Our purpose is to improve our client’s “Dividend On Life” (DOL, as opposed to the traditional approach of trying to improve the client’s portfolio ROI). At DLR we understand that our responsibility centres around the long-term stability and financial well-being of our clients. For this reason, we aim to develop a sensible solution for our clients’ Dividend on Life, by the protection and growth of the wealth requirements of families and businesses. Over the years, DLR has acquired a wealth of expertise to ensure that both families’ and their business’ needs can be serviced from our offices.


A holistic view of our client’s Dividend on Life is required. The merger of our groups has enhanced our value proposition, enabling us to design the solution for our clients, by offering an expanded suite of services. DLR is now in a unique position to provide hindsight (compliance services), insight (performance-oriented services) and foresight (strategic services). This sets the stage for innovation and game-changing performance for our clients.


Using a Team-Based Model, we work closely with clients to identify planning needs and opportunities, we then work in conjunction with in-house professionals that specialize in a wide range of services to create a cohesive team intended to help you reach your own unique goals. Rather than clients receiving disjointed advice from multiple independent advisors, we bring all the necessary professionals together to work as one TEAM for you. Our range of services includes among others, the establishment of your business, ongoing advice, supporting growth through tax, wealth and accounting services, and positioning of the ownership for future generations through our fiduciary services.

We understand the continuous effort and commitment necessary to establish a successful family or business, and it is our passion to support and advise the individuals involved.
