Wealthsimple Financial Corp., a leader in automated investing, now manages over $1 Billion and is backed by Power Financial Corp., one of the most trusted financial institutions in the world.

    What We Do

    We're on a mission to make investing smarter and simpler for everyone. We develop algorithms to track, manage, and rebalance client portfolios. Wealthsimple clients can see how their money is doing in real-time via our web application as well as our native apps on iOS and Android.

    Who We Are

    Wealthsimple is backed by a team of world-class financial experts and Silicon Valley's best technology talent. We've raised $30M in capital from Power Financial Corp., one of the world's highest rated financial institutions who manage over $780B in global assets. Our talented team of talented software engineers, designers, and data scientists have previously worked at such companies as Amazon, Google, and Apple.

    Our investment team is led by industry experts like Eric Kirzner, the veteran investment finance professor and the John H. Watson Chair in Value Investing at Rotman. Kirzner was one of the first to write about and design North America’s first ETF, the Toronto 35 Index Participation Fund.
