Black finance pros launch fund in Canada for Black-led companies

A group of Black executives is launching a new fund to invest in Black-controlled companies and organizations in Canada as a way to combat systemic racism.

The Black Opportunity Fund has “highly aspirational” goals for raising funds and will “meld investment capital and social capital together with philanthropy,” according to Ray Williams, managing director and vice chairman at National Bank Financial.
