Integrated services for affluent Canadians
BDO Private Wealth is a leading advisor to wealthy individuals, families, and their businesses, both domestically and internationally. We focus on providing value-added services with complex tax planning requirements.
Private Wealth goes beyond personal tax planning to deliver overall tax optimization, including estate planning and intergenerational transfers, structuring asset ownership, investment holding companies, trusts, foundations, and partnerships. We frequently serve clients who have cross-border tax issues, including international investments. We also help manage personal situations, such as dual citizenships or families who have members living in multiple countries.
Our goal is to give our clients the reassurance that their wealth is compliant with the demands of tax authorities and global regulators and structured effectively for tax minimization and long-term preservation.
We are leading advisors to high and ultra-high net worth families with inherited wealth, business owners, corporate executives, family offices, and individuals in situations which may lead to substantial wealth.
We invest time getting to know our private clients to fully understand their objectives and build a personal, trusted relationship. We provide a comprehensive set of services and have a proven track record in handling complex situations.
