Deadline to nominate industry leaders set for May 22

By IE Staff |

The Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC) has begun accepting nominations for the 2015 class of IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame Inductees, the association said Tuesday.

Established in 2013, the Hall of Fame serves to honour excellence, integrity and leadership in Canada's investment industry.

"We are proud to honour outstanding individuals who have contributed to Canada's investment industry and are worthy of inclusion in the elite group of Inductees who entered the Hall of Fame in 2013 and 2014," says Ian Russell, IIAC president and CEO. "These individuals represent the core values of our industry: Excellence, innovation and integrity."

A maximum of four living and four posthumous candidates are inducted into the IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame annually. Nominations will be accepted up to 17:00 ET on May 22.

A selection committee comprised of distinguished Canadians from across the country who work — or have worked — in politics, the law, academia, business or the investment industry are responsible for considering and naming the Hall of Fame Inductees. No one associated with the IIAC is part of the selection process.

This year's successful nominees will be inducted at a dinner ceremony and celebration on Oct. 29 in Toronto.

Nomination details, including criteria, can be found on the IIAC website.
