Like You, We Are Entrepreneurs.

R&D Securities Inc. is a registered securities dealer with investment professionals in all 8 major provinces.


What is an Exempt Market Dealer?

Rethink & Diversify Securities Inc. is an Exempt Market Dealer ("EMD") which means we are a registered securities dealer that raises capital for private companies. Before a private business potentially goes public with an Initial Public Offering ("IPO") and begins trading on a stock exchange, they almost all start out as closely-held private companies.

Common examples include:

  • Apartment Buildings
  • Farmland
  • Individual Hotel
  • pre-IPO Tech Company
  • Industrial Warehouses

Typical Stages of Company Growth


Working With You.

R&D started out 8 years ago in Saskatchewan with one simple mission: RESPECT THE CAPITAL.

Since then, we have grown to become licensed and operate in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, PEI, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and have Dealer Representatives near you, ready to sit down and understand your current situation and objectives.

When our Dealing Representatives meet with clients, they start by assessing their current portfolio, followed by a full know-your-client (KYC) assessment, and can only offer an investment if the client is qualified and if it is suitable for their circumstances. Many of these private investments are often RRSP and TFSA eligible. To see the investment options available to you, contact a Dealing Representative in your province and schedule a meeting.

Alternatively, clients can choose to invest online and make their own investment decision using our secure online system. You can also join one of our regularly scheduled webinars to learn more.


Work With a Professional

Consider working with a financial professional who can provide private investments to complement your portfolio. Financial professionals licensed through R&D Securities as Dealing Representatives have access to private debt and equity investments. We can show you how to access these investments traditionally reserved only for institutional investors or high net worth individuals.


Online Investments

Are you the type of investor who is secure in your experience and ability to conduct the due diligence and research needed to make your investment decisions entirely on your own? Consider using our online system that allows you to research and invest in private opportunities yourself.
