TORONTO, Jan. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - A major Ontario-based institutional
investment fund advisor says the announcement that the Ontario
government will support sustainable growth in Simcoe is good news for
investors and Simcoe.
Brian Spence of Strathallen Capital says increased certainty about
growth is always welcome in uncertain times.
Strathallen's client base includes pension funds, major corporations and
As of 2011, assets under Strathallen's administration exceed $550
million and over 5 million square feet in 36 different properties and
167 acres of development land, some of it in Simcoe.
"The 'Simcoe Vision' outlined by Infrastructure minister Bob Chiarelli
displays both economic and environmental foresight; it calls for local
solutions, supports job creation, increases planning certainty and will
lead to improvements in the quality of life in Simcoe," says Spence.
The development of new local employment lands mean people can live
closer to where they work and reduce the need for 'polluting
commuting'", says Spence.
"At the same time, the "Simcoe Vision" encourages Simcoe, Barrie and
Orillia to approve sustainable development that makes sense for their
communities" he concludes.
