Introduction Capital presents its first Manager Showcase, a virtual event offering investors and colleagues in our network an opportunity to hear from three best-in-class Canadian alternative investment managers. Principals from AGinvest Farmland Properties Canada, CMCC Capital Funds, and Rosalind Advisors will each speak about the establishment of their respective firms as well as provide an overview of their fund investment strategy, performance history and an explanation of the benefits of their chosen asset class. Each presentation will be followed by a moderated Q & A session.
