The Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC) has made two new appointments to its senior management team: Carolyn Quick to vice-president, public affairs; and, effective March 19, Minal Upadhyaya will be vice-president, policy and general counsel.
Quick has experience managing enterprise-wide communications, public affairs and reputation management programs. Most recently, she was the vice-president of corporate communications and public affairs with TMX Group.
Upadhyaya has been with TD Wealth since 2005, most recently as associate vice-president. She has also practiced investment funds law.
IFIC president and CEO Paul Bourque says, “Canada’s securities regulators have an active agenda for 2018 that will include proposed rules on targeted reforms and further consultations on measures to address conflicts of interest.” IFIC’s additions to it senior management team, he says, will help the organization “represent both industry and investor interests as these proposals and consultations move forward.”
