Beyond Stocks and Bonds

To minimize the inevitable ups and downs that come with a reliance on the stock market, our conservative yet innovative approach to investing includes additional alternative asset classes such as private equity, mortgages, private debt, and institutional-grade real estate.

Historically Consistent & Stable Returns

Nicola Wealth vs The Marketplace

A Track Record of Stability

Through two major market downturns, Nicola Wealth has kept clients safely on track to reach their financial objectives through our conservative, yet innovative approach to investment management.

The 2001 Dot Com Bust

When the Tech Bubble burst, Nicola Wealth’s diversified cash flow approach eased volatility, mitigating losses versus the public markets and helping investors recover sooner, allowing clients to accelerate their wealth building.

The 2008 Sub-Prime Crash

While 2008’s financial crisis sent public markets tumbling, Nicola Wealth’s extensive diversification buoyed our clients’ portfolios, protected the downside, and participated in the recovery from a stronger position.

$1-million invested with Nicola Wealth since January 1, 2000 would have grown to $4.22-million versus $2.69-million for a typical balanced portfolio (Morningstar Canadian Neutral Balanced).

Over that same period, Nicola Wealth’s Composite Return has been 6.98% vs. 4.75% for the typical balanced portfolio.

Performance figures for each account are calculated using time weighted rate of returns on a daily basis. The Composite returns are calculated based on the asset-weighted monthly composite constituents based on beginning of month asset mix and include the reinvestment of all earnings as of the payment date. Composite returns are as follows:

  •  1 yr – 2.96%
  • 3 yr – 7.61%
  • 5 yr – 6.12%
  • 10 yr – 5.90%
  • Since Inception – 7.02%
