Tiger 21, a peer-to-peer learning group for high net worth investors, has chosen leadership to spearhead its expansion into Canada.
Thane Stenner, who is the founder of Vancouver-based Stenner Investment Partners, and a director of wealth management at Richardson GMP, will serve as Tiger 21’s managing director - Canada. Richard Deacon, a business development specialist, joins as director of strategic partnerships.
Stenner will take the lead in growing Tiger 21’s membership into Canada. Deacon will focus on corporate partnerships in Canada as well as the US.
Deacon will align exclusive corporate partners with Tiger 21 through a new luxury partnership program. By invitation only, the program, created for a select few luxury brands and financial services partners, will offer access and exposure to members.
Tiger 21 announced its Canadian initiative in July with the first groups slated for Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal.
It will have a maximum of 56 Canadian members initially, with 14 members in each of the four cities who meet monthly.
Canadian membership will ultimately be capped at 112 members. Fees are $30,000 annually. Among the criteria for membership is $10 million in investable assets.
Also joining to support the Canadian expansion is Nancy Block Reid as director of membership based in New York. Reid will be part of the membership recruiting and nomination team, which also includes Martine Cunliffe, who will support the Canadian membership selection process.
Tiger 21 currently has approximately 140 members who collectively manage more than $10 billion in investable assets.
