Our clients work with us for different reasons. Some choose us for our investment knowledge that comes from years of experience and extensive education. Others appreciate our attentiveness to their needs whenever they arise.

Here are a few examples of why clients trust us as their wealth management partner, and of the solutions we have developed for them.


 For years my husband and I put money away into RRSP’s but we were complete beginners when it came to any knowledge about retirement planning. When we met Chris and his team, that all changed for us. He got us on track with a plan and guided us with his professionalism and expertise. He is so knowledgeable about investing and made us feel very confident that we were on the right track and would be able to retire someday. We are over the moon happy to say that we are retiring next month!! If we didn’t have you working for us, we would have never known we could retire this early! Thank you, Chris to you and your team from the bottom of our hearts!

 After being offered a company package, Bill retired from the oil and gas industry. What to do with that package was the question, and we chose to work with Chris Thiessen of IG Private Wealth Management. Chris has been our financial planner these 15 years, and we worked with him to put together a long-term plan that worked for our goals. Chris caters to our wishes that he not bug us too often, and visits us in person once or twice a year as he loves coming to our town to get out of the big city once in a while. Chris is always eager to show us different financial options as we change "wishes and dreams" during each stage of our lives, and we are now working on the "what do we do when we hit 65" plan. Chris has kept us on track all these years and we are very grateful for our long-term business and personal relationship.

We consistently have done well with the returns on our funds through the years, thanks to his expertise. We appreciate and respect the research that IG Private Wealth Management puts into accessing for clients the best opportunities for us to invest wisely. We recommend IG Private Wealth Management without reservation.

 We began our financial journey with Chris Thiessen 12 years ago. Our children were young and Chris was willing to meet us at our home which we appreciated. Through the years Chris has educated, advised us, as well as shown himself to be reliable, accessible and knowledgeable. Growing up in traditional banking families we were hesitant to make the switch to a financial planner but working with Chris has been the right choice for our family.
