Andrew Foote, CFA

Investment Advisor

Andrew joined Canaccord Genuity after 25 years as a successful head trader and managing director at RBC, CIBC, and Raymond James. His years of experience investing on behalf of large institutions and managing risk for his employers have given him a unique perspective on the markets and individual stock selection. This has allowed him to create tailored, dynamic portfolios on behalf of private clients. 

He is a deep value, contrarian style of investor, preferring mid and large-sized companies, most of which would be considered “Blue Chip’ and pay dividends. He develops ‘bespoke’ personalized portfolios for his clients consisting of up to 40 names across multiple geographies and industry groups.
Andrew and his family enjoy skiing, tennis, and summers on Georgian Bay. He is a long time supporter of Plan Canada, United Way of Toronto, Queens University, and the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
