Canadian Institutional Investment Summit

Event : Canadian Institutional Investment Summit

Mon, 15/10/2012  
Conducted by : Marcus Evans
Contact : Jenny Keane

 When differentiating Canada within the investment industry, it is clear to see that the Canadian market is on a steady rise. Although this culture is more conservative than and not quite as large as the US market, much of the financial infrastructure proves to be more reliable than most economies. The Toronto Stock Exchange, for example, sis the seventh largest in the world by market capitalization. The real estate rebound has put the Canadian real estate market in a comfortable place. This took place because Canada’s banking system remained in good health, unlike in the US which has suffered considerable. According to reports by the World Economic Forum, the Canadian banking system ranks as the world’s soundest banking system for the past three years. With this being said, the Canadian Institutional Investment Summit proves to be one worthwhile and one of a kind.

The one-on-one meetings with leading service providers will offer vast expertise in the area of investment and asset allocation strategies.
