The Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC) announced today it will begin accepting names for the second year of nominations for the IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame.
The IIAC Hall of Fame, established in 2013, serves to honour excellence, integrity and leadership in Canada’s investment industry.
“The investment industry and its professionals contribute to wealth creation and capital formation in the country, benefiting individual Canadians and corporate Canada,” said Ian Russell, IIAC president and CEO. “Our industry today employs almost 40,000 Canadians and manages $1 trillion in assets. It also raised $32 billion in equity capital last year alone to finance corporations and, in turn, deliver more products and services to Canadians.
“We are proud to honour outstanding individuals who have contributed to the investment industry and are worthy of inclusion in this elite group of Inductees,” said Russell. “These individuals represent excellence, innovation and integrity in our industry.”
A maximum of four living and four posthumous candidates will be inducted into the IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame annually. Nominations will be accepted up to, and including, Friday, May 2, 2014.
