Over 80 years of meeting financial needs
In 1926, Investors Group launched its first Canadian sales operation. A separate company, Investors Syndicate Limited, was created in 1940. In 1950, Investors Group introduced its first mutual fund: Investors Mutual of Canada. The company continued to grow and expand its number and type of financial products and services. In 1957, Investors Group was one of the first companies in Canada to offer Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). Investors Group became a Canadian-owned company in 1956 when IDS sold its shares to a group of Canadian investors.
For more than 80 years, Investors Group has helped Canadians build long-term financial security. Our history illustrates how far we have come since 1926, as we continue evolving to meet the changing needs of our clients.
As the needs of our clients evolve, so do the types of products and services necessary to meet them.
In response, we expanded the range of investment opportunities we offer to clients, enhanced our mortgage and banking offerings and made substantial improvements in the mix of insurance solutions we can provide.
These expansions extend our reach as a financial services company. With a more diversified product mix, our Consultants can tailor a financial plan more closely to every client’s needs.
Our network of Consultants is the largest of its kind in the financial services industry. To ensure that our client relationships stand the test of time, it's essential that our clients be able to rely on the skills and knowledge of our Consultants to meet their financial objectives. That's why we invest heavily in professional development and continuing education.
Our men and women receive ongoing training and professional development, based on "best practices" that we have identified internally and among industry leaders worldwide. Their training ranges from tax planning, estate planning, insurance and retirement planning, investment planning to cash management - everything that will help them to guide clients to the right financial decisions.
