Canaccord Genuity Group president and CEO Dan Daviau said: “The financial performance that we achieved in our fourth quarter and fiscal year clearly demonstrates that we are operating at a stronger level than any period in our history, and that is a testament to the power of our global platform and the incredible efforts put forth by our employees across the organisation.
“While we anticipate that activity levels in our core midmarket focus areas could moderate in the coming quarters, we are pleased to be starting fiscal 2022 with an even stronger wealth management franchise, expanded market share in our core sectors and geographies, and compelling prospects for expanding our product capabilities.”
In April, Canaccord agreed to buy Adam & Company’s private client investment management business for £54m. The deal will enable CGWM UK enter Scottish market.
