Michael Sabia speaks at New York-Montreal Luncheon Seminar
More than 170 representatives from New York's financial community attended the second New York-Montreal Luncheon Seminar on November 13 at the New York Yacht Club. This event was organized by the International Financial Centre of Montreal in close cooperation with the Québec Government Office in New York City in order to position Montreal as an attractive destination for financial institutions and promote the cost-effectiveness of the financial services industry in the Montreal region.
Its guest speaker was Michael Sabia, President and CEO of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, who presented an eloquent analysis of the international financial situation and pointed out that the Caisse continues to gain ground in the U.S. market, especially in the commercial real estate sector.
