The First Trust Award for Young Gun of the Year

“I think supporting the next generation in terms of their wealth is why it’s important for more young people to enter the industry” – Emily Ben-Haim, Gluskin Sheff & Associates


EMILY BEN-HAIM of Gluskin Sheff called her win as Young Gun of the Year “very humbling.” For Ben-Haim, educating and supporting the next generation is an area of focus, and she believes the industry needs more young people to carry the torch.


“I love looking out for my clients,” she said. “They feel like family, and I care a lot about them, specifically women and the next generation and making sure they are informed and empowered to look after their wealth.”


Karl Cheong, head of distribution for Canada at award sponsor First Trust, agrees that young advisors are vital to the industry’s continued success. “These people are the future of the industry, so we are happy to support this every single year,” he said. “They are the lifeblood, and they will be the ones who are supporting our children.”
