About Grayhawk

Grayhawk Wealth was founded in 2015 to empower our client’s wealth purpose and accelerate impact. We act as the Chief Investment Office (CIO) for Canada’s successful families and foundations.

Today we serve our clientele nationally, offering institutional quality investment portfolio curation with a relationship-first mindset. Our work is most meaningful when our clients feel how different it is to partner with us, and we support a path of purposeful wealth stewardship with profound impact across generations.

We designed Grayhawk to be a different kind of Chief Investment Office (CIO). One that delivers the experience clients were asking for. As a CIO, we offer our clients independent expertise and advice, with access to investment opportunities not typically available to private investors. We aim to provide a superior, long term, risk-adjusted return for our clients based on their wealth goals. And we fundamentally believe that it all starts with relationships built on trust.

Our team of professionals are all here because they believe in what we do – each with their own story about why our purpose matters to them. We value diversity and inclusion as an organization and are dedicated to growing our team with individuals who have varied perspectives and experiences.
