Our Principals

James K. Lau MBA



“You just need to be half a step ahead of the rest to be first”.

Mr. Lau is the consummate entrepreneur.  His relentless pursuit of being the very best has led him to achieve certain feats that few individuals have accomplished, including founding a Schedule I Canadian chartered bank.

Mr. Lau started out as a financial analyst, covering the “special situations” sector.  In addition to stocks, he also traded bonds, foreign exchange and other derivatives, before founding Jameson International Foreign Exchange Corporation (“Jameson FX”), a company established to help corporations hedge their foreign exchange exposure.   Jameson FX was one of the most prestigious and successful foreign exchange companies in Canada, generating an average ROE of consistently 100% and a ROI of 18% over the span of 18 years.   As a result of his accomplishments, Mr. Lau was nominated E&Y’s Enterpreneur Of The Year.  Mr. Lau then turned Jameson FX  into Canada’s #22 Schedule I bank – Jameson Bank.  He was the Bank’s largest and controlling shareholder.  In addition to Jameson, Mr. Lau also launched a fund of funds in 1999, with $100mm USD of assets under management.  In 2017, Mr. Lau teamed up with a Middle East investment group and invested in Titan Reinsurance Ltd based in Bermuda.

Mr. Lau holds a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering and a MBA degree from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.  He resides in Toronto with his wife of 28 years and 5 children.
