Stay away

A management heavy model that pays 1/2 the industry average. A very small investment and insurance offering when the industry is moving the opposite.

An easy way to lose money

They say they’ll give you clients when recruiting you - but when you start, they pester you to recruit all your friends and family as clients . . . you’re on your own.The only way to succeed is to try and stick with it for five years - then buy someone else’s clients.

Points positifs

Free training

Points négatifs

You spend more money than you earn

Bring assets and it will be brilliant

No arguing that if you have a good book of clients this is a great place to be. If I were at a bank, I would look seriously at moving my book to this firm so you can do the full job for your client. Very professional, good software and excellent specialist support. If you believe in holistic financial planning, this is probably one of the best firms in Canada.Managers, at a local level anyway, are generally appalling. They will make huge promises that bear no resemblance to the reality when you are in the door.

Points positifs

systems, specialists, capabilities of the firm

Points négatifs

management is appalling

Points positifs

High commission when you start

Points négatifs

Lots of office fees ending up by you owe money to IG

Excellent Career and Competitive company

I have been with IG now for over 15 years and have developed a fantastic client base. I work hard and have been rewarded by taking care of my clients. The compensation system is very fair and competitive. The products are very highly rated and they have negotiable fees. IG has become a very powerful company in the past years and have fantastic planning outcomes for clients. This has been an amazing career for me and my family.

Horrible company to work for.

IG ( Investors Group ) care only about trying to bring in potentially new clients money and/or funds not about their consultants/associates or even sometimes what’s best for their clients.

Older candidates have no chance.

They charge consultants way too much overhead. Very difficult for new consultants to get ahead. Older candidates have zero chance of being successful. Too late getting in the game.

If you are a people person, this could be the perfect job for you!

If you are really likeable!!! This appears to be the most important part of the job. Additionally, you have to be very computer savvy, investment smart and mathematically astute. There is great support by the company. It helps a lot if you know a lot of really rich people who will give you their money!

Good company

The job isnt for just anyone. You have to work hard. Not really for people just starting out. Excellent training and oppurtunity to go as far as you can take yourself. Comission, expected to get your own clients

Good for people whi have support

It was hard for a new comer to Canada to get business as it is your own business, You have to develop the business and being from another country it was hard to get Canadians to believe and trust you. More over it was a 100% commission job so one had to have a good backup for at least 5 years to survive and get settled,

Points positifs

Great Learning

Points négatifs

No base salary just commissions

Risky Venture but Can be Rewarding

I enjoyed the the Work I did at IG, and made some meaningful Friendships with some awesome co-workers. The Planning work we did was impactful and rewarding but the Compensations structure made it difficult to succeed as a young unestablished Advisor. Having a Strong warm market was vital for success as there is no Corporate support for lead generation. All clients or prospects had to be found on your own or purchased from Retiring Consultants. The reward may be worth the risk as Established consultants can have very successful careers and make excellent money if their book grows large enough $50 Million book is approx. 200k/yr revenue. Can be an Excellent Career option depending on your situation. Great place to work if you are moving from another institution and already have an established book of clients that you could move over. but Wouldn't recommend for a recent graduate with a weak warm market that would only make a tough uphill battle much steeper.

Points positifs

High Commission Rates for Newcomers, make your own hours, good planning software, strong training

Points négatifs

minimal branch support, cover your own expenses

Things are not great....

I would not recommend working at IG Wealth Management to anyone. You have to work nearly 60 hours a week to even be competitive, and by competitive I mean to earn $40k a year. You are far better off at a Company who pays your expenses for you as opposed to hanging the carrot of "Flexible Hours", "Unlimited Pay" and "Owning your own business". In reality the demands of the job are so high that there is very little flexibility if you want to succeed (or even pay your mortgage). The one element I would give them is that their training was in-depth and on going, and that does help you become a more experienced Financial Consultant over time. Another major downfall, however is that IG was unwilling to pay for any of your training or professional development. The monthly expenses to operate your business run in the range of $600-$800/month when you realize that you have to pay for Software, your computer, your office space and any admin that you may require. The management was fairly inept. Their qualifications were far less than many of the people reporting to them. They were promoted based on sales figures more so than true leadership ability. The workplace culture is very much one of everyone being in it for themselves. There is a lack mentality where every employee feels that another colleague's success is taking something away from them personally. I do not recommend working here to anyone.

Points positifs

Quality Training Program

Points négatifs

Poor Management and Culture; Pay is low; Expenses are high; "Flexibility" is a mirage.

Difficult to survive!

Consider working in this company only if you have a strong net work that you can rely on. Otherwise you are on your own and you must be able to market yourself and sell the products. The company will not provide you with any leads or contacts, your monthly expenses are high and you need accounting/finance back ground to understand the products and services.
