Canaccord Genuity president and CEO Dan Daviau said: “Our US capital markets business has become an increasingly stronger regional competitor and this acquisition advances our priority of investing in areas of higher margin potential, as we continue to position our company for increased stability and long-term profitability.

“The addition of Petsky Prunier creates an exceptional opportunity for our North American capital markets business, while simultaneously enhancing long-term value for our partners and shareholders.”

A month ago, the UK and Europe wealth management unit of Canaccord Genuity acquired Worcester-based financial advisory firm McCarthy Taylor.
