Our Investment Opportunities


Investment Approach

We offer a broad opportunity set across asset classes, global geographic regions and managers because in our experience, we found this to be the best way to preserve and grow your assets. For your portfolio, we consider your family and your goals and needs, and give you a customized investment portfolio with access to global expertise.

David L. Donabedian

Chief Investment Officer, CIBC Private Wealth Management

“A guiding principle of our investment offerings to our clients is: Would we buy this for ourselves? This is particularly true for our internal, proprietary strategies, which are based on what we believe is differentiated expertise inside the firm. All internal strategies must meet a high bar for the competition within their investment categories. Because we combine that standard with the breadth of knowledge on our Multi-Manager Investment Team, which researches global external managers across a wide range of asset classes, we have something unique and incredibly strong.” CONTACT DAVE
