Wes Dearborn joined VCIM in December 2019 as a Portfolio Manager, bringing 15 years of fixed income analysis, portfolio management, and trading experience to the team. As a member of the Fixed Income team, he is responsible for day-to-day management of all fixed income assets across mutual funds, pooled funds, and segregated accounts. These include the VCIM Bond Fund, VCIM Short Duration Bond Fund, and the IA Clarington Inhance Bond SRI Fund. Prior to VCIM, Wes spent 10 years working on the Fixed Income team at Guardian Capital in Toronto, managing over $6 billion in assets.
Wes earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree (Honours), with a concentration in Finance from Brock University and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation. He spends most of his time outside of work in the Tri-Cities community with his wife and very active young daughter. The endless parks, trails, and waterways offer amazing opportunities to explore, learn, and play in nature. In his own spare time, he likes to sneak in a run, get out on his bike or try his luck at fishing.
Wes’ passion for the environment and community is very well aligned with VCIM’s core values and its responsible investing platform.
