John Horwood: Portfolio for good (Episode 004)

Mark PetersenPodcast

In Episode 004 of the Stronger Philanthropy Podcast, we meet John Horwood, Director, Wealth Management at Richardson GMP, one of Canada’s most significant boutique investment firms.  John’s daily work in Toronto’s Financial District involves balancing and growing the portfolios of his top tier clients.  He has also learned to let go, and gives generously but shrewdly through our annual collaborative grantmaking initiative called Stronger Together.

Join us in this fascinating conversation where we discover more about wealth management, the need for due diligence in philanthropy, exiting the charity swamp, investing in charitable startups and innovation, and avoiding the duplication of activity.

Quote of the podcast:

“[Innovation] certainly exists in the disruptive phase of the business cycle we’re in, where very small amounts of capital and new ideas are truly changing things … It’s needed in the faith-based community right now because we’ve got lots of challenges.” –John Horwood
