Lynne Foran

Chief Compliance Officer

“If it is not right, do not do it. If it is not true, do not say it” – Marcus Aurelius

As a compliance and regulatory professional, it is a pleasure for me to work with an elite team of dedicated and talented professionals who are committed to serve with expertise and integrity. Grayhawk has built a stellar reputation as a prudent and vigilant caretaker of family capital, striving to nurture the prosperity of the Grayhawk family of clients and their future generations.

Lynne is pleased to join our team on an interim basis while our Compliance Manager, Alaya Khatkhate, is on maternity leave. Lynne’s career in financial services law spans more than 25 years working primarily in emerging financial services policy and regulation.  Throughout her career, Lynne has advocated for internal policy development as a core culture to a firm’s brand and where possible to use technology as the underpinning of robust compliance with financial services regulation.

Lynne articled and practiced as a business law associate at Fasken Campbell Godfrey (now Fasken Martineau LLP) focusing in the areas of insurance and securities distribution as well as general business law for small businesses.  After several years in private practice, Lynne embarked on a career as a financial services lawyer working in a variety of in-house roles and regulatory compliance roles, including: the Toronto Stock Exchange, a national securities regulatory organization which merged into IIROC and more recently as a Chief Compliance Officer and General Counsel of an IIROC registered investment dealer.

Lynne lives in Toronto with her labradoodle while her two children attend university and pop-in and out of the family home.
