After graduating with a Bachelor of Engineering and an MBA, Alex entered the financial industry, specializing in Insurance and Risk Management. After working with Canada’s largest insurance company, Manulife Financial, he joined a boutique financial advisory firm in downtown Toronto where he provided wealth management solutions to some of Canada’s wealthiest families by collaborating with actuaries and tax professionals with leading firms. In 2003, Alex was invited to join a new global asset management firm started by Wilfred Hahn, the former Chairman of the Global Investment Group of the Royal Bank of Canada.
