Popowich Karmali Advisory Group
CIBC Wood Gundy
With 24 years of experience in the industry, Karmali says he’s driven by the opportunity to make a positive impact in people’s lives by helping them improve their financial security. For Karmali and his team, the all-consuming challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic was the perfect chance to make a difference.
“Our paramount strategy was to maintain communication with clients,” Karmali says. “We became educators not only about the markets, but also about the healthcare system. We helped clients and family members complete CERB, CPP and OAS applications where necessary, and tried to reach out and engage with clients on a regular basis about more than just their money, to give them the emotional support that they may have needed.”
