Our Mission

Bridge to Capital Markets is a not-for-profit organization that strives to help top Canadian finance students obtain coveted positions in capital markets and asset management. We aim to bridge the gap between the top business students in Canada and the top Canadian financial institutions, fostering a virtuous cycle of recruitment over time.

Our Story

After actively participating in the interview process at leading Canadian financial institutions (both as a candidate and as an interviewer), our founder witnessed the inequities that separate the top recruiting universities from the others.

While providing advice to finance students of Eastern Canadian universities on an 'ad hoc' basis, he saw an opportunity to address the needs of students from multiple universities across the country, which resulted in the creation of Bridge to Capital Markets.
