Patrick McCarthy is a senior professional at an authorized financial intermediary in eastern Canada’s Quebec province. Currently, he is the Immigrant Investor Program Director at Sherbrooke Street Capital (SSC) in Montreal.
The Canadian investment dealer, SSC, was founded in 2004. Apart from providing traditional financial services – wealth management, capital markets – SSC is the leading financial intermediary for Quebec's Immigrant Investor Program (QIIP). SSC’s business model is entirely B2B – they do not solicit clients directly for the IIP. Rather, their energy is focused on serving immigration practitioners and other professionals who are working with high-net-worth individuals, to ensure they have the tools and information they need to serve their QIIP clients. Through this model, QIIP clients benefit from the expertise of both their independent immigration counsel and Sherbrooke Street Capital’s in-depth knowledge of the program.
McCarthy has been involved with Canada's Immigrant Investor Program for 25 years. Since 2015, he has been with SSC, where as the Immigrant Investor Program Director he has been working closely with and supporting immigration practitioners as they develop their Immigrant Investor Program business.
Prior to that, he worked under the umbrella of ScotiaMcLeod (part of the Scotiabank Group) for 15 years during which he was based in China, Singapore apart from Montreal. Before that he was with the Citizenship & Immigration Canada's Business Immigration Unit, working on the team responsible for managing Canada’s Immigrant Investor Program.
McCarthy is a Chartered Professional Accountant; he holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Regina as well as a post-graduate diploma in management accounting from the Concordia University.
He speaks English and French.
