Denys Calvin Elected as PMAC Chair of the Board of Directors

We are pleased to announce that Nexus’s own Denys Calvin has been elected as the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Portfolio Management Association of Canada (PMAC).

As Principal and Chief Operating Officer for Nexus, Denys ensures the business operates as smoothly as possible – while continuously improving – so we’re able to perform to the highest standards for clients. He also advises clients on the management of their portfolios and on various financial, tax and estate planning matters. Since joining Nexus in 2007, Denys has spearheaded many vital initiatives in the firm, including (but not limited to!) the launch of our on-line client portal. In addition to the operations of the firm, Denys is our trusted compliance officer.

Denys has represented Nexus as a member of PMAC since 2007, and as a Director since 2014. His involvement with PMAC has been instrumental in keeping Nexus on the leading edge of compliance and regulatory developments.

 “I’m very proud to be taking on the role of Board Chair at a time of unprecedented change in global markets, regulation and technological advances” – Denys Calvin

As a member firm of PMAC, we are part of a network of firms which benefit from the collaborative information-sharing business model of the association. Over the years, PMAC has been an active voice with provincial securities commissions on issues that affect investors and their managers. This has allowed us to provide feedback to regulators when we have felt there were possible improvements to be made to proposed industry regulation that would enhance the industry’s ability to serve clients.

Since our inception, Nexus has always been an active member and supporter of PMAC, and we continue to believe PMAC plays an important role in Canadian capital markets. We are proud to have Denys serve as Board Chair.
