Driven by clients. Designed for success.
Today is an important day for all of us here at Canaccord Genuity Group. We are unveiling a bold new logo that will become an integral element of all our communications, products and experiences.
In recent years we have worked hard to improve alignment across our operations and transform our business mix to create a Company that is capable of delivering more predictable and sustainable results.
In doing so, we have improved our business on every measure.
Culturally, we are more aligned than ever. We are collaborating across regions and businesses to deliver stronger results for our clients, and growing returns for our business.
We have substantially increased scale across our global wealth management operations while simultaneously extracting greater value from our capital markets businesses. We recently delivered our fourth consecutive quarter of profitability on an adjusted basis.
The benefit of our collective efforts has also been reflected in our share price performance. The value of our common shares has increased by almost 40% compared to one year ago, and Canaccord Genuity Group’s share price has delivered the strongest one-year return when compared to our independent wealth management and investment banking peers across Canada, the US and the UK.
As we advanced our long-term strategy, we began to explore whether our brand accurately reflected our core values and represented the Company that we have become. We agreed that we would make a change only when the positive changes we were making across the organization were significant and sustainable.
We believe that time is now.
Our brand is built on the idea that employees across our organization are driven to always do better - for our clients, our shareholders and our colleagues. By steadily evolving our platforms and expanding our client focus, while staying true to our independent roots, we have set new benchmarks for excellence to become an increasingly stronger company.
I am confident that our new visual identity captures the improved energy and engagement across our organization, as we leverage our shared strengths to do our best work.
We are driven by your success.
