So long, we’ll miss you!

THE Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) has been kicking goals recently and much of the credit must go to visionary CEO Sophie Galaise who has been with the orchestra for the past two and a half years.

Galaise, who is French-Canadian, has just announced she is leaving us to become CEO of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. That sucks.

The money managers have started 2016 in a blue funk – but most are too young to remember what kicked off at the end of the 1980s and the fact that, with the exception of the instigator, we weren’t then doomed to years of economic gloom.

Both familiar and foreign, Canada has fine schools at bargain prices. But you'd better bundle up.

...Matthew Reid, an analyst at Sabal Financial Group in Newport Beach, Calif., attended the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill from 2009 to 2013.
