September 15, 2008 – Welcome to our new look! As part of our 20th anniversary celebrations (commencing in 2009) we have decided to evolve our brand image! Our legal name remains Rae & Lipskie Investment Counsel Inc. Our new marketing name, The RaeLipskie Partnership, reflects one of our primary philosophies: partnership. We partner with you – our clients – to realize your investment objectives. Our portfolio managers and staff in our Waterloo and Burlington offices work together as partners to make that happen. Our partnership approach provides the opportunity to finalize our commitment to our Priority Capital Management Inc. clients, formally welcoming them into The RaeLipskie Partnership ‘family’.
