History and Culture
Leede Financial Markets Inc.’s roots were founded in 1987 as a regional retail brokerage house in Calgary. In 2001 a new ownership group was established and the firm name was changed to Leede Financial Markets Inc. Over the next two years, the Vancouver office was opened and a seasoned and dedicated management team came together to create one of Western Canada’s most successful independent investment dealers. With the addition of offices in Kamloops, Brandon and Red Deer, Leede Financial became one of the fastest growing entrepreneurial firms.
Jones, Gable and Company Limited was established in Toronto in 1965 and has grown over the next 50 years to include offices in Vancouver, Montreal, Fredericton, and several smaller Ontario centres. Jones Gable has a long history of focusing on delivering superior client service. Jones Gable & Company is also active in assisting companies with obtaining access to the capital markets.
The combined firm has over 200 employees, and continues to continue to grow the breadth of products and services offered to clients through the addition of highly qualified advisors and management personnel across Canada.
100% Employee Owned
One of the distinguishing characteristics of Leede Jones Gable is that it retains the relaxed, friendly atmosphere of a family enterprise. Today, this employee-owned firm has approximately 100 shareholders that are working hard to ensure the firm continues its dedication to service into the future.
As Leede Jones Gable is owned entirely by its employees, perhaps it is not surprising that our people are committed to success—their clients’, the company’s, and their own.
