Managing other people’s money is one of the more stressful professions a person can choose, especially in a competitive environment where brainpower, wisdom and intestinal fortitude are the tools of the trade. The selection of TopGun Teams is made by a similar group of highly talented and mentally tough professionals, namely the TopGun Analysts, Sales Executives and Traders on the sell side of the investment business who do business with investment managers every day. Nominations are strictly limited and involve the entire industry, forcing the issue of selectivity over patronage. The particular questions which single out the TopGuns relate to the quality of the individual ‘investment minds’ regardless of the institution. The management firms which receive the highest frequency of individual TopGun Investment Mind nominations is designated a TopGun Team. “Another discriminating filter which governs selection is the actual investment performance of the individual, over several years versus the investment mandates of funds managed,” says Jordan Novak, Partner, Brendan Wood International.

Consolidation in the investment industry signals the rising pressure in the business to perform competitively. The firms which have built a culture of performance in respect of their investment mandates distinguishes them amongst a wide range of competition equally bent on building assets under administration and meeting their fund objectives. Another key influence on performance is the demand for global asset management by Canadian clients and self managed pension funds. Many Canadian management firms are fully global in terms of their portfolio composition meaning that these managers are, by necessity, global sector experts running up against the best run funds in the world. Despite the volume of a firm’s assets under administration, performance matters. A firm culture which breeds TopGun Investment Minds, equal to global competition, is vital to growth and retention. The individual 2020 TopGun Club Membership list will be published separately.
