Partnering to Improve Risk Adjusted Returns
Our business focus is on fund raising for highly regarded investment firms from Canada, the United States and Europe.
The Westfield team has more than 40 years of fund-raising experience. We have a strong understanding of alternative investment strategies. We also understand the challenges and opportunities on the asset and liability sides of Canadian institutional investor balance sheets.
Our approach is ‘relationship based’. We endeavor to understand the issues faced by investors that result from the ever-changing global investment landscape. We meet with investment professionals, initiate dialogue regarding issues and opportunities, and help develop effective investment solutions. Once a potential solution has been identified, we introduce the appropriate investment strategy and firm.
Westfield Partners is always searching for investment firms that utilize innovative investment strategies and have scalable investment disciplines. We regularly monitor the key business and performance metrics of the investment firms we work with, to ensure they are meeting established standards for compliance, investment process, consistency, performance and key employee turnover.
At $2 trillion in size, Canada is the 4th largest defined benefit pension market in the world, made up of more than 1500 pension plans, plus many benefit trusts, endowments, foundations and insurance companies, scattered across this vast area of diversified cultures, climate and languages. We understand this market. We know the key people. We travel Canada extensively.
