The Lacasse Paré Bédard Team, building on solid ground!

A team committed to serving you, consisting of François Lacasse, David Paré and Vincent Bédard.


Being our clients’ primary partner in fulfilling their financial goals through a human and personalized approach marked by great affinity.

Investment Philosophy

We favour a fundamental approach. Stock analysis helps achieve risk management and long-term growth. Financial strength, earnings growth, business prospects, quality of the management team and share value are among the criteria that influence stock selection. We reduce risk by setting minimum and maximum weightings for each asset class and each economic sector.

What sets us apart

We offer our clients continuous affinity and guidance in their decision-making and in the fulfilment of their financial goals.

Through transparency, accessibility and personalized service, we build a relationship of long-term trust with our clients.


  • Transparency: to build a relationship based on trust
  • Ethics and rigour: leaving northing to chance
  • Respect: for your plans and your ideas
  • Attentiveness: to understand you clearly
  • Affinity: for a long-term business relationship

Service Offer

What we offer are strategies, not products.

We hold the view that meeting your financial goals starts by developing a financial plan. We therefore offer you a structured approach that gives you a clear view of your financial position.

When it comes to investment, we provide our clients with a logical framework that lets them avoid having their decisions dictated by emotion. We always bear in mind that we are investors, not speculators.

We choose to invest only in what we know well. This gives us better risk control.
