Mark Deriet, CMT, CFA

Quantitative and Technical Analyst
Cormark Securities Inc

Mark Deriet is the Quantitative and Technical Analyst for Cormark Securities Inc (previously Sprott Securities), a leading Canadian independent investment dealer.  Mark is the recipient of the Brendan Wood TopGun award for Technical Analysis for more than 15 consecutive years. 

Mark served over 10 years on the buyside combining both fundamental and quant/technical analysis into his investment process.  In this role Mark was able to interface with many technical research analysts incorporating tools and concepts into his top-down approach.

Having earned both the CFA and CMT designations, Mark appreciates the pros and cons of both disciplines. Investing primarily in Europe and emerging markets, Mark developed screening tools to isolate leaders and laggards across the vast array of securities within his mandate.  

Over the past 17 years, Mark has served in a sell-side role at Cormark Securities, representing their first foray into the technical and quantitative research arena. While in his current role at Cormark, Mark developed research products including top-down macro indicators to identify opportunities in sectors, industry groups, and among various factors as well as bottom-up stock screens.  

When not chasing fresh powder in Whistler, Mark’s next endeavor is to launch a fund based on his proprietary quantitative momentum models later this year.  

Mark holds a bachelor’s degree in communication from the University of Toronto in 1993, and a master’s degree in economics at the University of Ottawa in 1995. In 1998, he became a Chartered Financial Analyst, Association for Investment Management and Research and in 2004 he became a Chartered Market Technician from CMT Association.
