Outsourced Chief Investment Officer - Part 1 of 2

Join Jason and Steve for a discussion of the role of the Outsourced Chief Investment Officer on the CE Drive Podcast.

Earlier this year our Chief Investment Officer Steve Adang sat down with Jason Watt on the CE Drive podcast. This podcast was produced by the BC Business Career College as part of their continuing education credit program for Canadian Financial Planners and Insurance Agents. Jason Watt is a full-time instructor and CEO of the Business Career College. He works at producing materials and the professional development of instructors at the college. Also, he moderates many continuing education seminars.

This two-part interview provides an overview of discretionary investment management and as stated by Jason you hear Steve “nerd[s] out on those investment regulations, investment industry details.”

This conversation covers:

  • Registration categories for investment professionals.

  • Regulation requirements for Investment Counsel / Portfolio Managers (ICPM)

  • Differences between the US and Canadian markets

  • The history of discretionary investment management

  • Investor protection

  • Fiduciary relationships

  • Buy-side and sell-side
