Invitation from the Co-Chairs


On behalf of the Toronto Finance Convention Committee and the Management Investment Club, we are pleased to formally invite members of the club to attend the 2012 Toronto Finance Convention. Building on the success of past years, the 2012 Toronto Finance Convention promises to be a unique opportunity for students and participating firms alike. First held in 2008, the Toronto Finance Convention is a three-day event aimed at exposing ambitious McGill students to the myriad of career opportunities that exist within the financial services industry. For many students, this will be a first exposure to business professionals outside the classroom. With the support of sponsoring firms, we hope to complement students formal education by building their understanding of the field, and exciting them about the prospects that await after graduation. This three-day event provides club members with the opportunity to hear from accomplished guest speakers, visit some of the top Canadian and International Banks and Asset Managers as well as network with numerous industry professionals. Similar to past years, approximately thirty undergraduate members of the club will be selected through an application and evaluation process. The charge for this years event will be $300 per student. Included in the fee is travel to and from Toronto, 3 nights stay at The One King West Hotel, a 4 star hotel in the heart of the city, 2 days of meals at the hotel as well as a gala dinner and cocktails. This years convention will be taking place from October 4th-6th with students leaving Montreal at 4:30pm on Wednesday October 3rd and returning on Saturday October 6th. Sponsors for past conventions include; JP Morgan, Bank of America, Fidelity Investments, Credit Suisse, Bank of Montreal, Scotia Bank and RBC with representatives from other firms attending both the cocktail and gala dinner. We encourage all students interested in the field of finance to apply as the convention offers unparalleled networking opportunities with professionals in the financial industry. Sincerely,
Devon Howard Co-Chair TOFC 2012 514-946-3394 devon.howard@mail.mcgill.ca Mohammad Awada Co-Chair TOFC 2012 514-442-5000 mohammad.awada@mail.mcgill.ca Henri-Luc Carlin Head, Convention Committee TOFC 2012 514-966-4466 henri-luc.carlin@mail.mcgill.ca
