Pioneer Wealth Management provides wealth management, portfolio management and financial planning services to high net worth individuals and families around the world.
Pioneer does not receive any remuneration or benefit as a result of wealth management services provided to clients. If for any reason, Pioneer should receive such remuneration from a Financial Institution or Bank, this remuneration will be remitted, in full, to the Client.
Pioneer Wealth Management serves clients and families around the world and is licensed to operate via the following companies:
- Pioneer Financial Planning (92) Ltd. which serves mainly Israeli, European and South African clients - holds a Portfolio Management license from the Israeli Securities Authority, the South African Financial Services Board, is registered with the Ontario Securities Commission as an International Advisor in Canada and an Authorised Representative licensed by the FCA in the UK.

Pioneer’s business model is such that we are remunerated from one source only, for each investment. For our wealth management service clients, our only source of income are the Management Fees paid by the Client to Pioneer.
This model is not valid in relation to most Israeli Pension solutions, for whom Pioneer is remunerated directly only from the relevant institution, and not from the client (only relevant for clients contracted with Pioneer Financial Planning (92) ltd.). This is not relevant to clients contracted with Pioneer Administrative Services ltd., which is a foreign RIA.
As a company operating for over 30 years in the financial industry, we have legacy business where clients in the past were referred to various investment institutions. Pioneer may still be remunerated by those investment institutions with regard to those investments. Those institutions are considered to be an affiliation*. Clients do not pay Pioneer any fee for those investments.
In general, Pioneer does not take ESG factors into consideration in the portfolio management decision making process and risk management. However, ESG portfolios are available for clients who request it, particularly in global portfolios. The portfolios are based on ESG and SDGs principles, according to external companies ESGs ratings.
