Michael Simpson, CFA
I am an experienced seasoned Portfolio Manager who has a goal of growing the assets of the Dividend Champions Fund and providing excellent risk-adjusted returns.
What I enjoy about work
The challenge of the markets, discovering a company that the market has ignored, neglected or refused to acknowledge. There are themes or waves in the market but everyday is different.
How I got here
I started at the bottom at Nesbitt Thomson as a bond interest clerk, took industry courses, completed the CFA program, was luck enough to be mentored by an experienced Portfolio Manager at Dynamic Funds and absorbed as much as I could.
What I do outside of work
l enjoy physical fitness, both outdoor and indoor, and travelling to new locations.
If you work hard and long enough, you will achieve your goals. In other words, never give up.
