The Private Capital Markets Association 6th Annual Conference

MICHAEL LEE-CHIN, the Chairman of Portland Holdings is widely regarded as a visionary entrepreneur whose philosophy of “doing well and doing good” has resulted in extraordinary business success and inspiring philanthropic initiatives.

As the founder of Portland, Michael Lee-Chin’s business accomplishments span various countries and numerous sectors. Portland currently owns a collection of diversified businesses, operating in sectors that include financial services, consumer goods, waste management, tourism, insurance, agriculture and media.

Portland is committed to “Building Strong Indigenous Businesses”. Equally important, these businesses must also seek to improve the social well-being of the communities in which they operate. Michael formally established as the Portland mantra – “prosperitas cum caritate” – which in Latin speaks to his goal that businesses must “not only do well, but also do good” – that is the measure of success. “Giving back is not the privilege of successful entrepreneurs—it’s their duty,” he says. 

Today, Michael remains firmly committed to creating wealth for investors as Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Portland Investment Counsel Inc., an investment fund manager, portfolio manager and exempt market dealer.   “The Wealthy Invest Differently. At Portland we have made it our mission to democratize wealth creation opportunities by providing all wealth-seeking investors with ACCESS to investment opportunities both within the public and private realm that are typically reserved for the affluent and institutional investor” he says.

“We are presenting a rare opportunity to all private capital markets industry professionals.  To hear Michael Lee-Chin speak...It’s the ultimate masters class”, says Doug Bedard, PCMA Chair.  “It’s an honour to have Michael Lee-Chin share his time with us.
