Odlum Brown Limited is proudly celebrating its 90th year in the investment industry, and 15 years in the Comox Valley.

Well over 100 investors attended Odlum Brown’s recent annual address at Crown Isle, one of seven presentations around the province providing investors with a new perspective on the economy and markets.

Hank Cunningham, Odlum Brown’s Fixed Income Strategist and frequent guest on the Business News Network (BNN), provided insight on fixed income strategies and handed out signed copies of his latest book, In Your Best Interest.

In an upbeat and optimistic presentation by Murray Leith, vice-president and director of investment research, Murray spoke about the current investment climate and highlighted a number of quality companies that should offer investors growth prospects over the coming years.

Also speaking at the event was president and CEO Debra Hewson, recently inducted into the Women’s Executive Network’s Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Hall of Fame. Debra reflected on the many changes in the industry since the firm’s inception in 1923.

“Reflecting on the changes in the investment industry over the past nine decades offers insight and reassurance for investors,” stated Janine Martin, branch manager and portfolio manager at the Courtenay branch. “It is really comforting to know that the culture and core values that are so important to the longevity of Odlum Brown remain just as important today as they did 90 years ago,” Martin added.

For investors looking for a new perspective on the markets, video recordings are available at odlumbrown.com.
