Hedge Funds in Canada?Subscribe
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the hedge fund industry in Canada? If so, is recruiting similar to the US? UK? Is compensation similar to the US and UK?
What about Sales & Trading departments in Investment Banks still existent? Are there prop trading firms in Canada? What about asset management firms and the like? Which financial and trading hubs are there? I have heard that Toronto is one, is Montreal one too? What is the common language of Finance within Canada: English or French? I understand that French is the primary language of Montreal. And, how does the Canadian scene compare with London?
Finally, as a Canadian passport holder, how easy is it to get a job in the United States in the securities trading industry and how valued are Canadian degrees in comparison to British degrees in the US industry?
If anyone could shed any light on this, that would be great, thank you!
