The  Le Lievre Madill wealth management team has a combined experience of over 40 years. This experience has shown that, when an investment environment is constantly changing, the challenge is to find skilled partners who can help you achieve your goals while safe guarding your assets. In short, provide ongoing, innovative solutions that address financial issues relevant to you and your family. The Le Lievre Madill team is dedicated to building long-term relationships with our clients. Our goal is to help you build wealth, enjoy it, protect it and transfer it efficiently to your family and loved ones.


We are active managers. Our strategy is not to ride the waves of the market but to navigate them. We seek to add value through a grassroots approach to portfolio management. We build portfolios with individual stock and bond positions in discretionary and non-discretionary portfolios. We add value through insight into what we invest in and the ability to be tactical in changing environments. This approach allows us to be nimble in the preservation of capital in down markets and strategic when seeking growth in up markets. Ultimately this results in greater consistency in your returns and clarity into your financial well-being.

A focused approach aims to reduce volatility, rely less on broad market direction, and provide greater consistency.

We focus on investing in a portfolio of high-quality stocks and bonds that have a proven track record of delivering strong returns over time. Our team offers a transparent and effective investment approach that can help you maximize your returns while minimizing your risks. Our bespoke approach also allows us to manage portfolios uniquely to a client’s personal situation. For example: tax efficient strategies like shifting income streams from “interest only” to “capital gains focused” for better tax treatment.

By partnering with us, you can benefit from our expertise and experience in the investment industry. We work closely with you to understand your investment goals and help you build a personalized investment plan that aligns with your objectives.
