TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Roth Canada, ULC (“Roth Canada”), an investment bank focused on serving emerging growth companies and their institutional investors, today announced that Braden “Brady” Fletcher, upon obtaining regulatory approval, will join the firm as President and Head of Investment Banking. Roth Canada is a sister company to Roth Capital Partners, LLC (“Roth) – www.roth.com, a US investment bank which has worked with emerging growth companies for over 30 years.
Prior to joining Roth, Brady was most recently Managing Director and Head of the TSX Venture Exchange at TMX Group, where he led the organization’s strategy, policy development, and growth for four years. During that time, Brady also served on the Ontario Securities Commission’s Fintech Advisory Committee, and the Alberta Securities Commission’s Market Advisory Committee. Prior to joining the Exchange, he founded Blackbook Technologies, Inc, was Director of Strategic Relationships with Chrysalix Energy Ventures, a leading Cleantech Venture Capital firm, and an investment banker with Byron Capital Markets and Canaccord Genuity Corp.

We are pleased to be partnering with Brady to establish Roth Canada as a leading investment banking firm serving the Canadian marketplace,” said Ted Roth, CEO of Roth Canada.
Mr. Fletcher commented, “Accessing US and international investors is a key challenge for many Canadian companies, or companies that have successfully leveraged public venture capital to fund their growth through a Canadian listing. Roth’s track record of financing growth stage companies, and providing aftermarket support through their US platform and international distribution, represents a true opportunity to support those companies seeking expansion of their investor base. I’m excited to join this team, and to build a leading dealer supporting growth stage companies across Canada and our markets.”
Brady holds a B.SC in Computer Engineering from Queen’s University.
