June 1st, 2020 by TopGun Press

For Immediate Release – New York, NY, June 1st, 2020 (TopGun Press)

Canada’s Sell-Side Panel of Analysts, Sales Executives and Traders have selected their most respected TopGun investment counter parties in trade for 2019/2020. The TopGun 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 150+ leading trading professionals on the sell-side. Collectively, the nominating Panel represents the majority of banks and broker dealers who deal with Canada’s TopGun Buy-Side professionals. The nomination process strictly limits the number of nominations a respondent can make in the competition. This methodology evens the playing field for all TopGun nominees. Out of a field of 400+ buy-side trader candidates, only 28 were individually selected in sufficient frequency for the TopGun designation.

Common traits of TopGun Buy-Side Traders trading Canadian equities include:

  • Ability to Put Large Blocks Together
  • Efficient Capital Usage
  • Deep Market Knowledge
  • Disciplined Trading
  • Outstanding Inter-Trader Relationship Management
  • Fair Commission Distribution
