Altervest Logo


Founded in 2010, Altervest applies its expertise in alternative investment strategies.

The aim is to offer high quality products focused on capital preservation while maintaining attractive returns.

Based in Montreal, our investment management firm hopes to contribute to developing the skills of our local portfolio managers.

Our Vision

Altervest seeks to be recognised as leader in the development of innovative yet conservative alternative investment strategies. Altervest also wants to help develop our local community by promoting and supporting local emerging managers. We want to make the world know that Canada is a prime place to hire portfolio managers. 


At Altervest we believe that preservation of capital leads to long-term outperformance. First and foremost, we develop products according to clients’ needs, not scalability.
