Why Are We Different?


Fewer stocks, deeper analysis

There are extremely few companies in the world that meet our exacting criteria for growth and quality. This means that we are concentrating our analytical efforts on a small number of stocks and allows us to immerse ourselves fully in the fundamentals of each business over extended periods of time. We aim to build the highest possible confidence that an investee company is of extremely high quality, will maintain strong growth rates over a long period of time and is not overvalued in relation to its fundamentals at the time of investment.

The best of both worlds

GuardCap's parent company has assets under management or administration of over C$44 billion (as of December 31, 2016), and a corporate securities portfolio of over C$636 million, giving GuardCap access to the resources of a company which is significantly larger than itself. With GuardCap you have the advantage of working with a boutique firm and access to the full resources and support of a larger, publicly-traded company (Toronto Stock Exchange: GCG, GCG.A).

Getting the best from the best people

Guardian Capital, GuardCap's parent company, is distinguished by the long tenure of its key investment staff. GuardCap's approach to remuneration and incentive is designed to ensure the long-term alignment of our portfolio managers' interests with those of our clients.


Investment Philosophy

We believe that high-quality, growing companies purchased at attractive valuations are the key to long-term investment success. We are not a typical value manager or growth manager. We generate our alpha in a different way.

Our Philosophy

Investment Strategies

Our flagship global equity strategy and two emerging market equity strategies are bound by a singular commitment to disciplined, deep research and analysis. Growth is part of what we look for, but the emphasis is on the quality of growth.
