There are two things an advisory firm must master to excel. The first is to gain the trust and respect of its clients and advise them well. The second is to attract, develop and retain the best team. These two key elements are the cornerstones on which we built Valitas.
Our core team consists of some of the most esteemed and well-pedigreed experts in their respective fields. The members of our core and advisory teams have been connected for several years. In many cases, we have known each other for over 20 years. The team is drawn to Valitas out of mutual respect and shared values. We are convinced that together we offer unique skills and perspective to business owners in the Canadian mid-market.
