Wealth Preservation and Creation

At Mandeville, we are committed to the preservation of wealth for our clients. We understand that significant wealth is traditionally lost by future generations. Our Advisors are devoted to working with families to safeguard the successful intergenerational transfer of wealth via quality due diligence and principled investing.

The Wealthy Invest Differently. At Mandeville we understand this and have made it our mission to provide ACCESS to investment opportunities both within the public and private realm that are typically reserved for the affluent and institutional investor.

Our Strength and Global Reach

As a client of the Mandeville group of companies, you will have ACCESS to the benefits of our family office resources (via Portland Holdings Inc.’s conglomeration), which means you will have the unique opportunity to invest in the high quality offerings alongside some of the world’s most successful institutions and affluent investors.

Private Investing

The largest and most successful institutional investors in the world (i.e.: Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and the Yale Endowment Fund) as well as the world’s wealthiest families create true lasting wealth by investing in a mix of both public and private investments.

Our goal is to democratize these private investment opportunities for wealth creation, and where appropriate, provide our clients with the same investment techniques used by ultra high net worth and institutional investors.

We encourage our Advisors to independently seek the best and most suitable investment opportunities for their clients. We also provide them with exclusive ACCESS to high quality investments that their clients won’t find anywhere else.
