Widely regarded in the investment advisory industry as an exceptional ‘ideas’ man, in addition to bringing an unusual degree of creativity to his investment advisory work, Michael is a strong believer in the principle of total wealth management. He regards the creation of high performance client portfolios as one of several building blocks necessary to create a robust foundation for the steady and systematic accumulation of wealth.

Michael began his career with McLeod, Young, Weir in 1984, where he ran their Mutual Fund desk in Toronto. He relocated to Calgary with ScotiaMcLeod in 1989, founding H & L Capital with Hugh in 1992. Michael coordinates the share purchase programs for each of our groups and, equally important, he directs the personal investment side of our business.

Married with two sons, Michael’s stated – but rarely realized – ambition is to golf 50 days a year and ski 50 days a year. He likes travel and continues to cultivate the innumerable longstanding relationships with friends, contacts and clients in the business community, several of which have been with him since his early days at MYW.

He is a Member of the ScotiaMcLeod Chairman’s Council.
