Referral Services

DISCLAIMER……….As a Financial Planner at Worldsource Financial Management Inc. I may facilitate access to Separately Managed Accounts offered by WFM Partner Portfolio Managers who may provide discretionary investment management services to the interested clients. After referral is completed you must decide for yourself if the Portfolio Manager is appropriate to provide the services for you. The Portfolio Manager will provide all ongoing advice to you as it relates to your assets invested with the Portfolio Manager and will be responsible for the operation of your managed account. The information below is general in nature and describes some of the benefits of discretionary investment management services.

In a Separately Managed Account (SMA) the individual investor owns the invested assets directly in his/her name. Like the name suggest, accounts are separately managed by a licensed portfolio manager on a discretionary basis. Until recently, minimum investment requirements of $1 million placed the services of these money managers well out of reach of the average investor.

Similar to mutual funds in that a money manager develops a model portfolio specializing in a particular aspect of the market (such as large-cap, growth, small-cap or value) and purchases or sells securities in an effort to generate positive returns. The key difference between mutual funds and separate accounts is that, in a separate account, the money manager is purchasing the securities in the portfolio on behalf of the investor, not on behalf of the fund.

Some of the key benefits include;

Individual Cost Base

While mutual and pooled funds can have some notable diversification attributes, the structure of these pooled investments means that you also share the tax base of the people in the pool. This can lead to unexpected taxes being triggered, regardless whether the fund value has gone up or down since an investor acquired it.

In separately managed accounts, your cost base is just that – your own. Therefore you will know and can plan for taxable events when you have a separately managed account.

Fee Deductibility

In Canada, where fees are charged to a non-registered separately managed account, the fees can be deducted from any source of income. In the case of high-income earners this can reduce the net cost by almost 50%!

Customized Risk/Reward

No two investors are exactly the same. Most have different expectations of return, the risk they are prepared to assume and even the amount of cash flow they may require from their portfolio. A separately managed account by definition allows them to have each of these factors set to meet their own expectations.

Individual Reporting

Most of us want to know what our return has been on investments in order to see if the results will lead to our individual goals.  A separately managed account shows the precise return on investments because it is your Separately Managed Account.

There are a number of options available to the client, but we primarly deal with the following companies.
