The Grayhawk Story

The idea of Grayhawk came from a series of simple insights about what really matters to families and the gap we knew we had to fill.

In 2015 when we started speaking with successful people about managing wealth, we heard incredible stories: about families, their challenges and their dreams. We heard about the desire to look across generations to secure future success; we heard about the burden of complexity and the risk of missing out on opportunity. And we heard about trust – the desire to work in an open way, knowing that every decision was being made for their benefit.

So, we formed Grayhawk to help families be the best stewards of their wealth and to achieve that sense of well-being they’d been looking for.

Our timeline:

  • Launched with first family in 2015
  • Now pan-Canadian in 2020
  • Team members across Canada, with offices in Calgary, Toronto, Montreal
  • Benefit from being part of Sagard Holdings, an alternative asset investor and business builder, positioning us for continued growth with expanded expertise across Canada: www.sagardholdings.com
