Mackenzie Financial Conference

April 8, 2019 | Memo

Private Chat

Last week we attended a Mackenzie Financial conference and heard twelve speakers in eight hours. While that’s a heavy agenda and an exhausting day, it’s a great way to get a handle on what’s going on in the world, and how to invest now, from an impressive lineup of economists and money managers.
As a special treat we spent twenty minutes in a quiet corner chatting privately with Dina DeGeer, Team Leader on Mackenzie Canadian Growth Fund, one of Canada’s top Mutual Funds.
She’s one of our favourite money managers, and when you spend personal time with her a picture quickly emerges: she’s bright, strong and confident; this is a person up for the challenge of managing a Mutual Fund that is closely watched by professionals of all sorts. The spotlight, and the competitive world of professional money management, doesn’t seem to bother her one bit, in fact, she seems to flourish in it.
She told us that work is pretty much all she does (she rises at 3:00AM to do reading and research at home for a few hours before heading to Mackenzie’s Toronto head office). Her only hobby is greenhouse flower growing.
