Not your typical
mutual fund.

An independent RRSP, TFSA and RESP eligible value fund for Canadians


I want the same thing as you.  I want my retirement savings to be safe and grow. Of course, no one can guarantee how their fund will perform. What I can say is I am invested alongside you. McElvaine Value Fund is not a job but my focus.


I have been value investing for over 30 years; I started working with value guru Peter Cundill in 1991. In 1996, I formed McElvaine Value Fund (formerly The McElvaine Investment Trust) as an investment fund for my family and friends with a simple principle: our money would be invested alongside our clients, same fund, same fees. In 2019, we began offering the fund under prospectus which allows like minded investors (hopefully you) to invest with us.

Finally, and most importantly, you are my partner.  If you have questions or just want to talk, please schedule a call or send an email.  I am always happy to chat.
