Canada’s Top 40 Under 40: John Molson alum makes the list

Finance executive says Concordia contributed to his success


Daniel Schlaepfer, a graduate of JMSB’s MBA in Investment Management program, has been named to Canada's Top 40 Under 40® list.

Schlaepfer was among the 40 individuals selected by an independent advisory board comprising 25 respected and experienced individuals from across Canada. The call for nominations was carried out from October 2018 to January 2019, and garnered 950 nominations from across the country.

The honourees were highlighted in the National Post, will be profiled in a feature article in the October edition of FP Magazine, and will also be featured on BNN Bloomberg in an interview series, Canada's Next Leaders, throughout the summer.

Schlaepfer is president and CEO of Select Vantage Inc. and says that what we learned in the MBA in Investment Management program has contributed to his success.

“I’m in a field where, previously, there wasn’t a lot of academic credibility. Guys would rely purely on their instincts. Because of my education, the exchanges and banks took our firm more seriously. My MBA and CFA (chartered financial analyst) credentials gave me the skills to present what we do to the industry in a more data-oriented, professional way.”

Schlaepfer and the other recipients will receive their awards at the Top 40 Awards Night Gala at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on the night of November 6, 2019.

Earlier this summer, Schlaepfer was named to Concordia’s 50 Under 50 Shaping Business list.
