Firm History

Nexus Investment Management Inc. provides segregated and pooled fund portfolio management and financial counselling to individuals, trusts, estates and foundations.

Nexus is independent and wholly owned by our principals, so our interests are directly aligned with our clients’ long-term investment success. Since its was founded in 1988, several hallmarks define Nexus’ services:
– A sound investment management approach with a superior long-term record and carefully managed risk.
– A tailored long-term financial and investment plan.
– Independence, integrity and experience.
– The accountability and compelling value from a direct relationship.

Investment Philosophy

Nexus manages fixed income, balanced and growth portfolios. We believe that having an appropriate long-term asset mix and successful bottom-up security selection are critical factors in the investment process.

First, the partners determine the appropriate asset mix for each client, based on financial, tax and risk considerations.

For equities, Nexus uses a “Growth at a Reasonable Price” philosophy which is a bottom-up approach to screen for high-quality, sustainable companies that are available at an attractive price relative to their longer-term prospects. Criteria include strong management, steady earnings growth, healthy balance sheets, profitability and valuation. These are investments that we can hold for the long term, resulting in low portfolio turnover. We are disciplined in monitoring existing holdings and selling.

We manage the fixed income portfolio by altering maturity and credit mix according to our outlook. We limit the portfolio to investment-grade securities.

All of our investments share Nexus’ investment philosophy and are offered through segregated account management and a family of cost-effective pooled funds managed by Nexus  the North American Equity, North American Balanced, North American Income, and International Equity funds. 

Comprehensive financial counselling is available, which can assist you with tax efficiency, estate planning and investment structuring.

Reporting & Communication with Clients

Each client is assigned a primary and backup portfolio manager. Clients have continuous access to both investment and financial counsel managers and receive regular reports from Nexus and a third-party custodian.
