TopGun Investment Minds and Buy-Side Traders of Canadian Stocks 2020/2021

For Immediate Release – New York, NY, May 14th, 2021 (TopGun Press)

Canada’s sell-side Panel of Investment Analysts, Sales Professionals, Traders and sell-side Management have selected their most respected TopGun investment counter parties in trade 2020/2021, namely members of the TopGun Club. The sell-side panel singles out individual investment decision makers as being the most accomplished investors in the Canada based investment industry.

Nominations this year were obtained in personal interviews/debriefs with 500+ leading professionals on the sell-side. The full debriefs focus on the sell-side view of global investment targets and also the portfolio managers, buy-side analysts and buy-side traders who most adroitly put them through their paces on these names. Collectively, the nominating Panel represents the majority of banks and broker dealers who deal with Canada’s TopGun investors. The objective selection process strictly limits the number of nominations a respondent can make and filters selections based upon the performance of funds managed by nominated investors.

The number one TopGun Investment Mind of the Year in Canada is Stuart Kedwell of RBC Global Asset Management, who has been designated a TopGun Investment Mind for twelve successive years.

The TopGun Buy-Side Traders of the Year trading Canadian Stocks were Sam Snell of RBC Global Asset Management and Tjerk de Gruijter of Connor, Clark & Lunn Investment Management in Canada and Brian Holland of Fidelity Investments, based in the US.

Anatomy of a TopGun Investment Mind

The vital working tools of a TopGun investor include brainpower, wisdom and intestinal fortitude. However, the list of requisite personal qualities and professional skills doesn’t stop there. Today’s TopGun investor is under scrutiny for performance short and longer term, little respite for even a well based value investment style to manifest itself over time. Assets move from fund to fund with increasing frequency by a more self-informed and demanding clientele. The TopGun investor often needs to balance investment style and exercise flexibility in order to maintain out-performance. There are few professions that demand the frequency of decision making challenges, as does equity portfolio management. TopGuns may be sector specialized or generalists, but in either case they need an informed world view on the many variables which define opportunity and risk. There are many checks and balances at work in the mind of a TopGun investor. A strong personality is required to redact to the facts and execute fearlessly.
