TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - Northern Financial Corporation (TSX: NFC) ("Northern" or the "Company") announced that Robert Bruggeman has re-joined its wholly-owned subsidiary, Northern Securities Inc. ("Northern Securities") in the position of Managing Director, Institutional Sales. Mr. Bruggeman was a key member of Northern Securities from 2000 to 2005, joining Northern in 2000 as a technology analyst. While at Northern Securities he transitioned to Investment Banking, working in mergers and acquisitions before becoming Head of Research.  

After being hired by TD Securities as a desk analyst on the proprietary trading desk, Mr. Bruggeman spent 5 years at TD Securities generating investment and trading ideas based on company news, fundamental valuation, macroeconomics, sell-side research and technical analysis.   He covered all sectors of the Canadian equity market and market capitalization ranging from micro cap to large cap.   His analysis ranged from ad hoc analysis of breaking news to in-depth valuation work on companies.  

Mr. Bruggeman also directed a very successful multi-strategy proprietary trading account at TD Securities that generated returns exceeding 40% per year, while actively monitoring risk to preserve capital. Mr. Bruggeman left TD Securities in 2010 to join Canaccord Genuity as a proprietary trader.
