Cantor Fitzgerald LP is pushing hard to make a go of it in Canada, adding David Tomljenovic as a managing director with a focus on special situations and growth companies.
Mr. Tomljenovic was last at Beacon Securities as MD in the firm's investment banking group. Prior to that he was a portfolio manager at Sprott Asset Management and an analyst at Clarus Securities.
Cantor is about two years into a foray into the equities and investment banking business in Canada, after purchasing Versant Partners in 2012. It hasn't been an easy time to get into the banking business in Canada, as many firms have been cutting back to weather a quiet market in many sectors.
