Formed in 2003, STYLUS operated for the preceding years as the in-house investment department of its former parent company C.P.M.S. Computerized Portfolio Management Services Inc.

Unique Value Proposition

STYLUS is a performance-oriented investment firm with the objective to generate superior returns for its clients based on their individual needs and goals. STYLUS has always remained true to the guiding principles that have made it successful:

Active Management
Markets are inefficient for structural and behavioural reasons. This creates attractive opportunities for investors who can identify and exploit these inefficiencies. STYLUS’ quantitative framework for making buy and sell decisions ensures that reason rather than emotion prevails in all of its investment decisions.

Focus on Personal Service
We meet regularly with our clients to review their investments with us as well as produce timely market reports. Clients also have direct access to the investment team and the opportunity for comprehensive personal financial planning advice.

Alignment of Interests
Our team members are the largest investors in our funds. Our money is invested alongside our clients.

Discipline and Proof
We use a proprietary investment discipline for stock analysis and selection and regularly demonstrate to clients the consistency of our approach. We believe it is important to offer proof that we are fulfilling our investment mandates and that we are not straying from our stated portfolio styles.

Fee Structure
Our basic management fees are low. We earn additional performance fees only when we generate superior returns for our clients.
