CI professionals recognized as TopGun Investment Minds

May 8, 2017

CI Investments Inc. (“CI”) is pleased to announce that five CI investment professionals were named “TopGun Investment Minds” by Brendan Wood International as they recognized leaders in the investment industry for 2016/2017. In addition, CI was ranked in the top five TopGun investment teams of the year by the global advisory firm.

“It is a pleasure to see our portfolio managers receive this recognition,” said Neal Kerr, Executive Vice-President, Investment Management, at CI Investments. “We value the dedication and expertise they consistently bring to the active management of CI’s fund lineup.”

Every year, Brendan Wood International announces the TopGun Investment Minds based on the careful consideration of leaders in the sell-side of the industry. This year, nearly 400 discussions took place among the sell-side Panelists to nominate the top decile of portfolio managers and buy-side analysts who “truly stand out genuinely amongst an elite field of investment professionals.”

Three of CI’s portfolio managers were also designated Platinum Class based on being selected as TopGuns for four consecutive years. Here are CI’s TopGun Investment Minds:

Signature Global Asset Management

  • Stephane Champagne, Vice-President, Portfolio Management and Portfolio Manager (Platinum Class). Mr. Champagne has been ranked as a TopGun Investment Mind consecutively from 2009 to 2016.

  • Malcolm White, CFA, Vice-President, Portfolio Management and Portfolio Manager (Platinum Class). Mr. White has been ranked as a TopGun Investment Mind consecutively from 2009 to 2016.

  • Hoa Hong, CFA, Associate Portfolio Manager, TopGun Investment Mind from 2011 through 2013, 2015 and 2016.

Cambridge Global Asset Management

  • Greg Dean, CFA, Principal and Portfolio Manager (Platinum Class), has been ranked as a TopGun Investment Mind from 2012 to 2016.

  • Stephen Groff, CFA, Principal and Portfolio Manager, TopGun Investment Mind in 2015 and 2016.

The Brendan Wood TopGuns recognition is given to buy-side analysts through voting of sell-side professionals casting their ballots for the investors they personally believe to be the leaders of thought in the industry during the past year. TopGuns are those that garnered the upper decile of sell-side nominations. All TopGuns recognitions are subjective judgments and opinions, based on the experience of Brendan Wood and on information obtained by them from third parties on whose responses they have relied in good faith. There has been independent verification by Brendan Wood.
