QV provides discretionary investment management services to high net worth individuals with minimum combined investable assets of $500,000. QV will manage personal funds, corporate accounts, formal and informal trust accounts, and registered retirement accounts.
Pooled Fund Management (>$500,000)
QV manages and employs six Pooled Funds to build a portfolio reflective of the client's long-term objectives. Typically, we employ our Canadian Balanced Fund as the core fund and complement it with one or more of our specialty funds.
Segregated Portfolio Management (>$10,000,000)
QV manages segregated portfolios for clients with a minimum account size of $10,000,000. The pooled funds serve as the investment models for our segregated accounts. Typically, we offer segregated management for clients with special needs with respect to tax, liquidity, or income.
Account Opening Process
QV Investors manages an individual's portfolio on a discretionary basis guided by their investment objectives.
The account opening process begins with defining an individual's investment requirements, preparing a policy document and recommending the strategy for investing.
An Account Application & Know Your Client Form is prepared which outlines our services to the client and records the client's personal information. A client questionnaire is contained within the Form to help determine the client's rate of return objectives and tolerance for risk.
To comply with regulatory requirements, we list below the type of information we may request, depending on the type of account:
- A copy of the government-issued photo identification
- A void cheque providing banking information
- Net worth and annual income information
- Stated purpose of investment
- Beneficiary Information
- Articles of Incorporation & Corporate Resolution (if Corporate Account)
- Trust documentation
Funds for investment management can be accepted via a cheque drawn on the client's bank account, and made payable to the custodian for the QV Pooled Funds, RBC Dexia Investors Services Trust. If the account is opened by a transfer from another financial institution, QV Investors will prepare the appropriate forms and letters to facilitate the transfer.
Reporting & Meetings
We value pooled funds daily and provide weekly commentary through our QV Weekly Update. We also prepare a Quarterly Portfolio Review Report for clients. The Portfolio Review Report includes:
- Account Performance
- Consolidated Asset Mix Analysis
- Portfolio Holdings
- Transaction Summary
- Market and Pooled Fund Commentaries
The Quarterly Review Reports are available in paper copy or electronically via the QV Investors secured client log-in site.
Tax slips are prepared annually by the custodian.
We encourage semi-annual meetings to review a client's requirements and account for our management. At minimum, we will hold annual meetings to review a client's portfolio and objectives.
