We hope your summer was enjoyable and that you were able to glimpse of a little more normalcy compared to last summer.
A very recent article from Rob Carrick in the Globe & Mail is attached, it highlights several Big Banks decision to prevent most of their investment advisors from offering any mutual funds EXCEPT THEIR OWN ‘proprietary funds’. Thus offering much less choice for clients. It also means less training and expense for the banks.
We believe that having more choice is a good thing for our clients. As independent investment and insurance advisors, we work for YOU and no one else. And, yes, as a small business we also need to be profitable to continue to offer our services. But, we actively support and embrace the idea of having more options for our clients, not less.. You’re worth it.
