Charles Lemay appointed president of Emerging Managers Board

We are pleased to announce that Charles Lemay, partner at Walter Global Asset Management, accepted the presidency of the Emerging Managers Board (EMB). He is taking over from Geneviève Blouin, founder and now Vice President, who acted in that role over the past eight years.

As the new president, Mr. Lemay intends to continue the mission of the EMB by helping managers adopt the best industry standards and by making them shine throughout North America. Concerned about the health of the Canadian financial ecosystem, he shares with the other members of the Board the strong conviction that the industry has many talented managers whose success depends on a strong entrepreneurial asset management sector. Together, they can ensure succession and sustainability for the financial ecosystem by providing the tools and visibility necessary for the growth of local managers.

In addition, Mr. Lemay collaborates with the Quebec Emerging Manager Program as member of the advisory committee since the end of 2021.
