Who we are

Evans Investment Counsel is an independent, discretionary portfolio management firm based in Toronto, Canada. We are registered as a Portfolio Manager and Investment Fund Manager with the Ontario Securities Commission, and as a Portfolio Manager with the Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, PEI, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and Quebec Securities Commissions.

Our goal has not changed since the firm’s inception in 1988: We have always focused exclusively on preserving and growing the wealth of high net worth individuals, families, private foundations, and business owners.

Our formula is not complicated. It is our practice to stay the course and, when necessary, make unpopular decisions which we expect will result in great investments.

Our client base has grown steadily since we opened our doors in 1988. We manage assets for 295+ families, who together have over $1.4 billion invested with us. Our growth has primarily been achieved through client referrals and our network of professionals, such as lawyers and accountants, which reflects their trust and satisfaction in Evans Investment Counsel.

“As Buffett has often observed, value investing is not a concept that can be learned and gradually applied over time. It is either absorbed and adopted at once, or it is never truly learned.”
