Wall, who has worked at the investment firm’s Canadian headquarters in Mississauga since 1998, is an expert in attracting and developing the elusive millennial market. In fact, her talent development initiatives routinely land the company a spot on the Top Employers in Canada list year after year. In particular, Wall offers a comprehensive program that trains employees to be financial advisors, even if their backgrounds aren’t in business or finance.

“On top of the regular, extensive training that every new advisor receives, this is an additional rotation through the home office, which gives them a little bit more grounding and exposure to the industry and, certainly, to the culture in our firm and how we serve clients,” Wall noted in Maclean’s magazine.
