2019-2020 PM Leaders

Nima Jeyrani 

Status: Portfolio Manager Leader


Profile: Born in Toronto and raised in Ottawa, Nima began his journey towards Finance in grade 12 with the help of a calculus teacher who pushed him to pursue a degree in economics. While Nima enjoyed his first year in the University of Ottawa’s economic program, he was driven to move away from the theoretical side of finance and begin applying his knowledge to more real-life scenarios. While certain Hollywood movies may have played a small role in sparking his interest in Capital Markets, it’s truly the opportunity to be challenged every day that has given him his drive. In his spare time, Nima enjoys skiing, swimming, and reading.
