Advising significant wealth appropriately requires advisors who are committed to a high level of personal attention as well as to constant improvement of their professional knowledge and service skills. Team Besler excels in adding the kind of value you expect from a business relationship while clearly relating to your personal values and lifestyle. We have developed a culture of client service excellence that is rarely duplicated by our peers. We have termed this unique approach “Wealthcare” and strictly adhere to it’s core values:

1) Accessibility: We respect your time and the urgency of responding to your inquiries, therefore, we ensure our availability immediately upon your call 24-7 using advanced technology. Urgent email messages or voicemail messages will be returned within minutes. All investment advice will be presented to you through a personal conversation directly with Peter Besler.

3) Communication: We will take the time to clearly describe each of our investment recommendations to you in order that you may be comfortable with them. Then we will monitor your investments and contact you immediately if any change is required.

4) Review: We value your questions and comments and regard them as an opportunity to learn how we may further improve our services. In order to help us, we offer each of our clients an opportunity to provide us with an anonymous review of our services annually.

Each client is of equal importance to us and we do not differentiate our level of service based on account size.

Why Choose PETER BESLER

This philosophy is intended to improve the predictability of returns while reducing the corresponding level of risk. We deliver competitive advantages in all three major categories of the investing process:

Very few of our industry peers possess such diversified skill sets and our clients appreciate the value we add as a result of this distinction.

2) Diligence: In order to identify potential investments for our clients we draw on a wide variety of resources provided through our extensive network. This includes three teams of analysts and numerous contacts within the securities industry in Canada, USA and internationally. Should we require further due diligence, we will frequently contact management or visit the company’s plant or offices first hand. We are known to fly by helicopter to investigate natural resource opportunities in the Far North and break trail in the jungles of South America and Africa to verify potential new discoveries. You may be assured that we continuously gather all the relevant facts before making an investment recommendation. We strive to lower risk and increase return through accurate information.
