PRESTIGOUS INDUSTRY AWARDS PRESENTED AT CNAM VIRTUAL CONFERENCE AFTER ONE YEAR HIATUS
TORONTO, ONTARIO, Wednesday May 26, 2021
Canadian Network of Asset Managers Association(CNAM) held its second virtual conference from Monday May 10th-Thursday May 13th, 2021. CNAM unfortunately did not present their annual Tereo, Ambassador or Student Research Symposium Awards in 2020 due to the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Though the world is still not back to an “old” or fully “new” normal, CNAM’s 2021 Virtual Conference: REFOCUS the Road Ahead, lived up to its name and was able to bring virtual connection akin to past conferences, including the return of the much-anticipated annual awards ceremony. As the industry assesses the changes created by the pandemic and looks ahead at both the challenges and opportunities in rebuilding, the awards ceremony allowed the industry to sit back and reflect on some amazing achievements of their peers and the next generation of asset managers.
