In 2014 Michael joined Roynat Capital, the merchant banking subsidiary of Scotiabank, eventually leading its operations throughout Québec. He oversaw three teams of professionals responsible for the origination, execution and ongoing management of senior and junior debt transactions primarily in the context of acquisitions, expansion projects and recapitalizations.
