Robitaille Group accréditation excellence

Excellence Accreditation

Excellence accreditation attests that the investment advisor's practice meets the highest standards of quality in order to offer you an unparalleled experience in meeting your financial needs. This distinction is awarded exclusively to Desjardins Securities investment advisors who participate in a continuous development and improvement program.

The Robitaille Group provides a full range of professional services in investment management as well as an array of wealth management services.

Our model portfolios are devised to meet the needs of affluent investors who, rather than manage their assets on their own, prefer to entrust full responsibility to us.


Our mission consists of guiding our clients toward fulfilling their long-term financial goals by offering them advice and services to fit their situation.

When we invest for our clients, we manage risk just as we would do so for ourselves.

Investment Philosophy

Prudence and stability characterize our management. Based on a long-term view, we adopt a strategy that is clearly thought out, and we remain focused, never straying off course.

We aim for faster capital growth than the benchmark indices while limiting risk. This philosophy suggests holding quality stocks at reasonable prices for extended periods as well as holding index funds. This leads to lower volatility and helps avoid the tax charges that often stem from frequent trading.

What sets us apart

A strong team, distinctive investment solutions, with peace of mind assured

Passionate, attentive and devoted, we help you fulfil your long-term goals by offering you pertinent advice and top-of-the-line wealth management services. Our strategic, rigorous and disciplined approach earns us frequent expressions of satisfaction. Our clients also appreciate our ethical concern and our transparency, which inspire trust.

We pay close attention to financial and economic news, and we spare no effort in guiding you in the optimization of your investments.


Profitability and performance

We believe in the importance of investing in profitable companies that show positive balance sheets. These well performing companies, always a wise investment, provide strong growth potential. We see this as the most sensible way to invest on the stock market, and we avoid stocks of only fleeting attraction.

Rigour and reflection

Based on our own criteria, we analyze recommendations from the various sources to which we have access. In our view, the best way of avoiding errors consists of applying a rigorous selection method combined with independent thinking on economic issues.

A distinctive and transparent offer

We build unique portfolios to meet the needs of our mostly affluent clients. Our distinctive offer changes constantly to offer a wider range of strategies. Our fee-based rate structure is transparent and fits our clients’ needs.

A long-term process

Our long-term investment process and our objectivity help let our clients gain from market volatility. In our view, the times when everyone is afraid to invest are when the best opportunities arise.

Ethical choices 

Beyond standards and regulations, there are ethics. We take no action that is not clearly understood by our clients and is not to their advantage. We do not buy speculative stocks, and we protect our clients’ room for manoeuvre by favouring investments unencumbered by exit fees.
