For Immediate Release – New York, NY, March 26th, 2019 (TopGunSM Press)

Dear Panel Members and Clients,

Canada’s sell-side Panel of Analysts, Sales Executives and Traders have selected their most respected TopGunSM investment counter parties in trade for 2018/2019. The TopGunSM Panel singles out individual investment professionals as being the most accomplished professionals in the Canadian investment industry.

Nominations this year were collected in personal interviews/debriefs with 459 leading professionals on the sell-side. These debriefs cover the sell-side view of contemporary investment targets against the portfolio managers, buy-side analysts and buy-side traders who most adroitly put them through their paces on these names each day. Collectively, the nominating Panel represents the majority of banks and broker dealers who deal with Canada’s TopGunSM investors. The nomination process strictly limits the number of nominations a respondent can make in the competition. This methodology evens the playing field for all TopGunSM nominees. Investment professionals are elected to TopGunSM status based upon the number of nominations they receive as a TopGun. Out of a field of 900+ portfolio manager and buy-side trader candidates, only 78 and 19 respectively were individually selected in sufficient frequency for the TopGunSM designation.

The highest scoring TopGunSM Investment Mind in Canada this year is Stuart Kedwell of RBC Global Asset Management. Stuart has been voted a TopGunSM for ten years in a row.

There are Nine veteran TopGunSM Investment Minds in Canada who have been voted into TopGunSM status in each of the last Ten years.
