Episode Info:

David Barr is the President and CEO of Pender. He is also the Portfolio Manager of several of Pender’s funds. The Pender Small Cap Opportunities Fund, which he manages, has won a Lipper Fund Award in 2015, 2016 and 2017 for Best Canadian Small/Mid Cap Equity Fund over both three and five year performance periods. The Lipper Awards recognize consistently strong performance relative to peers. The Fund has also received a Fundata FundGrade A+ Award in each of the last six years, with the Pender Value Fund winning in 2016 and 2017. The A+ ranking is based on an objective rating system that tracks risk-adjusted returns. David holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of British Columbia and an MBA from the Schulich School of Business. He earned his Chartered Financial Analyst designation in 2003 and is a past President of CFA Society Vancouver, having also served on its Board of Directors for four years. He remains an active member. David is a regular guest on BNN’s Business Day program and has been interviewed for his opinions on small cap companies, the technology sector and value investing by the Financial Post, The Globe & Mail and other media. In December 2012 David was recognised as one of British Columbia’s “Top Forty Under 40” business leaders by Business in Vancouver.
