They have given much to the investment industry and capital markets, and given back much to their communities and to Canada.

Posthumous Inductees




John Pearce Bunting
1929 – 2017
Former President and CEO, Toronto Stock Exchange

Mr. Bunting attended McGill University and earned a Bachelor of Commerce in 1952. After a brief training period at McLeod, Young, Weir, Mr. Bunting joined his family’s retail brokerage business, Alfred Bunting & Company. As President and CEO, he transitioned the firm to a predominantly “institutional boutique”. He became deeply involved in Toronto Stock Exchange (TSE) Committee work and, in 1977, was named President and Chief Executive Officer of the TSE—the role he held until his retirement in 1994.

Among the many highlights of his distinguished career in the Canadian financial services industry, Mr. Bunting holds the distinction of being the longest-serving President and CEO in TSE history. During his tenure, Mr. Bunting was a true visionary and marketplace innovator, leading the TSE to defining, historic achievements, including becoming the first exchange in the world to offer fully-automated trading with the launch of the Computer Assisted Trading System, or CATS, in 1977, and the development of the world’s first exchange traded fund, or ETF, in 1990. The innovative CATS system went on to be licensed or adapted by exchanges around the world, including those in Paris, Brussels, Madrid, Sao Paolo, Copenhagen, Sydney and Vancouver, and was in use until 2001.

Mr. Bunting also served as the President of the International Federation of Stock Exchanges from 1983-84. In 1984, he founded the International Capital Markets Group, which coordinated research studies on international securities trading by the International Federation of Stock Exchanges, the International Bar Association and the International Association of Accountants. His leadership of the International Federation of Stock Exchanges brought the TSE significant international profile and prestige.

Mr. Bunting’s charitable and community involvement in his lifetime included serving as Trustee, Appleby College Foundation; Board Member and Chair, Appleby College; Board Member, National Ballet of Canada; President, North Toronto YMCA; Director and Chair, St. John’s Rehabilitation Hospital; President, University Club of Toronto; and President, St. Patrick’s Benevolent Society of Toronto.

Peter Cundill
1938 – 2011
Founder, Peter Cundill & Associates Ltd.; Founder, Cundill Value Fund

Francis Peter Cundill was born in Montreal on 29 October 1938. He graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1960, became a Chartered Accountant in 1963 and a Chartered Financial Analyst in 1968. After several years as a senior executive of the Yorkshire Trust Group in Vancouver, he acquired control in 1975 of a small, failing mutual fund, The All Canadian Fund. This was later renamed The Cundill Value Fund.

He proceeded to transform the old fund by adopting the strict value investment style propounded by Professor Benjamin Graham. This produced a compound annual return of 13.2 per cent over 35 years and saw the assets managed by Peter Cundill and Associates increase from $7 million to just under $20 billion. He was a noted innovator in the deep value investment sphere who continued to refine this approach throughout his career. He characterized himself as an investor who invariably concentrated on trying to “buy a dollar for 50 cents” by identifying the precise margin of safety in every security acquired. He possessed an absolute passion for detailed analysis.

He was an inveterate globetrotter, both out of curiosity and a taste for exploration and because his investment outlook was completely international. His adage was “I don’t care what a company does or where it does it as long as it meets my criteria”. This attitude earned him the soubriquet of “the Indiana Jones of the investment world” and he was described admiringly by Barron’s, the leading American financial weekly, as “the bravest of the value investors.”

Peter earned many distinctions in his lifetime. In 1994, he was included in The Financial Times Global Guide to Investing, in which he was given his own nomenclature, “The Patient Purist”, under a chapter entitled “Learning from Living Legends”. In 2001, he was awarded The Analysts’ Choice Career Achievement Award as” the greatest mutual fund manager of all time”. He received a Fellowship from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2004 and was named a Lifetime Trustee of The Aspen Institute in 2006.

For Peter, maintaining a very high level of physical fitness was integral to the discipline and mental agility required to keep him at the top of his game professionally. He encouraged the same spirit among colleagues and friends with initiatives such as the annual Cundill Fitness Challenge.

He also established The Cundill Prize in Historical Literature at McGill University, which is by a considerable margin the largest of its kind in the world.
