Brendan Wood International Announces 2015/2016 TopGun Investment Minds and Canada’s TopGun (Best in Class) Investment Teams

RBC Global Asset Management & CI Investments Top the Polls

For Immediate Release – TORONTO, Canada, February 11th, 2016 (TopGun Press) – Brendan Wood International is pleased to announce that sixty-one buy-side investment professionals have been voted TopGuns this year. Two hundred and sixty-five sell-side professionals cast their ballots for the investors they believed to be the leaders of thought in the industry during the past year.

“TopGuns again make up slightly less than ten percent of the nominees and again this year we found no bias toward large commission payers or firms. As always, each voter is limited as to the number of names for whom they may vote. Given the market conditions, the sell-side nominators made difficult choices of their most respected counter parties on the buy-side,” said Jordan Novak, Managing Director, Brendan Wood International.
Common reasons for nominations of this year’s TopGun Investment Minds include:

Asks the right, tough questions
Creative and open to new ideas
Critical mind
Global thinker
Diligent approach and analytical process
Disciplined investor
Does not listen to market “noise”
Forward thinking

Jennifer McClelland, veteran portfolio manager at RBC Global Asset Management, earned the title of TopGun Investment Mind of the Year. In all, RBC Global Asset Management fielded eight TopGuns, the largest number fielded by any firm this year.
