Welcome Jim McGill
Jeff Brown, President and CEO, and Doug Crocker, Chairman, are pleased to announce that Jim McGill has joined 18 Asset Management’s Advisory Committee.
In the development of its business strategy and maintenance of crucial independent governance 18 AM believes in leveraging world-class expertise. Much like a Board of Directors, the Advisory Committee provides management with thoughtful, well-researched analysis on potential issues the firm may encounter.
I am very pleased that Jim McGill is joining the Advisory Committee for 18 Asset Management. I first met Jim nearly 15 years ago when we hired him to lead our foray into the institutional asset management business. He immediately impressed with his integrity, industry knowledge and communication skills. Importantly, he always demonstrated a strong desire to do what is right for the client. I know he will be a strong addition to an already strong board.
Never have I seen the dedication and enthusiasm displayed by all the stakeholders to create a world class investment counseling business from scratch. 18 Asset Management is an example of what most of the big shops should be doing. In addition, the Style Overlay product that 18 AM offers is a unique product that fills a void in the Canadian equity product field. I am honoured to be a member of their advisory board.
At our last shop, Jim’s knowledge of the investment industry was such that he was the only non-founding employee invited to join our Board of Directors. Jim’s endorsement of 18 AM’s investment process and business philosophy is coming at a critical juncture with 18 AM having recently attained the third anniversary of its track record fund. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Jim again.
