Understanding What's Important to You

Our relationship with clients is based on a simple philosophy—
Ask the right questions, listen carefully to your answers.

Before we can envision what wealth management will mean for you and your family,
we need to learn what is most important to you and your family.

Eric B. Propper, CFA


“We can certainly speak about our investment returns and estate planning strategies, but at the end of the day, the most important element of our relationship with clients is serving as their trusted advisor. One way we create and build trust is by considering all family members, their financial commitments and their charitable passions in our wealth management discussions. We believe this dialogue gives clients peace of mind and creates a deep understanding about how we can best serve our clients and their families over time. We are very proud that some of our client relationships span more than 40 years and include four generations. Our business is a relationship business, and these multi-generational families are the types of long-standing clients that really illustrate that point.”

CIBC Atlantic Trust Advantage


As we look back over CIBC Atlantic Trust’s 95+ year history through legacy firms, we believe our professionals’ unwavering commitment to deliver excellence to our clients has been key to our success. Three key strengths, in combination, distinguish our offering to private clients:



Proven, Multi-Asset Class Investment Platform

Internal investing makes us better at external manager selection, and the addition of globally diversified external managers and access to alternatives enhance our strong, risk-adjusted returns.

Cohesive Wealth Planning and Trustee Services

We demystify the complexity of wealth planning and help you articulate and achieve your vision for your wealth and legacy. Where trusts are used, we can serve as trustee through our national and Delaware trust companies.

Access to Tailored Private Banking Solutions

Through our collaboration with CIBC Bank USA, you may access private banking, lending and deposit strategies to help you manage your personal cash flow, provide you with custom lending options and optimize your cash management.

Highest-Quality Client Experience

Creating a personalized, holistic wealth plan takes resources, expertise and time. CIBC Atlantic Trust maintains a low client-to-advisor ratio and ensures that each client's multi-functional team is led by a credentialed relationship manager with an average of 28 years of industry experience. We commit to provide high-touch service and proactively incorporate the best thinking from internal and affiliated experts in investments, wealth strategies, trust services and private banking. To assess the effectiveness of our approach, we look at our firm's high client retention and ongoing referrals of family and friends, which we view as some of the best indicators of client satisfaction.

Importantly, as fiduciaries, CIBC Atlantic Trust professionals are accountable for results, always act in your best interests, and openly share fee and performance information. We develop a plan to fit your distinct requirements, and we ensure that investments are not only suitable, but appropriate.
