Frédéric Godbout - Atwater Capital

Frédéric Godbout, CFA


Originally from Granby in the Eastern Townships, Frédéric represents the 4th generation of an entrepreneurial family to work and invest in diversified sectors of the Quebec economy.

From an early age, Frédéric was involved in various family businesses, holding positions that were as formative as they were varied. Following his university studies in 2004, Frédéric’s career path led him to work for 8 years with national and international institutions, giving him a wealth of experience in the finance and investment industry. Most notably, he worked at First National Financial Corporation, one of Canada’s largest non-bank commercial lenders. Frédéric then moved on to Ivanhoe Cambridge, a subsidiary of the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, one of the world’s largest pension funds, where he rose through the ranks of the organization and worked with some of the industry’s top professionals.

In 2012, Frédéric returned to the family fold and co-founded Atwater with his brother Alexandre to bring their complementary expertise under one umbrella and to perpetuate the development of the family business portfolio. Since he took the helm of Atwater in 2012, the company has made significant achievements. For example, in 2014, the company made the largest acquisition in multi-residential rental real estate in Montreal. Subsequently, Atwater has continued to grow with several other investments and acquisitions in diversified fields, including real estate, healthcare, construction and aeronautics.

Frédéric is known for his rigor and integrity. He enjoys working as part of a team, and is fortunate to be surrounded by an equally high-performance and solid team, making Atwater a business partner of choice. Frédéric is an entrepreneur at heart and is always on the lookout for new business opportunities.

Frédéric completed his bachelor’s degree in Finance & Economics with distinction at McGill University in 2004. He is also a CFA charterholder.
