I am pleased to announce that BMO Capital Markets has agreed to sponsor me during my year of competitive international chess. BMO Capital Markets is an integral component of the Bank of Montreal, one of the biggest and most prestigious banks in the world. I am honoured to have BMO Capital Markets as a sponsor.

I am currently sponsored by three Canadian business leaders: Muir Detlefsen & Associates Limited, Front Street Capital, and BMO Capital Markets. While the financial support of my sponsors is certainly extremely important to me, equally as important is the moral support I derive from my association with such high-class organizations. To have them as sponsors ranks high on my list of accomplishments. My sponsors let me know that I am not on my own in my journey to compete against the world’s best as I try reach new heights, and represent Canada with pride. It’s very encouraging to know that they are behind me every step of the way.

I am grateful for the support of my sponsors, who have made this year possible. They have allowed me to focus on doing what I do best and playing the game that I love. I will honour my association with them by continuing to perform and conduct myself at the highest professional level. I am proud to carry their names on this journey.

You can find the logos of my sponsors on the top banner, and a description of each on the Sponsors Page.

    Congratulations on getting a new sponsor.

    I never understand how professional chess players can make enough money just from playing. I guess having sponsors is important in your line of work.
