    I have been working at IG Wealth Management full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have worked for IG for over 20 years, but I have never seen a company and the consultants pivot so quickly and adapt in our new world. Fortunately, IG was already ahead of the technology and digital adaptation so while it isn’t business as usual, it is still impressively busy. Clients are being well supported through this challenging time and the Certified Financial Planners have worked harder than they ever have before to make sure the clients are looked after. So impressive!

    Cons

    It will always require an entrepreneurial growth attitude to be successful in this industry. This is not a 9-5 job but a career.

    I have been working at IG Wealth Management full-time

    Pros

    Excellent training program. Ability to earn above average compensation, but still structured to encourage a focus on the client's financial wellbeing. IG is undergoing an impressive transformation that allows it to be even more competitive. The investment sub-advisor model allows for the selection of top performing fund management teams. Seeing some great investment on technology. Flexibility to tailor the work/lifestyle balance.

    Cons

    Not for the faint of heart. Entrepreneurial skills are essential to the success of the advisor. This isn't the right place for someone who thinks they can just get by. The expectations in regards to keeping abreast of financial planning issues and product knowledge is relentless. The culture is difficult for those who aren't geared for continuous improvement and prepared to keep up with the times.

    Pros

    Income potential, potential for growth, succession planning opportunities, supportive environment. Don't believe what you hear about IG. They have completely reinvented themselves in the last few years. Focus on client is evident. Ahead of the curve on fees, investment models and support.

    Cons

    Some smaller practices get left behind in terms of support. Transitioning from legacy platform is tiring.
