Soucy-Caron-Levesque Team

Mission

As investment advisors, our job is to listen to your needs so we can help you make smart, informed decisions. We value transparency and integrity, helping you optimize your portfolio through sound asset diversification and tax-advantaged investments.

Investment Philosophy

We take every necessary precaution to ensure your assets are secure, by advocating an investment philosophy based on the highest standards of professional investment management practised by major institutional investors. The two pillars of this investment philosophy are capital preservation and the tax treatment of non-registered accounts.

What sets us apart

What distinguishes us is the objectivity we bring to the recommendations we make. We offer our clients a prudent and conservative approach based on sound asset allocation and adequate diversification of investment portfolios by selecting top-quality securities. This proven professional approach has led Gaétan Soucy to being a member since 2009 of the Desjardins Securities President's Circle, a distinction marking the outstanding contribution of some of our firm's investment advisors.

Dedicated to their community

We’ve been actively involved in the community for a long time. Here are some of the causes we support:

  • Vitae Foundation
  • La Maison Aube-Lumière
  • Blé d'Or, cuisines collectives
  • Leucan – Estrie
  • Fondation de recherche en administration de l’Université de Sherbrooke (FRAUS)
  • Ensemble vocal Odyssea
  • La Cordée, ressource alternative en santé mentale

Values

We help you make smart, informed decisions about your personal finances and investments, guided by our values of skill, experience, professionalism, integrity and transparency.

Service Offer

We recommend personalized investment strategies based on your specific investment objectives, investor profile, risk tolerance and tax and financial situation.

As part of our comprehensive approach, we establish your financial profile, prepare a retirement income projection, allocate assets in your portfolio based on your tax situation and optimize the type of investment income and finally, choose the right retirement income strategies for you.

We do this primarily by recommending fee-based compensation for our professional services (e.g., the Darwin program and Elite program from Desjardins Securities, etc.).

As full-service investment advisors, we’re able to provide you with access to the full range of financial products (money market securities, bonds and debentures, common and preferred shares, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), structured products, mutual funds, etc.).
