TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - September is back-to-school season for more than just students. Financial advisors nationwide also have the opportunity to hone their professional knowledge as Invesco Canada kicks off its fall road-show season.
"Invesco understands the critical role advisors play in helping Canadians achieve their financial goals," says Scott McLean, Head of Distribution, Invesco Canada. "The financial services industry is undergoing revolutionary change, and advisors need to stay on top of new regulations and shifting market conditions."
The centrepiece of this fall's schedule is Invesco Institute, which has provided continuing education to Canadian advisors for 16 years. This year's event will be held across the country beginning in October.
Invesco Canada has been leading the industry with nationwide advisor education on matters relating to the Client Relationship Model, phase II (CRM II). As part of this commitment, Invesco will present The Language of Fees: Finding opportunity in CRM II at its fall road shows.
This exclusive program from Invesco Consulting is based on new and leading research with Canadian investors, and focuses on how advisors communicate with clients in the era of fee transparency.
Also on the program, advisors can look forward to an update on CRM II, and sessions on asset allocation, tax and estate planning and much more.
Invesco Institute will be complemented by more targeted events in Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.
Financial advisors wishing to attend one of the events are encouraged to contact their Invesco Canada Sales representative or call 1.800.874.6275.
