Today I wanted to touch on a different topic by sharing with our clients one way Cambridge is contributing to society this year. Throughout 2017 we have been participating in the Holland Bloorview Investor Challenge, a charitable competition focused on raising money for the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. For those of you who haven’t heard of Holland Bloorview, it is Canada’s largest children’s hospital for kids with disabilities and a global leader in care, education and research for this area. As a father of three, I am fortunate that none of my children have needed their services yet, but it is comforting to know there is a place dedicated to helping kids with disabilities and long-term recoveries to lead as normal a life as possible.
The challenge includes money managers from three firms. At the beginning of the year, we each invested on behalf of Holland Bloorview, and the value at the end of the year will be donated to the charity. We have been fortunate to have other supporters and strong markets this year (so far), making it a success to date. We are hoping to continue the momentum into year-end with additional donations through marketing and an event.
Throughout the year we have been featured on BNN and in the Globe and Mail. You can see the most recent BNN clip here.

Thank you for letting me use this forum to educate our followers about this worthwhile charity and to share one way Cambridge Global Asset Management is giving back this year.
