It facilitates the development of common events and venues with other members of the financial sector.


 

Canada has an incredible pool of talented emerging managers given its relatively small level of Assets Under Management (AUM). Its financial sector is recognized as one of the most stable in the world. The cultural bias towards conservative investments is reflected in the investment approach of its managers and their risk adjusted returns.

Canada’s two main financial centers, Montreal and Toronto, have the most CFAs per capita in the world!

This high concentration of CFA charter holders has influenced its financial industry to answer to the highest standards of ethics in the asset management field.

The EMB’s objective is to promote its local talent to Canadian and international clients. Canada has yet to develop an emerging managers program. Our non-profit organization tries to facilitate asset allocation towards our members. Finally, the EMB contributes to the improvement of the Canadian financial sector and its sustainability by maintaining and attracting talented managers.

We invite you to watch the Director Geneviève Blouin introduce the organization and discuss the EMB’s mission and purpose.
