Chris Nicola, Founding Partner of Wealthbar, about Canada’s ETF-focused online wealth manager, regulatory hurdles, his hybrid offering and the plans ahead.

BY TOM BENSON AND MARTIN RAAB

Chris, could you please describe Wealthbar in a few sentences?

WealthBar is an easy and modern way for Canadians to invest online. Our clients get a simple but personalized investment portfolio that we manage and rebalance for them. They also work with a real financial advisor that helps them create and maintain their own personalized financial plan.

Wealth Management is part of your family DNA. Did your father John, a veteran financial advisor, inspire you for the start-up?

That was definitely where the idea started from. I had spent a lot of time working on technology and custom software for Nicola Wealth Management, as early as that age of 16. We have always wanted to find ways to make financial advice more efficient through technology. When we started WealthBar it was with the goal of making the kind of advice and investment management that Nicola Wealth offered more accessible for smaller clients.
