Canso Investment Counsel Ltd. provides portfolio management services to institutional and private investors. The Canso aircraft, our namesake, first flew in the 1930s. Over its many years of service it has earned a reputation for rugged reliability in both war and peace. Our focus on investment research and analysis might not be as exciting or popular at times as other ways of managing money. Like the legendary endurance and range of the Canso, it consistently adds value to our portfolios in the turbulence of the financial markets.
