Diversify your wealth by investing in Canada as a European resident

Canada, a land of opportunity

Discover the many advantages that Canada offers to European investors. Since 2014, the Degroof Petercam Group has been helping investors to diversify their assets in Canada.
Following the success of the joint venture on the Canadian market in the private equity segment with a Quebec partner, the Group took a second step in 2018. To promote the Group's identity in Canada, a representative office was opened in Montreal. Its objective is to serve European investors looking for investment opportunities in Quebec and wishing to diversify their assets outside the Eurozone.
