TSE past chair speaks


Fred Ketchen, past chair of the Toronto Stock Exchange and director of equity trading and senior VP at ScotiaMcLeod, will be speaking at the Ivey School of Business today from 3 to 4 p.m..

Ketchen's talk will last approximately 20 minutes and will be followed by a wine and cheese reception. "There'll be a question and answer period," said Kelly Hansen, investment executive at ScotiaMcLeod and coordinator of the event.

Hansen said Ketchen will talk about issues including the economy, inflation, interest rates and investment choices. "We thought [the visit to Western] would be a good friendship builder with the university and the business school," he said.
