Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/03/2016 -- Description

The HNW Market In Canada is dominated by family business owners and expat clients drawn from Asia Pacific and the US. These busy owners prefer discretionary asset management and have little desire to try other options. As cautious investors they favor classic investments such as equities and bonds, investing little into less liquid assets such as property or commodities. Tax is a major issue for the domestic wealth market and a key driver for booking offshore.
