About Us - Lorem Ipsum Dolor Sit Amet

Attentive & Analytical

Attentive, accessible and easy to talk to, we believe that our deeply sympathetic personal approach to investment and wealth management cements relationships, solves problems, ensures understanding, resolves conflicts, improves accuracy, builds consensus, and gets results.

What we do, and the way that we do it, is diagnostic, analytical and insightful. Through a forensic and continuing discovery process we develop a deep understanding of your goals, immediate, medium and long-term. We ask a lot of questions. We avoid shortcuts.


Investment Management

Investment management stands at the heart of our business. We are, above all, investment specialists. Our objective is to generate consistent returns, with less volatility, over the course of our clients' investment time horizon.

Investment success is determined by the strategies we work with you to pursue and your ability to remain resolute and focused. We have an extensive understanding of both traditional and alternative investments and we consider our clients as long-term allies whose interests are aligned with our own.


The Strength of TD Wealth

We operate within TD Wealth, part of the TD Bank Group, with 25 million customers worldwide, 85,000 employees, and CDN $1.2 trillion in assets under management. Through Bayswater Group, you enjoy access to the industry’s most highly regarded investment analysts, economists and market strategists.

Accordingly, our investment portfolios are most suitable for accredited investors. We advise individuals and families who meet one of the following criteria: Investable assets exceeding $1,000,000. Net worth exceeding $5,000,000. Personal income exceeding $200,000. Combined income exceeding $300,000.

Our Services - A Comprehensive Approach

Investment and portfolio advice represent only part of the services delivered by the Bayswater Group.

We subscribe to the principle of total wealth management, and we look at the financial affairs of our clients comprehensively. Though vitally important, investment and portfolio management represent only a few of the services we offer.

What follows is a summary of those services, each of which are deployed to meet the specific, defined objectives of every individual client we advise.

  • Investment planning
  • Financial planning
  • Retirement planning
  • Legacy creation
  • Business succession advice
  • Private banking solutions
  • Portfolio management
  • Tax minimization & insurance strategies
  • Estate & trust strategies
  • Intergenerational wealth transfer
  • Customized credit
  • Philanthropic planning

Bayswater Group acts for individuals and families, executives and professionals, business owners and entrepreneurs, pre-retirees and retirees, charitable organizations, and estates and trusts.

We welcome the opportunity to act for young professionals who, while they may not yet meet the high-net-worth financial threshold, seem in our view destined to do so.

Our client conversations always center on long term goals, not the cost of buying or selling stocks. Our fee, calculated as a percentage of your assets, includes investment and financial planning services. If there is a need to hold investment solutions with embedded fees, we will ensure those fees are discussed and known to you. We believe in full transparency.

Value of Assets Fee Percentage
$1,000,000 - $1,999,999 1.00%
$2,000,000 - $4,999,999 0.75%
$5,000,000 - $24,999,999 0.50%
$25,000,000 - $49,999,999 0.40%
> $50,000,000 0.30%

Our Specialisms - Premium Level of Management

Private Investment Management

Private Investment Management is a premium level of wealth management designed to free you from the day-to-day details of managing your wealth.

It is an advisor-managed account where you delegate responsibility for day-to-day investment decisions to an accredited portfolio manager.

Please ask Bill Jaffe or Ryan Ormerod about this important discretionary service.


Commitment to Community

Our investment philosophy is simple. It is to preserve, protect and build wealth. But we regard wealth as a means to an end, not the end itself. What wealth enables us to do with our lives is of paramount importance – for us and for our clients.

We live, work, and play in this community. Giving back is very important to the people behind the Bayswater Group. We enthusiastically provide financial and hands-on support to a wide range of local charitable organizations.


Women & Wealth

Bayswater Group have a solid and expanding percentage of high net worth female clients, including professionals, executives and business owners, both married and single.

We recognize the unique relationship women have with their money. As a result, we are able to advise them in a manner consistent with their distinctive expectations and goals.

Louise Fry leads our practice in this area. It aligns with several initiatives with which she is currently involved, both within TD Bank Group and personally.

Louise is a committee member for Women in Leadership (WIL) and Women of Wealth (WOW+). These are both TD Bank Group supported initiatives focused on the recruitment and development of top female talent. Louise also volunteers as a mentor with the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs.

Women have long been relegated to the sidelines of the financial services sector, where advisers have traditionally focused on men and their money. Now the tables are turning and wealth managers face an unprecedented transformation as more women outlive their spouses, hold an increasing share of jobs and take greater control over family finances.
