Welcome to Cardinal Point Wealth Management


Canada and the U.S. have a strong and multifaceted relationship. The close ties and proximity has resulted in significant movement of people and assets.
How will a cross-border move to Canada or the U.S. affect my financial goals?

The short answer is that temporary and permanent cross-border movement enhances the complexity of investment management and financial planning. The primary cause for this situation is that investment accounts, real estate and other financial and physical assets have accumulated in both Canada and the U.S.
The reality when searching for advice

The overwhelming majority of Canadian advisors are solely authorized and qualified to provide advice on Canadian investment accounts or to a Canadian domiciled client. The opposite is applicable for U.S.-based advisors. Relocating without proper guidance often results in a disjointed financial plan. Further, it often leads to higher taxation, poor estate planning and enhanced financial risk. This is especially true when significant assets are located on both sides of the border.
Increasing need for cross-border specialists

A successful cross-border transition requires proper investment management and financial planning. Therefore, individuals and families with cross-border complexities should always partner with a qualified and experienced Canada-U.S. cross-border advisor.
