VANCOUVER, Nov. 12 /CNW/ - Haywood Securities Inc., one of Canada's leading independent investment dealers, has appointed Warren Robinson to its institutional sales group to focus on building the oil and gas team. Robinson brings a wealth of experience and proven leadership skills that will strengthen Haywood's position in the energy sector.

"In our efforts to continue to provide our clients with ideas and investments that are forward-looking and profitable in the oil and gas sector, we are extremely fortunate that Warren has decided to join our firm," said David Lyall, Head of Institutional Sales at Haywood. "Warren will be based in our Calgary office where his reputation and experience will be a huge asset to Haywood as we continue to grow our team and expand our focus on oil and gas in Canada and internationally."

Robinson has worked in a variety of roles in institutional equity sales, where he gained extensive experience and knowledge of the domestic and international oil and gas markets. He was most recently managing director at Tristone Capital, which was acquired by Macquarie Group in August 2009.

"Oil and gas is a cornerstone industry for Canada and as the economy strengthens, the opportunities in this sector are increasing," said Lyall. "With the ever changing markets, it is crucial that Haywood continues to provide clients with exceptional strategic investment advice and the strongest platform to remain ahead of the curve. Warren's entrepreneurial spirit and vast experience and knowledge in the oil and gas arena will be a significant asset."
