Find an Expert

The Media Contact Directory is a comprehensive guide of our members that gives you direct access to investment industry experts within the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.

The directory consists of members who have had their CFA charter for more than five years and have areas of expertise that they are willing to share by accepting phone calls or taking part in media interviews. We have also added a new section for members who have had their charters for three to five years. There are over 25 investment-related areas showcased in the directory.

Please note that members are speaking on behalf of their areas of expertise and/or their company. If you would like to speak with someone representing CFA Society Toronto, please contact Jonathan Mai at.

The directory is released in print format on an annual basis and is updated quarterly on the CFA Society Toronto website.
