Grenadian to be awarded at Toronto Benefit Gala

A family’s ability to create and pass on generational wealth, including assets such as cash, investments, and property, determines a family’s financial success. Historical injustice and a lack of access to financial services created a racial wealth gap between white and black families, excluding the latter from creating generational wealth.

Ray Williams, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Financial Markets at National Bank Financial knows how these disparities can have tangible and far-reaching implications for black families in Canada and worldwide. Williams, a Grenadian by birth, dedicates his career to addressing anti-Black racism through social and economic empowerment by establishing the Black Opportunity Fund, of which he is Co-Founder and Chair.
