Harbourfront Wealth Management
Harbourfront wealth management embodies a philosophy of independent and unbiased advice with an unwavering commitment to deliver more financial independence for Canadians. The company is growing rapidly, including the addition of a senior recruitment professional to its Vancouver team to drive best in class recruiting processes, corporate development practices and mentorship as it continues to add advisory teams to its national footprint across Canada.
Founded by Danny Popescu in 2013, the firm started out with a $11 million personal investment and now has more than 270 employees and 28 locations across the country. The firm is also the parent company to a registered securities dealer/investment advisor servicing established advisors and their high net worth clients, an investment fund manager that specializes in managing sub-advised alternative investment funds as well as a US SEC Registered Investment Advisory firm.
Navigating Financial Success: How Harbourfront Wealth Management Can Help You
In addition to being employee-owned, one of the reasons Harbourfront has enjoyed such a rapid growth rate is its unique business model. In fact, it was one of the first to pioneer a more retail friendly approach to private securities that allows for greater diversification and access for non-accredited investors.
This approach is attracting more and more dealers who are seeking to “hitch their wagons” to the fast-growing Harbourfront. But the CEO is adamant that they’re in it for the long haul and won’t entertain any offers from anyone looking to “pounce” on the firm. “We’re going to be around for a long time and we don’t want to sell this thing for 10 years,” he says.
