Discretionary Portfolio Management


Discretionary Portfolio Management

Through Axcess Capital Advisors Inc., I have a referral agreement in place with Accilent Capital Management Inc., and I can introduce clients to active portfolio management of publicly traded assets with low fees, hedging strategies, and sophisticated tools that Mark Taucar and his team utilize. Mark has an over 23-year track record of growing clients assets and most importantly protecting client’s money through turbulent markets.

A very large percentage of Canadians have their investments in passively managed money, often in mutual funds, individual stocks, ETF’s or Index funds. When markets are relatively stable these types of funds can perform well; however in extremely volatile markets and global recessions this type of management (passive) can result in significant losses.
For those of you working with a Portfolio Manager, when was the last time you had a discussion about your risk level and your goals? I can schedule a personal call with Mark to ensure that you are both comfortable with his style and also confident that you are making a wise decision on who is managing your money. Mark and his team currently have four portfolio mandates: Income, Conservative, Balanced and Growth.

Please reach out to me if you would like to discuss having Mark and his team manage a portion of your wealth. I will complete a thorough review of your financial plan and Accilent Capital always performs a comprehensive KYC (Know Your Client) interview as part of its onboarding process. (100k minimum)
