Industry veteran Jon Kilfoyle will spearhead growth in firm’s platforms in Canada and the US
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."
At IG Wealth, Kilfoyle led the development of exclusive investment solutions for high-net-worth clients.
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.
