Ranking of Canada’s Top Wealth Advisors

The ranking of Canada’s Top Wealth Advisors is based on several factors, including client retention, industry experience, and compliance records. It also incorporates quantitative criteria, such as the assets under management and revenue generated for the firms. These rankings are intended to help investors find the right financial advisor for their needs. However, the rankings do not guarantee future performance and are not representative of individual client experiences.

Resources Investment Advisors

Some large Canadian investment advisory firms have offices in the U.S., but many cannot work directly with clients in the U.S.; some, however, are affiliated with Canadian firms and are subject to U.S. regulatory licensing. Nevertheless, the vast majority of advisors cannot provide U.S. clients with advice and service.

The qualifications and education of Canadian investment advisors must meet certain criteria, which vary depending on the SRO and the regulatory body. Post-licensure courses can be a good way to further develop investment advisor skills. The Canadian Securities Institute offers examinations at its exam centres across Canada. The exams must be passed within 36 months after applying for securities registration. URL

According to the survey, the majority of Canadian investment advisors anticipate positive equity returns over the next three months. More than half of them are bullish on Canadian equities, up from 47% in Q3 2011. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq indexes also posted positive returns, boosting their bullish sentiment by seven percentage points.
