Indigenous Communities

Beutel Goodman Indigenous Communities Team

We have been working with Indigenous communities to provide investment management services since 2003. Over this span of nearly 20 years, we have worked towards strengthening our relationships with First Nation, Métis & Inuit peoples through education, workshops and community engagement, alongside portfolio management and client servicing. As of July 2022, we serve over 35 Indigenous communities/clients across Canada with an asset base of almost $1 billion.
