Paul Bourque in Conversation with Tom Clark
June 15, 2017
Canadians purchase more mutual funds per capita than any other country in the OECD and are among the world’s highest users of financial advice. This uniquely Canadian success story – the result of public policy and competitive market forces – has made access to advice and investment opportunities available to even the most modest investors. This easy access to investments and advice has translated into better financial security and confidence for those who use advisors versus those who don’t. But there are storm clouds on the horizon as policy makers and regulators consider bringing in transformational changes that may make financial advice unaffordable or worse – unavailable, for many modest investors.
Join veteran television journalist and chairman of Global Public Affairs Tom Clark in conversation with Paul C. Bourque, Q.C., president and CEO of The Investment Funds Institute of Canada, as they explore why Canadian policy makers are thinking about travelling a road not taken by the majority of global regulators and how the proposed changes would alter the landscape for retirement saving here at home.
