Kurtis is currently a second year student in the Queen’s Commerce program at Smith School of Business and has recently completed his Canadian Securities Course (CSC) certification. He now serves as Chief Investment Officer of Queen’s Capital, previously working with the Consumers & Macro Strategy group.
During the summer of 2015, Kurtis completed a four month internship with RBC Global Asset Management. In his internship, Kurtis quickly became engaged in the work of those around him – the traders, analysts, and portfolio managers – and was later offered the opportunity to work on a number of projects with the Canadian Equities team, including the opportunity to present his work to GAM’s Chief Investment Officer, as well as GAM’s London and Vancouver offices.
Kurtis began investing at the early age of thirteen, and has been a passionate student of finance ever since. Having begun his investing endeavours under the principles of Benjamin Graham, Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett, and Joel Greenblatt, Kurtis strongly believes in using a contrarian mindset that goes hand in hand with true value investing.
Kurtis enjoys golfing, water skiing, playing hockey, wakeboarding, reading, and managing his personal account. Kurtis fell in love with the game of golf at the age of twelve, later competing on both the Canadian Junior Golf Association (CJGA) and Golf Association of Ontario (GAO) tour.
