Our Clients

We believe an exceptional client experience requires two key ingredients: strong investment returns and outstanding client service. Our mission is to deliver on both.  Manitou clients include individuals, families, foundations and institutions. While each client has a unique set of circumstances, they can be differentiated based on the nature of their needs.
Some entrust us with the stewardship of their overall financial affairs and rely on us to provide a total integrated solution. These are Investment Counselling clients.
Others direct or ‘mandate’ us to manage only a specific portion of their overall investment management requirements, hence we fulfill a portion of their overall solution. We call these clients Investment Mandate Clients.
Our goal is to provide each Manitou client with an exceptional experience.
