Connie Craddock

Connie Craddock of Ontario Securities Commission Investor Advisory Panel is on Wealth Professional Canada's Hot List of 2015.

Craddock is well-known in the industry for the time she spent at the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada [IIROC]. But after leaving IIROC, Craddock become chair of eight-member Investor Advisory Panel, working to advise the Ontario Securities Commission on investor protection issues.

She hasn’t been shy about speaking out. According to her, the regulator has failed to address “inadequate and outdated regulatory standards” on investing advice. She urges quick action on “fair, independent complaint handling” and binding compensation.
