Proven Conservative Investment Strategy

The basis of our investment philosophy stands the test of time. Our clients have the wisdom of an investment strategy that has been effective since the 1920's. We take a conservative, equity-based approach focusing on dividend growth and solid earnings performance. Our portfolios consist of a diversified selection of stocks, bonds and exchange-traded funds. We discuss strategy daily and we meet formally to discuss ideas and evaluate current holdings and opportunities.

Customized Advice

We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our clients' portfolio specifically to individual risk tolerance and financial objectives. We determine the appropriate mix of assets based on a detailed understanding of our clients' needs. Through this process we set up an Investment Policy Statement that guides investment decisions. This is an ongoing process, and through regular communication, client asset mixes adapt based on personal and market conditions.

Unbiased Professional Advice

Mackie Research Capital is one of Canada's largest full service independent investment firms and is entirely employee owned. We are proud shareholders of our firm and we feel that this is the best environment to offer our clients truly unbiased investment advice. Because MRCC is an independent firm, clients can rest assured that our advice and business dealings will be strictly in their best interests. All of our decisions are based on providing the optimal portfolio for our clients.

Simple, Transparent Low Cost/Low Fee solutions

We have a simple transparent fee schedule and we aim to align our interests with those of our clients. As portfolio managers, we offer managed accounts and also retail commission based solutions, to suit the needs of you and your family.

Social Awareness

The Andras Group puts service first and foremost as can be seen not only with our involvement with the investment business, but in our charitable pursuits. We are active members in many service organizations such as the Rotary Club of Toronto. We have established a foundation that we donate a percentage of all management fees and commissions toward. Our founding member, K.B. Andras believed strongly that with privilege comes responsibility and we have always run our business affairs with that as our guiding principle.

Clients can count on their needs being met and their questions answered promptly and professionally. There will always be a member of the Andras Group available during office hours.
