Private Banking

The personalized, attentive and discreet service you've earned.

As a Private Banking client you'll experience our personalized, attentive and discreet service, designed to cater to your banking and borrowing needs accurately and efficiently, saving you time and effort.

The customary banking services – chequing and savings accounts, loans and lines of credit – are all provided. What sets us apart is our ability to help you on an entirely different level.

It's likely you've wanted to act on an investment opportunity but, with equity wrapped up in your home, investments and insurance, accessing your money was complex, time-consuming, even frustrating. One of the key differentiators of our Private Banking offering is the ability to provide you with customized solutions designed to facilitate building wealth.

Our customized credit solutions are developed through a clear understanding of the opportunity drawing on a combination of personal and commercial credit structures.

You may be considering the purchase of a new vacation property, sailboat or family vehicle. You may have discovered an exceptional investment property and time is of the essence. Or perhaps you're looking to finance major home renovations or your children's post-secondary education. Whatever goals you have and outlays you need to make, we're here to try to help you make them, unhindered by inopportune timing related to investment maturities or compensation. Our Private Banking products and services are designed to help you obtain the credit and liquidity you need, when you need it, to fit your lifestyle.

Working with a team of credit specialists and your external tax professionals, your relationship manager will work to facilitate your borrowing needs to provide tailored lending solutions designed to meet the demanding requirements of complex structures. Whether those include leveraging multiple asset classes or availing of loans in multiple currencies to achieve the preservation of foreign exchange strategies, we strive to deliver innovative borrowing solutions.
