Mark Wiseman of Blackrock is part of this year's Wealth Professional Canada's Hot List.
Global head of active equities
Mark Wiseman wears many hats for the world’s largest asset manager, including global head of active equities, chairman of BlackRock Alternative Investors and its global investment committee, and a member of BlackRock’s global executive committee. Previously CEO of the CPPIB, Wiseman knows a thing or two about international trade, and the current NAFTA impasse troubles him. “Even if you look at events that shake us to the core like 9-11, ultimately after some degree of correction, markets came back and reverted on the course they had been on for the past couple of decades,” he told BNN. “The trade issue is a geopolitical issue that can actually change the very foundation on the economic deal under which companies operate.”
