a diversified investment portfolio. Our equity portfolios consist of medium to large, Canadian, US and some international companies that pay stable dividends.  We do not make speculative investments unless specifically told to do so by a client.  Because different clients have different preferences, we do not provide pooled funds.

Our Services

Each client has their own account with a discount broker which is accessible to them at all times.  The discount broker acts as custodian of the securities, in addition to accounting for cash balances, collecting interest, dividends and income tax reporting.

Investments can be held in:   

  • Investment Accounts (cash or margin)

  • Tax – Free Savings Accounts 

  • Registered Retirement Savings Plan Accounts (regular, spousal and locked-in)

  • Registered Retirement Income Fund Accounts (regular, spousal and locked-in)

  • Registered Education Savings Plan Accounts

  • Estate or Trust Accounts                                                                                             

  • Corporate Accounts

  • We work with our clients’ accountants and lawyers to ensure accurate reporting. To fully understand our clients’ changing needs, Aldersley Securities strives to meet with each client at least annually to reaffirm investment objectives, making changes to their portfolios as required.

  • Private Client Accounts are non-discretionary. We discuss all proposed transactions with our clients and do not proceed without client authorization.
