Roxana Tavana


Grayhawk’s unique focus on the financial, life and legacy of the entire family at every step of the investment process and its dedication to a transparent and independent investment platform were the key forces in propelling me to join the firm. Having worked with some of Canada’s most successful families, it is clear that the wealth built within the family is deserving of both preservation and growth with a view to the entire family legacy. Being part of Grayhawk allows me to be part of a firm that places the focus on our clients’ long-term goals to allow for the fulfillment of a family’s life dreams and intergenerational wealth transfer needs.
