Welcome to the first edition of the TFI newsletter. A new monthly newsletter for TFI members to keep them informed about TFI activities and important Toronto industry news and events. This edition and those to follow will feature:
- TFI initiatives including newly released reports and events
- Upcoming industry events
- A monthly blog by one of our Members discussing an important industry topic
I am very pleased that our first blog is by Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan’s Chief Risk & Strategy Officer, Barbara Zvan, titled Global investors find value in making a difference, profiling how 11 major investors agreed to work together and pledged to commit resources, expertise and networks to make a difference.
Where Opportunity Begins
September was a significant milestone month for TFI – we rebranded the organization to Toronto Finance International, introducing our new tagline Where Opportunity Begins, and through this more clearly communicated our continued broad commitment to representing and promoting the Toronto financial services sector across international markets. The new name also highlights the recognition Toronto has received as a global financial centre as a result of the stability and success of our financial institutions, our high-quality talent pool, and our reputation as a centre of innovation and cultural diversity. Additionally, the name change also allows us to shed the brand confusion resulting from the other well known “TFSA” (tax free savings account), and to maximize our digital reach and engagement. If you have not yet had the chance to visit our new website tfi.ca, I encourage you to check out all it has to offer.
As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any feedback or questions or if you’d like to be the next TFI blogger. I hope you find the newsletter of value and share it across your organization as you see fit.
