Wilfred Hahn, MBA

Global Investment Strategist & Chief Compliance Officer

Wilfred brings unique global macroeconomic perspectives, spanning into the 5th decade of research and strategy experience.

Having worked in the global financial and investment industry during a distinguished career spanning now into the fifth decade, Wilfred brings unparalleled experience to the investment team. Extensive travels have brought Wilfred to over 60 countries around the world, allowing him a unique perspective on societies and geopolitical economy. Prior to founding Forstrong Global in 2001, Wilfred was CIO and Chairman of the Global Investment Group of the Royal Bank of Canada. The group’s many clients around the world included pension funds, corporations, mutual fund unit-holders and private individuals. He holds an MBA from the University of Western Ontario. 

Privately, Wilfred has many interests. His love of music spans from popular to classical … having played violin in several orchestras. In recent years he has taken up the hobby of restoring air-cooled vehicles. His most recent find was a rare 1966 VW Double Cab, found in the Yukon. Wilfred maintains that making something tangible with ones hands is a steadying offset to following volatile world affairs.
