New Canadian Bond Investors’ Association Established

The newly established Canadian Bond Investors’ Association (CBIA) will hold its inaugural meeting on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto.

The new association has been formed to provide a forum for discussion and a voice for fixed income investors in Canada. Membership is open to fixed income institutional investors such as pension funds, insurance companies and independent investment counsels.

Founding Board Chair Joe Morin stated “the bond investor community needs an independent voice on matters in the Canadian fixed income market place. The legitimate interests of bond holders are often overlooked by other bond market participants.”

In addition to its primary objective of being an advocate for positive change in the Canadian bond market, the CBIA will be a source of market information and expertise for fixed income investors.
