Hosting its third annual Vintage Wine Tasting at Toronto'a Shangri-La Hotel, Yorkville again created an atmosphere for clients to share, connect and learn more about financial markets, and to celebrate its fifth anniversary. Offering a mid-year update on Yorkville’s Portfolios, CEO Hussein Amad was joined onstage by Fixed Income Portfolio Manager, Robert Featherby, and Investment Analyst, Jillian Wade, in a light-hearted and entertaining panel discussion.
Many special guests such as Dr. Lyle Oberg (past Minister of Finance, Alberta and member of Yorkville's Business Advisory Group) were in attendance, as Yorkville presented its latest approach to investing in healthcare opportunities. In addition to the stunning atmosphere provided by the Shangri-La Hotel, three expert wine hosts were onsite specifically to match food station selections with exclusive vintage wines and to offer food pairing advice. Featured wine included rare “grower-champagnes” and rare single vineyard Burgundy selections. This special evening featured several wines of which only a few cases were imported to Canada.
