TORONTO, Oct. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - There's no shortage of conflicting financial and economic news these days and advisors play an important role in cutting through the noise to help clients stay on track with their investment plans.
Even seasoned advisors can find themselves overwhelmed by the constant stream of financial and economic chatter. This year's Invesco Institute will help them "Invest Beyond the Headlines" to guide their clients through volatile markets.
"We believe that investors benefit from the value of professional advice. Our commitment to helping advisors is at the heart of the Invesco Institute professional development program," said Scott McLean, Senior Vice President, Head of Distribution. "This fall, we will provide industry leading investment strategies and business tactics to successfully position advisors nationwide for continued growth and success."
Presented by Invesco Canada, this year's half-day program will take place in 28 cities across Canada, kicking off on October 10 in Victoria and Moncton, wrapping up November 29 in Montreal. Highlights of this fall's Invesco Institute program include:
▪ Understanding industry trends in an uncertain environment
Advisors will learn how their peers are successfully positioning themselves in an ever-changing world and what they can do to meet today's challenges.
▪ Finding opportunities in volatility
Trimark portfolio managers will share how they find investment opportunities when uncertainty holds sway.
▪ Invesco Intactive™: Engineered for today's environment

Also, in select cities:
▪ New Word Order: New words for the new economy
Making its Canadian premiere this fall, New Word Order is the result of more than 16 years of research and 5,000 investor surveys. This ground-breaking program will reveal how the right words can help advisors build a foundation of trust with clients.
