These simple words hide the complexity of what you are achieving. Calibrating the balance between focusing on your philanthropic aim of establishing a foundation, and the attainment and sustainability of growth required to achieve it, requires a delicate touch.

The relationship you cultivate with your client portfolio manager is crucial to managing these complementary goals. Guardian Capital Advisors is a deeply experienced manager with talented, accredited professionals who leverage all the internal and external resources at their disposal to build long-term, productive relationships.

"We follow a simple maxim in how we work – we sit on the same side of the table as our clients. The changing markets, evolving legislation and growing challenges of managing a foundation or non-profit requires a partnership approach to enable long-term success."
