Investment dealers confident of strong 2014

The men and women running Canada’s investment dealers are an optimistic bunch.

The Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC) surveyed 166 chief executive officers at Canada’s dealer firms about how global capital markets will do in 2014. Thirty-nine per cent of the survey’s respondents – IIAC didn’t say how many CEOs participated – believe the markets will improve. Another 48 per cent expect the markets to remain unchanged.
