As head of research at T.E. Investment Counsel (TEIC), Lubaba leads the investment manager selection and ongoing due diligence functions. Her role involves staying abreast of changes in the market and economy, researching new asset managers and monitoring and maintaining sound relationships with managers currently recommended by TEIC. She also supports our investment counsellors in the development of investment strategies, including asset allocation and manager selection.
Having always been fascinated by capital markets, a career in finance was a logical choice for Lubaba. Since joining TEIC in 2012, she has served as National Manager of Prosperity Pooled Funds as well as Research Analyst and Associate Investment Counsellor. In these roles, she developed an understanding of the industry as well as our business, philosophy and culture from the ground up. Her experience as a research analyst primed her with the fundamentals of manager research, and nurtured relationships that she brought into her current role.
Lubaba graduated from the University of Toronto with high distinction, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business administration (BBA) in the finance stream. She is registered as an associate investment counsellor with the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) and is a CFA charter holder.
To de-stress, Lubaba partakes in various forms of dance including hip hop, Latin and Indian classical. She also enjoys visiting Toronto’s many must-try restaurants with other foodie friends.
