September 2019

We hope that you had a great summer, and that you are feeling rested and full of energy!

For us, the fall is looking very fruitful. That is because GMP Capital has decided to sell its financial market activities, and to concentrate on wealth management. As a result, GMP Capital will carry out a transaction this fall to purchase all shares of Richardson GMP (of which it already owns a third).

This transaction will not affect your accounts in any way. However, it will help us consolidate our leading position in the wealth management field in Canada. Furthermore, GMP Capital and the Richardson Family have reaffirmed their commitment to continuing to enhance your services and client experience.

Until next time!
