Wellington-Altus hire's IG Wealth's high-net-worth expert

Wellington-Altus has added strength to its leadership team with the hire of an investment industry veteran.

Jon Kilfoyle, most recently senior vice-president of investments at IG Wealth, joins the Winnipeg-headquartered asset manager as executive vice-president of products and platforms.

He will leverage his 20+ years of expertise to focus on elevating the Wellington-Altus suite of products and oversee its Canadian and US platforms as president of Wellington-Altus Asset Management Inc. and Wellington-Altus USA Inc.

"Wellington-Altus is extremely fortunate to hire someone of Jon's pedigree," says Shaun Hauser, founder & CEO of Wellington-Altus. "The right person, at the right time in our continued ascent as an industry-leading business focused on providing our advisors cutting edge platforms and products in the Canadian wealth management landscape."

High-net-worth clients

At IG Wealth, Kilfoyle led the development of exclusive investment solutions for high-net-worth clients.

Previously, he held various senior leadership positions within the wealth management industry at Wellington West Capital Inc., National Bank Financial, and RBC Dominion Securities.

Wellington-Altus was founded in 2017 and has since grown to a $20 billion AUM business with entrepreneurial advisors, portfolio managers, and high-net-worth clients.

Kilfoyle says he was attracted to the firm’s collaborative culture.

"I am joining Wellington-Altus to stand up and take action with this country's elite collection of entrepreneurial advisors who value freedom and a platform committed to putting their clients first," he said.
