Joe Canavan

Name any innovation in the Canadian wealth management industry, and it seems Canavan has been involved.  He was at Fidelity from 60 million to a meteoric rise to 6 billion.  Started GT Global (now AIM Trimark) and ramped it to 2.5 billion in 2 years.  He started (then sold) Synergy Asset Management to CI Financial for amazing bundle and with his team from Synergy turned around Assante Wealth Management, which is now a $30 billion company. In 2012-2014 he parachuted in to turnaround the Children’s Aid Foundation as Interim CEO. He completed the job (as a volunteer) and replaced himself with a new CEO.  The serial entrepreneur then had a hand in Wealthsimple, which just struck a deal with Power Financial. His latest projects? Fintech start-ups, Borrowell and Koho Financial, Temperance Capital and half dozen other tech businesses.
