Culture at EdgePoint Wealth Management 

EdgePoint is investment-led – meaning, no sales and marketing department – just investments. All its employers are owners or, as they call themselves, internal partners or “EdgePointers”.  They are given an opportunity to buy shares at EdgePoint to further instill that “owner’s mindset” in everyone who works there. 

Edgepoint Wealth Management's employees are passionate about helping their clients achieve their financial goals. They are committed to providing their clients with the best possible service, and they are always looking for ways to improve the firm's products and services. 

Because EdgePoint is investment-led, they publish figures that matter most to investors. They don’t share assets under management figures unless needed. What they do share is how much they’ve saved their investors in lower fees: around $145 million as at 2022. 

About Edgepoint Wealth Management CEO Patrick Farmer

Farmer is passionate about leading an investment company that focuses on nothing but investments. No bells and whistles. He and his partners believe that investment firms should be run by investment professionals. And that still holds true for EdgePoint, from 2008 until today.
