BMO Nesbitt Burns recently celebrated its 100th anniversary, a major milestone for one of the largest wealth advisory firms in Canada. Investment firm Nesbitt Thomson was established in May 9, 1912 with the objective of assisting the development of electric utilities and, during the First World War, focused on raising money for the war effort through the issuance of Victory Bonds. The company grew to become a household name and, in 1987, was acquired by BMO Financial Group, the first bank/broker merger in the Canadian financial services sector. In 1994, the firm joined forces with Burns Fry Ltd. to create BMO Nesbitt Burns. Today BMO Nesbitt Burns has almost 1,400 investment advisors serving the needs of more than 200,000 individuals and businesses across Canada. Local staff of BMO Nesbitt marked the anniversary with a cke.Pictured left to right are Associate Investment Advisor Donna Rogers and Investment Advisors: David Dutcheshen, Shawn Veroba and Brian Kruger.
