Portfolio Manager Toronto Office
Robin Barstow has been an investment professional for more than 20 years, working with private investors, non-profits and small institutions to help them manage their funds. His range of expertise includes traditional portfolios of stocks and bonds and discretionary wealth management.
In addition to RRSPs, RRIFs, RESPs and TFSAs, Robin can help you build a portfolio designed to generate monthly income to fund retirement and tailor investments to meet your specific needs.
“The best part of my job is sitting down with my clients and working with them to review, discuss and plan their investments,” he says. “I’ve been doing this long enough that I’m now working with the children and their families of some of the clients I started with in the early 1990s. That’s very satisfying.”
Robin studied journalism at Carleton University in Ottawa and worked as a business reporter for more than 10 years before joining the investment industry. He has the Chartered Investment Manager (CIM) and Fellow, Canadian Securities Institute (FCSI) designations.
Outside of work, Robin is active with several community groups. In his spare time, he likes to ski, swim, cycle, play tennis and walk his golden retriever Maggie. He has been married to his wife Patricia for more than 20 years and his two daughters are in their early 20s and starting their independent lives.
