Meet The Team

Tyler H. Pinder - MBA, CIM
Assoc. Portfolio Manager

Tyler joined BMO Nesbitt Burns in January of 2011. Prior, he was a partner in a Calgary based communications firm responsible for growing and managing the public relations division. Tyler has been one of fastest growing advisors in the firm and was invited to Presidents Council in his third year with BMO Nesbitt Burns. Tyler's focus is on delivering and managing an attractive investment solution with low correlation to other asset classes, active equity discretionary management with core dividend growers and guiding clients with proper fixed income selection in this interest rate environment. Tyler firmly believes that clients' interests are best served by taking a fully diversified portfolio approach to investing and employing the principles of dollar-cost-averaging to take advantage of market volatility and enhance returns.
