Jonid, who will respond to “Joni” around the office, is no stranger to hard work. Born in Albania, he arrived in Canada as a young teenager and went straight to work as a produce boy, a butcher, in retail, and as a restaurant server during his years at University of Toronto for accounting/finance. After a three-year stint at State Street as a pricing analyst, and where he was reportedly the company chess champ, he came to Investor Economics as an analyst focusing on the Retail Brokerage and Distribution Advisory Service and Fee-based Reports. When not working toward his CFA Level III designation, Joni swims with enthusiasm and has begun training in jiu jitsu. How this plays into his enjoyment of romantic dinners and long walks on the beach remains to be seen.
