Christian R. Strigl, CFA
Vice President and Portfolio Manager

I have been advising investors since 1994. After obtaining my Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance from Simon Fraser University, I began working with Majendie Securities, a high net worth boutique investment firm in Vancouver. Next, I moved to Edmonton to join Midland Walwyn, which evolved into Merrill Lynch and then CIBC Wood Gundy. In 1997, I obtained the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.

I joined a predecessor firm to Richardson GMP in 2007 to enjoy the freedom and scope to specialize in providing discretionary, fee-based portfolio management services, along with the flexibility to choose from a full universe of investment options without bias to any particular product or platform.

I have been a supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network and have always supported a number of my clients’ charitable causes. I am Past President of the Edmonton Society of Financial Analysts, and for fourteen years have taken part in the grading process at CFA Headquarters in Virginia. I enjoy the networking opportunities this affords me and also feel it is important to dedicate time to this valued designation. Fluent in German, I have also been active on the Board of the German and Canadian Business and Professional Association of Alberta.
