Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel

Leith Wheeler is an employee owned firm formed in 1982, with an expertise in long term, value investing. Today we have grown to a firm of 80 employees, headquartered in Vancouver and have offices in Calgary and Toronto. We manage over $18 billion of assets on behalf of pension, foundation, corporate, Aboriginal, and private clients across Canada

Since its inception, Leith Wheeler has offered investors a disciplined investment style that puts client’s interests first. Our goal has always been to preserve clients’ capital while offering superior investment growth, regardless of economic factors.  Leith Wheeler’s Portfolios are managed with the conviction that performance can only be added by being different from the market.  We use a three year time horizon when making our investment decisions.  Our approach is bottom up, not top down and stock selection is based on fundamental research with a strong value bias.  Our test for value is viewing any investment we make as if we were buying the whole business.  Therefore, the critical question becomes “what would be the price of the whole business that would make the purchase a profitable one?”

The firm is 100% privately owned by employees and related parties. More than 70% of employees are shareholders and it is our intent to keep the firm private on an ongoing basis. Our shareholders represent the current and next generation of operational management, analysts and portfolio managers who will manage the company’s future growth over the long term. This will ensure that Leith Wheeler will remain one of the few truly independent investment counsels in Canada.
