Central to our success is our Canadian franchise. After all, this is the origin of our business and our core expertise. We are recognized in Canada as an industry-leading independent firm, our core Canadian securities franchise, GMP Securities, is consistently recognized as a top ranked common equity underwriter and advisor to the domestic capital markets. The Canadian broker dealer is as relevant and dynamic today as it was two decades ago. In addition, with our partners at Richardson GMP, we have built Canada’s largest influential independent wealth management firm. By leveraging the strategic linkages between GMP Securities and Richardson GMP, we believe, we have created a formidable independent alternative to the Canadian banks.

There is no question that the competitive landscape has changed. The change, we believe, is permanent and is led by technology-driven disintermediation, increased regulation, the sustained trough in the global commodity cycle and Canadian banks increasing their presence in the small- to mid-cap segment of the domestic market. We must adapt to the realities of the new normal facing our industry, or cease to be viable. In response, we substantially restructured our Capital Markets business, sharpening our focus on the areas in which we excel. I believe, there will always be room for a strong and viable independent broker dealer, like GMP. As we have done for the past 20 years, we will continue to play an integral role in the efficient functioning of the Canadian capital markets ecosystem.
