About iA Clarington Investments President and CEO Adam Elliott

Adam Elliott was appointed President and CEO of iA Clarington Investments in April 2021. He joined the company in 2018 after 18 years with Dynamic Funds. He has over 25 years of experience in the finance industry.

Elliott holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from McGill University. After graduating from university, he worked as an underwriter in London – his first real exposure to investing and asset management. This piqued an interest in a career vastly different from his area of study, history.

He returned to Canada after 3 years in the UK and embarked on a career in finance and investments. His history degree did not go to waste; he found that critical thinking and writing were valued skills in the investment industry too. The rest, as they say, is history.
