Our last blog post talked about the important distinction between wealth advisors (qualified financial professionals) and wealth advisers (anyone claiming this title, qualified or not). Naturally, our team is comprised of highly skilled, experienced, dedicated wealth advisors who work hard for our clients and deliver personalized, holistic care. We’re proud to be advisors “with an O”.
But what other names do we fall under? Well, for one, you’ll see that our website has Scotia Wealth Management featured prominently on the main toolbar. You’ve probably seen the word ScotiaMcLeod listed in different places, and you’ve certainly heard of Scotiabank. The words Scotia Capital Inc. are even on the homepage! So what does it all mean, and how does Mailey Rogers Group fit in?
There has been a lot in the news about “wealth advisers”, and the trouble that investors have faced after placing their trust in someone who wasn’t as qualified as they believed them to be. Much has been made of the difference between a wealth “adviser” and “advisor”, and rightly so – they are very different things. An “advisor” has to meet very strict criteria, passing Canadian Securities Institute courses and earning specific financial designations. An adviser can be literally anyone.
Rest assured, Mailey Rogers Group falls neatly into the first category – wealth advisors who are highly educated and have all the appropriate financial designations. With our dedication to client service and an exceptional quality of wealth management, we can accept no less!
