About the Canadian Investment Awards
The Canadian Investment Awards and Gala recognizes leading investment products and firms illustrating an enduring commitment to excellence within the Canadian financial services industry overall. In its 15th year, this is the only time in Canada, that the industry, investors and advisors come together to select top performers. In its fifteenth year, the event attracts over 600 guests annually and represents the year long work of over 30 firms, 40 senior analysts and expert jury members researching and ranking 50 categories and is supported by over 30 principal sponsors.
The unusual nature of this collaborative structure provides an unbiased and objective outcome that is completely unique to these awards and to Canada. No other analysis process, nor any other resource, provides this broad industry representation via "collaborative results" and the top performers have become a valuable annual reference guide for Canadian investors and advisors.
This is the event of the season honouring financial service excellence. For more information about the Canadian Investment Awards, and how to purchase your "early bird" tickets, please visit www.InvestmentAwards.com.
