About assante

When you choose an Assante Wealth Management advisor, you are joining a national success story.

Established in 1995, Assante has since become one of the largest Canadian professional services firms in wealth management, supporting over 850 advisors who oversee approximately $43 billion of Canadian’s family wealth under their care.

In 2003, Assante was purchased by CI Financial Corp. – a diversified wealth management firm and the third-largest investment fund company in Canada – bringing additional financial strength and resources to the Assante organization. Since becoming a public company in 1994, CI has been one of the best-performing securities on the S&P/TSX Composite Index.

You can feel secure knowing that your financial needs are being looked after by an Assante advisor. Our advisors, on average, administer almost twice the assets of advisors at other major independent firms. That’s a powerful indication of their proficiency – and the trust they have earned from their clients.

With access to a wealth of tools and resources, our advisors and their clients are supported by the exceptional investment management team and wealth planning group available through our sister company, CI Investments Inc., and Assante Private Client, a division of CI Private Counsel LP.

Our core values of integrity, passion and professionalism drive our business. It’s through our all-encompassing approach, which offers a comprehensive and integrated range of services and advice that your Assante advisor can partner with you to tailor a strategy that meets your unique needs and simplifies and enhances your financial well-being.

  • I have been extremely pleased in working with the Legacy Family Office team. They are professional, attentive to all of the details, and have worked hard to understand my family’s particular needs across the extended family. They see broadly and can also drill down to get done what needs doing. They have assisted with Trust matters, estate planning, business needs, philanthropic planning, and more. I can trust them to do an excellent job.

    Rosemary and Family
  • [They are] never high-pressure salespeople, but look at our individual needs. I like having planners who know us and know our situation.

    Jim and Phyllis
  • I know so many families where only one person manages the finances. Having Legacy Family Office both involved and taking care of your entire family has been vital to building our legacy. I don’t know what we would’ve done without their guidance and support (over the last 5 years).

    Naomi & Family
  • Legacy has assisted yet another generation of our family by providing investment, inheritance and property planning for our mother at a time when she was very much in need of help.

    Colin and Catherine
  • Since we began working with the Legacy Family Office team nearly 5 years ago, through holding family meetings with our children and working with us to understand our needs, they helped us navigate the transition of selling our business, and then identified potential issues regarding our estate planning and family legacy. As a result, we were able to head off these issues so that they never became a problem. We sincerely value their care, wisdom, and guidance in looking after our family.

    Sid & Lyn
  • I can live my retirement relaxing in the knowledge that I am in really good hands.

    Muriel
  • We are so glad we began working with Legacy Family Office two years ago. They walked us through some tough questions and immediately identified – and addressed – significant gaps in our financial lives. Less than a year later, Geoff was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer. Without their help to put a proper Financial Plan in place and see it through, our business and personal finances may have taken a hit that would’ve taken years to recover from.

    Geoff & Asa
  • Legacy’s main role has been as a mediator between the four partners of the company. The dynamics within the family-owned business differ greatly from most other companies, and Legacy advisors understand that.

    Leo, Frank, Carl, and Conny
  • Over 25 years of working with Legacy Family Office has given us the confidence to make informed decisions that have seen us succeed through all of life’s transitions, including moving on from our professional business lives into an amazing retirement where we are living the life we’d always dreamed of – without worry.
