    TORONTO, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - Counsel Wealth Management today announced that
it has expanded its range of investments to include Counsel Portfolio
Component Funds. The new investment solutions complement Counsel's existing
range of strategic and tactical portfolios.
    "This marks the next chapter for Counsel as a portfolio service
provider," says Sam Febbraro, Counsel's President & Chief Executive Officer.
"Our expanded range of solutions will give our advisor partners greater
flexibility, greater transparency and a wider choice of investment strategies
when recommending a portfolio solution to their clients," he explains.

    Counsel also announced the appointment of three new investment
specialists to its roster of investment management experts.

    The new additions to the team are:

    Sionna Investment Managers Inc.,
    Picton Mahoney Investment Management, and
    Montrusco Bolton Investments Inc.

    The new appointments follow an extensive exercise to review, research,
analyze and identify the ideal candidate for each investment mandate.
    "Counsel's ability to provide an unbiased selection of investment
specialists along with stringent monitoring, and, when necessary, the
replacement of investment specialists, is a significant value-added
proposition to advisors. By providing this crucial, but cumbersome, service to
advisors, Counsel enables them to concentrate on managing the needs of their
clients more effectively," says Mr. Febbraro.
