Mr. Slager has an undergraduate degree from the University of Western Ontario and a law degree from The University of British Columbia.
“As an advisor to TIGER 21 beginning with its Canadian launch two years ago, I’ve watched the groups grow by leaps and bounds. From my observations and the testimonials of current Members it is clear that TIGER 21 is adding real and significant value to Members’ lives in important and diverse ways,” said Mr. Slager. “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to be a part of this unique network of high-net-worth individuals. I also look forward to collaborating with Roxana, whose vast wealth expertise is an immeasurable asset.”
“It is a privilege to be involved with a world class organization like TIGER 21 and I look forward to using my insight into navigating the complexities of wealth towards creating an exceptional and unique experience for the Vancouver TIGER 21 Members,” said Ms. Colquhoun.
“Roxana and Ben have complementary skills and knowledge of the high-net-worth community that will be invaluable to the existing Vancouver Members,” said Thane Stenner, TIGER 21’s Managing Director for Canada, and Founding Member. “With their arrival, we have Members who are excited to learn as well as contribute, chairs who are the best in the business, and an elite list of presenters on topics that run the full spectrum of interest to high-net-worth investors.”
TIGER 21 creates a highly confidential environment for Members to safely explore critical issues affecting their lives. Through regular monthly meetings, as well as through exchanges on a private Members-only website, TIGER 21 Members share their knowledge and experiences, and help each other wrestle with issues relating to finance,investments, managers and advisors. An important part of the curriculum focuses on estate planning, family (particularly issues of wealth and children), health, and issues of communal involvement. TIGER 21’s Presenter Program complements each meeting by providing access to top finance experts from around the globe that often introduce Members to a variety of investment opportunities, as well as experts that focus on other issues.
“TIGER 21 Canada has been extremely successful after launching only two years ago, which is attributable in large part to the leadership provided by Thane and the quality chairs that he has been able to secure for each group,” said Jonathan Kempner, President of TIGER 21. “The Canadian groups are a valued part of the TIGER 21 family and this is on display through the regular contact among all North American Members, individual visits, participation in the Members-only website and the TIGER 21 annual conference.”
The Canadian groups have hosted a number of notable experts on financial topics and other wealth-related issues. Among the presenters are Larry Ohlhauser, President and CEO of Ohlhauser & Associates, who spoke on empowering individuals to take responsibility for their own health; Gerald Connor, Chairman and CEO at Cumberland Private Wealth, on global markets; Barry Allan, founding partner of Marret Asset Management Inc. on fixed income investments; Blake Bromley of Benefic, on using philanthropy in estate planning; David Picton of Picton Mahony; and Stephen King of Alaris Royalty as well as some of Deloitte’s senior partners on tax trends.
