Best In Wealth 2022

Here is a roundup of the award-winning organizations and professionals featured in our Special Reports

Throughout the year, our 30-strong Intelligence Unit researches a series of Special Reports – each showcasing the top-performing wealth professionals and companies across a number of important categories.  Over the past 12 months, 25,000 surveys have been sent to our readers across Canada. The culmination of all that reporting is our annual Best in Wealth digital edition.

The Best in Wealth recognizes the wealth award winners from all of our special reports in 2022, which have already attracted 1.7 million online pageviews between them.

This important list provides a definitive annual collection of those who have delivered outstanding results, introduced new initiatives, refined existing working practices and also acted as a source of inspiration to colleagues.

“This recognition celebrates our partners who have rallied around our shared vision to redefine what it means to be an independent wealth management firm with an entrepreneurial culture. Every one of our partners are in this together, collectively propelling our shared success and unstoppable momentum into the future,” says Wellington-Altus Private Wealth president Jordy Chilcott.

Also featured on the list is iA Private Wealth. “We walk the talk of independence; we are the most independent Canadian company that offers the stability and security of a parent company that has embraced independence for 130 years,” says president and CEO Stephan Bourbonnais. “Our superpower is that we truly understand independence and what that means for the advisor and ultimately their clients.”

As a global publisher, our 30-strong Intelligence Unit dedicates itself to carrying out detailed research including harnessing our wide-ranging resources to canvass industry experts and knowledgeable sources to determine who is worthy of a place on the list. It was curated and published by Wealth Professional Canada.

We also thank Women in Capital Markets and Investments & Wealth Institute for their help with our reports.

Below is the Best in Wealth. We hope you enjoy discovering all of those who we believe are shining brightest and shaping the future of the wealth industry.
