The TMX Group Award for Best Active Manager – Exchange-Traded Derivatives

“The key for me is to focus on the client – that is the most important thing. I make sure their money is protected and can meet all of their financial goals” – Avin Mehra, Mehra Wealth Management, CIBC Wood Gundy


Avin Mehra’s win as Best Active Manager – Exchange Traded Derivatives was aided by his investment philosophy, which centres around preservation of capital.


“I always try to consider my clients’ money as my own, and if it was my money, I wouldn’t want to lose it,” Mehra says. “Most of my book is 50+, so they don’t want to see a downturn in the market; they don’t want to play games or gamble their money. They want to retire comfortably. I keep all of that in mind all of the time”


For Josiane Lanoue, senior manager of equity derivatives at award sponsor TMX’s Montreal Exchange, “the Wealth Professional Awards are a great occasion to celebrate our peers. Dear to our hearts is obviously the equity derivatives business, and we thought it was important to bring forward the advisor who goes above and beyond when actively managing portfolios.”

Special thanks to our sponsors
