Our Story

In 1984, Ira Gluskin, Gerald Sheff and 24 private clients each put $1 million into our first equity portfolio model. By June 30, 2018, each $1 million investment in that portfolio model would have grown to $34 million versus $17.9 million for the S&P/TSX Total Return Index over the same period. 1

Thus started Gluskin Sheff’s focus on the high net worth private client, and the philosophy of Gluskin Sheff management and employees investing directly alongside our clients in the same portfolios.

Since then, Gluskin Sheff has grown from one portfolio model to a wealth management firm with a broad suite of investment strategies aimed at delivering prudent growth and effective diversification. We now offer equity, fixed income and alternative investment strategies as the building blocks of our clients’ customized investment portfolios. With the acquisition of Blair Franklin Asset Management in 2014, we added specialized knowledge and risk management capabilities in Canadian and global fixed income markets.

Our roots are embedded in our history of investing in under-followed and under-appreciated companies, and in discovering and acting upon yet-to-be-discovered investment themes. With the addition of David Rosenberg as Chief Economist & Strategist in 2009, we have a unique marriage between our economics team’s insightful top-down macroeconomic view and the bottom-up, security-specific analysis of our investment team.

Throughout our history, one thing has remained and always will remain constant: our unwavering long-term focus on providing strong, risk-adjusted returns to our clients.
