Career History
Vice President & Director
Current

TDAM employs various methods of security analysis. The firm's fixed income investment philosophy is based upon strong and independent credit research. Proprietary research is vital to the firm's investment process and forms the basis for all of their investment decisions. Within the quantitative investment strategies, TDAM use a number of proprietary risk models to evaluate companies and select investments. The Low Volatility Equity strategy relies on proprietary risk models to construct optimized portfolios of stocks which have demonstrated lower long-term volatility. These risk models use statistical methods to capture the relationships between currency and stock return fluctuations. Similarly, the Systematic Alpha strategy relies on proprietary return factor models, which use statistical methods to determine the properties of stocks that have historically been associated with superior performance. Core factors include value (higher earnings and dividend yields), market sentiment (price momentum and earnings revisions), quality (profitability, operating efficiency, distance-to-default), and corporate management (shareholder friendly practices). Each of these strategies invest in a diversified portfolio of equity securities including, but not limited to, common and preferred stocks, securities convertible into common stocks, ETFs, American Depository Receipts, and real estate investment trusts. Each of these strategies will also invest in money market securities and other cash management vehicles.

BMO Harris Private Investment Counsel's (BPICI) investment process focuses on active portfolio management that incorporates quantitative modeling and fundamental research. The firm focuses on providing superior, tax-efficient, long-term returns through prudent, risk-managed investments. Their investment strategy combines a bottom-up stock selection process with top-down analysis of the macroeconomic outlook and expectations for financial market returns. BPICI's equity investment philosophy is based on a two-pronged approach to the analysis of Canadian equities. Stocks must first meet very high standards for fundamental attributes. Then selections are made based on the unique needs of the portfolio's style. The firm employs a sophisticated quantitative tool to ensure that portfolios maintain the desired characteristics. BPICI's fixed-income philosophy employs a conservative and disciplined process that seeks to preserve capital and produce stable and competitive rates of return with reduced volatility. They emphasize high-quality holdings with a gradual and systematic approach to portfolio shifts.
