A big city Toronto native who grew up in small town Guelph, Ted has been in the industry since 1991. That’s when he graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a BA in Economics and Political Science. Interested in the investment world, Ted answered a newspaper ad for a marketing services position at Trimark. He later became a wholesaler there before launching a software company, Coign Technology, in 2000. After selling Coign, he was hired as a Canadian large-cap analyst by Patient Capital Management in 2001. He then rejoined Trimark as an analyst in 2003 and was soon promoted to a portfolio manager, responsible for Canadian, U.S. and global small-cap mandates. Ted now flexes his investment muscles as a portfolio manager at EdgePoint. Ted’s investment achievements have been recognized with numerous awards. More importantly, Ted gets the prize for best dad from his three children, especially after making them extra proud with his stories of playing elite league hockey in Sweden as a youngster.
