Jimmy’s investment philosophy is highly influenced by his years working for a global investment bank in San Francisco, where he advised institutional money managers, responsible for allocating billions of dollars of investable assets, on U.S., Canadian and global stock selection. He regularly held meetings with C-suite corporate executives (many CEOs and CFOs of Fortune 500 companies) that generated investing ideas for his clients. He was also instrumental during the campaigns for companies about to go public with their IPO.
In particular, Jimmy believes that within the large universe of North American companies, we can identify high-quality investments available for purchase at a discount to their intrinsic value or investments that may generate attractive income for clients. Strong management teams with a long-term commitment to excellence are an essential ingredient to Jimmy’s idea of what makes a suitable company in which to invest. Above all, Jimmy is dedicated to offering each client his best, personalized advice; to that end, he is committed to investing his own money in the companies he recommends.
Competence, character, communication and attention to detail are the backbone of great service, and that is what Jimmy aims to deliver consistently. Moreover, whether your goal is to preserve or grow capital, provide for future retirement or education expenses or generate current income, Jimmy works with a team of Financial Planners at Odlum Brown Financial Services Limited* to create a bespoke solution for his clients.
