Daniel Child, CFA, CPA, CA
Founder, Portfolio Manager
After graduating from Ivey Business School, Daniel embarked on a public accounting career. He earned his Chartered Accountancy designation and then changed gears, securing a job as a bond trader at CIBC in 1994. Three years later he moved to Scotiabank Global Banking & Markets where he rose to Head Corporate Bond Trader. He actively traded and made markets for 11 years with responsibility for Scotia’s Canadian corporate bond portfolio and MBS/ABS book. Daniel priced hundreds of new issues and traded billions of dollars of the Bank’s capital in bonds while employing risk management that allowed him to successfully report to the Bank’s Liability Committee. In 2010, Daniel combined his risk and credit expertise with his entrepreneurial spirit and founded YTM Capital. His vision is to provide investors with income solutions that protect on the downside and optimize the potential for strong risk-adjusted returns.

Daniel received an Honours Business Administration degree from the Ivey School of Business, University of Western Ontario.
