Media source: Brand iD     |   January 10, 2023

The Business of You podcast published on January 10, 2023, features an interview with Danny Popescu, CEO of Harbourfront, sharing his guidance on the financial industry, how he strives to make Harbourfront a great place to work, and making an impact in our communities.  

“Money is not just made by investing in businesses in the stock market. You can invest in private businesses looking to invest capital. You have a lot more available in the pool of companies in the private space. Don’t be limited to public securities.” 

As CEO, Danny oversees the operations of Harbourfront Wealth Holdings’ four underlying businesses including its Investment Dealer, Asset Management Firm, and US investment arm.  

“Your employees need to understand why they’re doing what they’re doing. We teach them how they fit into the overall goal, and why their roles are valuable to the organization. We also try to speak to the end goal and vision, how they are benefitting the consumer.” 

Danny also created the Harbourfront Gives Foundation, which raises money for a number of Canadian charities. The Harbourfront Gives Foundation has donated over $300,000 to 54 charities as of July 2022.
