Strengthening our Global Metals & Mining Team

31st May 2021

Please join us in welcoming Eric (Tao) Zou as Managing Director, Head of Investment & Corporate Banking - China.

Eric will be responsible for building up our new China presence across all industries with a strong focus on Metals and Mining where he will partner closely with CG’s leading global Metals & Mining teams, which span the UK, Canada, Latin America, and Australia.

Eric brings close to 15 years of capital raising and advisory experience to his role. He was most recently Chief Representative of BMO Capital Markets’ Beijing Investment Banking office, and was a member of the BMO CM Metals & Mining group in Toronto from 2007 to 2009, and in China from 2009. Eric is a well-connected, experienced banker with deep industry relationships, having worked with many notable mining, infrastructure and renewable energy companies in China. He has been involved in numerous M&A transactions involving Chinese-based entities across many sectors.

Canaccord Genuity’s China banking coverage will be led by Eric from our Beijing office, and is consistent with our growth strategy of identifying new business initiatives and markets that leverage our global franchise. Canaccord Genuity has a long-established history of leadership in the Metals & Mining sector. In 2020, CG was the #1 ranked investment bank globally for proceeds raised in this sector. Our Metals & Mining Investment Banking team is supported by 12 analysts across several continents delivering award-winning global equity research coverage, in addition to integrated sales, trading and ECM teams, which offer market leading execution capability and access to relevant investors in key markets around the globe.

China will be an increasingly important participant in the global capital markets, and we are confident that Eric’s experience and partnership will make him a great addition to our global investment banking team with a focus on our metals and mining platform.
