March 10th, 2011 by TopGun Press

PALM BEACH, FL, March 10, 2011 (TOPGUN PRESS) – As earlier announced, performance and Career Advisory firm Brendan Wood International has recently concluded this year’s worldwide search for the best-of-the-best investment minds in the increasingly globalized investment community. In keeping with investment industry practice, Brendan Wood International Partners addressed the overlapping trio of technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) as a focal measurement of investment expertise. The technology, media and telecommunications space requires intricate knowledge and understanding of the technologies involved. These three sectors are a prism through which investor masterminds can be effectively identified, albeit within segments of this market space which emphasize high levels of interest and expertise.

Brendan Wood International enlisted the patient cooperation of 600 world-leading sell side analysts in selecting investors who set themselves apart for their brilliance and performance in the field.

T. Rowe Price matched JP Morgan Asset Management for most TopGuns in the space. T. Rowe’s Paul Greene and Joshua Spencer were designated TopGuns while JP Morgan has Rob Bowman and Scott Davis. Tony Kim of Artisan Partners and Emile El Nems of Amber Capital, demonstrated a thorough understanding of global dynamics relative to this fast-changing sector, receiving votes equally from both sides of the Atlantic.

While sometimes taking a back seat in the resource-focused Canadian market, the local TMT space has been quietly growing over the past few years. If commodities truly are a bubble as some predict, the space will continue to see a rise in allocated investment capital. The sell side elected four Investment Minds who are considered the most influential TMT experts in the Canadian marketplace.

Jean-François Jolicoeur; Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec

Malcolm White; CI Investments

Gary Baker; Connor, Clark & Lunn Investment Management
