Mario Antinori was born and raised in Montreal. Upon graduation from Concordia University in 1998, Mario immediately entered the investment profession. He started at a leading independent investment counselling firm that was later bought out by a Canadian chartered bank. In 2001, Mario was recruited by Canada’s top private client
portfolio management group at a bank-owned investment dealer, then managing $700 million in clients’ assets. It was there, working with some of the country’s wealthiest individuals and families, that Mario’s investment philosophy was developed, nurtured and applied.
Very proud of his heritage, Mario is a Governor of the Fondazione Comunitario Italo-Canadese (FCCI) and a member of the Montreal chapter of the Canadian-Italian Business and Professional Association. Dedicated to the community, Mario is also a long-time contributor to the Canadian Cancer Society and volunteers his time with various organizations.
A cycling enthusiast, Mario has peddled his way up some of the most grueling mountain passes in Europe. Most notably the iconic Passo Stelvio at an elevation of 2,758 m above sea level.
