Profile & History

A Tradition Of Trust, Excellent Service and Expertise

The Wood Gundy partnership opened its doors for business in Toronto on February 1, 1905, specializing in underwriting and distributing municipal and provincial bonds. Its young founders, George Herbert Wood and James Henry Gundy, envisioned a financial services firm built on innovation, integrity and solid client relationships—values that the firm maintains today.

At a time when Canada was a country of savers, not investors, and financial management was largely restricted to corporations and the very wealthy, Wood and Gundy emerged as pioneers in the investment industry. The firm took an active role in the organization of Victory Loans during World War I and helped place war bonds in the hands of over one million Canadians.

With the rapid economic growth following the Second World War came increasing demand for sophisticated financial management expertise. Wood Gundy established itself as one of Canada's premier investment firms, financing new Canadian projects and providing investment advice to individual investors across the country.

Acquired by CIBC in 1988, what is now known as CIBC Wood Gundy has created a legacy of helping generations of Canadians meet their financial goals.

Today, CIBC Wood Gundy Investment Advisors across Canada continue to uphold the standards first envisioned by George Wood and James Gundy over a century ago to ensure our name remains synonymous with trust, excellent service and investment expertise.
