In our community: A special evening at Kay Meek Centre

By Victoria Rogers

March 24, 2017

Earlier this week, my partner Kim Mailey and I were delighted to attend a very special event at the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver. The Chairman’s Reception is held in honour of Kay Meek Centre supporters, and is hosted by Chair of the Board, Nancy Spooner. Mailey Rogers Group has sponsored the Kay Meek Centre for nearly a decade – almost as long the theatre has been open! At present, we are the ‘Season Sponsor’ for the centre (our seventh year in this role), and were recognized as such at the reception. What an incredible evening it was!

The reception gave the Mailey Rogers Group the opportunity to mingle with fellow Kay Meek Centre supporters. While Brie and Tannis were introduced to the new board members, Kim and I enjoyed mingling with KMC Legacy Council members Susanna Bell-Irving Gray, Liz Byrd and Maggie Pappas (who sung the praises of our new Executive Director Rob Gloor). These were just a few of the wonderful guests who make up the Kay Meek Centre family.

February 2017 Review and Market Outlook

Market commentary by Kim Mailey

March 3, 2017

The Market Clearly Likes the New U.S. Administration!

The global markets notched impressive gains in February – boosted further for Canadian investors because of the 2% decline in the loonie during February.

In my view, fundamentals remain constructive for risk asset classes (equities) to once again be the best performing asset class in 2017. Equities are being propelled higher from strengthening economic growth, declining volatility, rising inflation and bond yields, low recession probabilities, improving flow of funds into equities and a recovery in corporate earnings growth.
