Wealth Preservation and Creation

At Mandeville, we are committed to the preservation of wealth for our clients. We understand that significant wealth is traditionally lost by future generations. Our Advisors are devoted to working with families to ensure successful intergenerational wealth preservation via due diligence and principled investing.

The Wealthy Invest Differently. At Mandeville we understand this and have made it our mission to provide ACCESS to investment opportunities both within the public and private realm that are typically reserved for the affluent and institutional investor.

Our Strength and Global Reach

As a client of the Mandeville group of companies, you will have ACCESS to the benefits of our family office resources (via Portland Holdings Inc.’s conglomeration), which means you will have the unique opportunity to invest in the high quality offerings alongside some of the world’s most successful institutions and affluent investors.

Our Investor Role Models

Making Clients Wealthy is the Mandeville mission and as such, we have identified the world’s most successful wealth creators as our investor role models. The world’s most wealthy investors like Warren Buffett and the large pension funds have successfully created wealth for generations.

What is their Recipe?

Our role models create lasting wealth by investing in a mix of both public and private investments, applying a sound investment framework and controlling their emotions.


The Mandeville Difference

At Mandeville, our goal is to democratize private investment opportunities for wealth creation, and where appropriate, provide our clients with the same investment techniques used by our role models. We have determined that there is a common set of principles and behaviours used by our role models to create wealth and our Advisors have this framework in mind when working with you to position your portfolio for optimal wealth creation.

For more information on our investment methodology and framework for wealth creation, see the Mandeville Owner’s Manual.
