Dr. Leslie Griesdorf, now retired from his successful career dental practice in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is a successful trader and investor on the TSE, the Toronto Stock Exchange. The TSE, or TSX as it is often abbreviated, is the ninth largest exchange in the world in market capitalization. The TSE is based in Griesdorf’s native Toronto and is a holding of TMX Group for the trading of senior equities.
Many different types of businesses are on the Toronto Stock Exchange, from income trusts and investment funds to exchange traded funds and split share corporations. Especially prominent on the Toronto Stock Exchange are mining, oil, and gas companies, more than on any other trading exchange. The TSE, where Leslie Griesdorf enjoys a successful second career as an investor and trader, began life with the Association of Brokers in 1852. This group morphed into the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1861 with 24 men at the Masonic Hall.
