Stonecap Announces New Sales & Trading Hires

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2011) - Stonecap Securities Inc. is pleased to announce that it has hired a team of institutional salesmen and traders. The team, comprised of Doug Van Peteghem, Grant Beasley, Earle McMaster, Gord Fernandes and Michael Graham previously worked together at another independent domestic investment dealer.

The ability to attract a team of this quality represents an important step forward in achieving our corporate objective to become a top tier independent Canadian investment dealer by strengthening our institutional distribution capability and significantly expanding our reach with corporate clients.

Stonecap was founded on a number of key tenets which differentiate us amongst both large and small investment dealers in today's environment, including:

  • Employee ownership;
  • A flat ownership structure; and
  • A transparent compensation structure.

These tenets remain the foundation of our platform today.

"When we established the firm, we were confident that we would be able to attract talented individuals to help us build upon our success as a reputable firm with established client relationships and solid infrastructure.

Our ability to attract this group of quality individuals is a testament to the fact that the Stonecap platform offers talented professionals with a unique opportunity to help grow our franchise. Together with our recent success in expanding our Calgary office earlier this year, this transaction clearly demonstrates and will accelerate our momentum." said Jeff White, CEO of Stonecap.

The new team is expected to start work on December 1, 2011.
