Bank of Montreal Chief Economist Sherry Cooper to Retire
Bank of Montreal, the country’s fourth-largest bank by assets, said chief economist Sherry Cooper will retire from the bank in January after a 30-year career.
Cooper, 62, a member of the 12-economist Economic Advisory Committee of the American Bankers Association, will retire Jan. 30, the Toronto-based bank said today in a statement. A replacement will be named next week or earlier, Cooper said.
“She brings clarity to the complexity of global economics and finance — insights that have been invaluable to BMO and its clients,” Bank of Montreal Chief Executive Officer William Downe said in the statement.
