Our Investment Approach

We take a prudent approach to investing, ensuring that we invest your funds across many markets, properly diversified amongst asset classes for the long term, and based on the best empirical research available.

Asset Classes

Asset classes are the fundamental building blocks of a portfolio. Your asset mix will take into account your time horizon, risk tolerance and other relevant personal/financial circumstances.


Creating your customized portfolio is only the starting point of a successful investment strategy. Every step of the way, Nest Wealth will ensure you are working towards your stated financial goals.

Fee Structure

Management Fees: Your management fee ranges from $10 a month to $150 per portfolio (client ID) that you hold with us. This fee is for portfolio management and service activities offered by Nest Wealth.

Underlying Management Expense Ratio (MERs): The investments held in your portfolio (ETFs and/or Pooled funds) have a built-in cost charged by the companies managing them. Our passive ETFs MERs range from 0.06% to 0.37%.

Currency Exchange: When we buy or sell US dollars to trade ETFs in your CAD accounts, the custodians charge an additional fee to the exchange/conversion rate used.

Other Custodial Fees: When you open an account through Nest Wealth, your account is held with one of two custodians (NBIN or FCC). During account opening, you will receive additional information about the custodian fees in effect as of this time for other day-to-day administrative requests that can arise.

What Is An ETF?

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund traded on a stock exchange (like a stock), but holds a basket of investments (like a mutual fund). Most ETFs track broad, well-established indices like the S&P 500 or TSX. ETFs are a low-cost and efficient way to build a diversified investment portfolio. They allow you to gain exposure to a variety of asset classes like bonds, equities and real estate.*

Financial Advisors IPad and financial Dashboard

“I’m very pleased with the transition and transfer of my business to Nest Wealth. Their strong competitive advantages include their ability to seek timely solutions, the high-quality support team ensuring client service issues are sorted out with the custodian, and the excellent, easy-to-use client and advisor interfaces. The sign-in as a client feature is first in class compared to the competition.

The RazorPlan financial planning tool is excellent. I find it beneficial to include this in my client service level offering. I use it to project retirement income and to present life insurance sales opportunities. I’m looking forward to having the comfort of a reliable and competent solution for my wealth management business.”
