Howarth & Pasion Wealth Management Group

Our discovery and wealth management approach is driven by what matters most to you

  "There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it
and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself."
                Henry David Thoreau  

Our Wealth Management Team - Our Values and Guiding Principles

Family, happiness, health, integrity, loyalty, meaningful work, and relationships - these are our core values and guiding principles.  These are the values that we live by.

One of the most important lessons we learned as students and in life is that in order to become good at providing advice, one must not only listen to understand, but also recognize that everyone’s economic and life situation is unique.  Our primary objective is to remain relevant to you, our client, and keep you engaged so that we can have a meaningful dialogue to help you achieve what matters most.

Wealth management is more than portfolio management.  To do it well, and to do it properly, we have to address the four most important aspects of financial well-being:

  • Building Net Worth
  • Implement Tax-Efficient Strategies
  • Protecting What Matters
  • Leaving a Legacy
We take pride in knowing that we are your financial steward.  We will walk you through the 11 Wealth Considerations and guide you through the financial maze . From our very first meeting, we will identify your goals and objectives, provide you with a road map, coach you along the way and help to ensure you get to your destination, on time and on your terms.

Going beyond the financial picture

The distinct discovery process we use will take you through some behaviour questions and how you really make decisions. And when it's all done, a diagnostic using behavioural finance will take all that information, how we can work best with you and what the next steps are in creating your wealth strategy - prioritized by what matters to you. A wealth strategy which manages the important things like your retirement, your kid's education, your family cottage - not just your money.
