QVest Announces Registration in Alberta

QVest is now registered to conduct business in the Province of Alberta

TORONTO, June 24, 2024 – Q Cantar Holdings Inc. ("QVest") today announces that effective June 7, 2024, QVest has been approved by its regulator, the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) to conduct business in the Province of Alberta.

Q Cantar Holdings Inc. (the firm) has been registered under the MI 11-102 (Passport System) in the category of Exempt Market Dealer (EMD) and Portfolio Manager (PM) in the province of Alberta.

As a registrant, the firm is subject to the reporting requirements under the United Nations Suppression of Terrorism Regulations and the Criminal Code and reporting requirements under the UN Act Sanctions for Iran and North Korea.

As QVest expands their services and investment offerings, QVest is focused on ensuring an appropriate qualified advisor to client ratio. QVest is at all times cognizant of their service offerings, service areas and our ability to offer a level of service above expectation. As such, QVest’s expanded registration will, in addition, allow for the expansion of qualified candidates as advisors in both the new and existing provinces of registration.

One of QVest’s areas of focus is on Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs), and the ability of our advisors to efficiently implement our portfolio strategies for our clients. We believe, QVest differs significantly enough from our peer group, where we have investment solutions that are not overly complicated, and more importantly, we have isolated a niche where a certain group of Canadians are underserviced.  With our easy-to-understand investment strategy, and simple implementation via SMAs, our target niche clients will find QVest a valued partner they should have met sooner.

Please contact one of our team members or connect directly with David Smith, QVest’s public relations officer who is the Head of Communications & Sales, for Private Wealth.
