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.
