- Financial Services delegation in Toronto to raise awareness
EDMONTON, June 8 /CNW/ - Edmonton is emerging as a strong, significant
player in the Canadian finance industry. The region has one of the largest
pools of investment capital in Canada, with approximately $130 billion in
combined assets under management. Edmonton is headquarters for Canadian
Western Bank, ATB Financial and the recently formed Alberta Investment
Management Corporation (AIMCo), one of the nation's largest investment fund
managers with assets of $70 billion.
And Edmonton's financial sector is hiring - it's a fast track for skilled
employees in a vibrant, family-focused cultural centre.
A delegation from Edmonton made up of some of Canada's most successful
bankers and finance experts is in Toronto this week to tell the story of
Edmonton's investment and career opportunities.
