IG Wealth Management, Charlottetown
Jobs: Financial Consultants
IG Wealth Management, formerly known as Investors Group, is one of the oldest financial services companies in Canada.
On PEI, the company has been in operation for over 50 years and has 15 consultants.
Peter Mullins says their financial planning recommendations include investment products such as mutual funds, GICs, RRSPS, TFSAs, education and disability plans, and insurance products like critical illness, disability insurance and long term care.
“We also offer lending services such as mortgages, lines of credit, credit cards, and bank accounts.
“We are looking for graduating students who are very entrepreneurial and want to grow their own business in the world of financial services. Consultants are required to earn their CFP designation within four years of starting with our company.”
CFPs are required to spend 30 to 50 hours a year to upgrade their skills. “A business degree is a great foundation, but it’s not necessarily what we look for.
“I have been in the industry for over 21 years and it’s unbelievable the amount of change I have seen. The ability to adapt to a fast-paced environment is key because new financial products come out all the time.”
