Hall of fame inductions are often controversial, but the first class to join Canada's new Investment Industry Hall of Fame is not going to be one of those times.
The list of inductees, unveiled by the Investment Industry Association of Canada on Wednesday, includes founders of some of the biggest brokerages in the country, and some of the visionaries who changed the way business is done.
There are four living members of the new Hall of Fame, and four who were inducted posthumously.
Here's the list:
- Lawrence S. Bloomberg, C.M. – founder of First Marathon Securities, now National Bank Financial
- Anthony S. Fell, O.C. – longtime head of RBC Dominion Securities
- Donald K. Johnson, O.C. – former head of Burns Fry, now BMO Nesbitt Burns
- L. Jacques Ménard, C.C., O.Q. – chairman of BMO Nesbitt Burns
- Pierre Brunet, O.C. – former head of Lévesque Beaubien and National Bank Financial
- Rodolphe B. Casgrain - Founder and former chair, Casgrain & Co
- John A. MacNaughton, C.M. - Former president of BMO Nesbitt Burns and inaugural president and chief executive officer of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board
- Edward Rogers (E.R.) Wood – co-founder of Dominion Securities, now RBC Dominion Securities
