Women: Have you thought about your legacy?

With Elke Rubach, LLB, LLM, CLU

Have you thought about your legacy?
“Legacy” is the meaning your wealth takes on when you reach the point of sharing it.
Beyond supporting family members, what kind of impact would you like to have on your community, your country or beyond?

Engaging the Female Market

With Samara Charters

Client retention is critical to the success of your business, yet there is a particular segment that you may not have on your radar – women. Many advisors overlook the unique needs of female clients, and 73% of women say they are unhappy with the financial services industry.

In this presentation you'll be introduced to an approach you can use to engage women, understand their unique financial concerns, and tailor your communications to build long-term relationships.


We welcome organizations to consider booking a table of 6 to bring their up and coming advisors to our March Women's Event - not only is there an excellent lineup of speakers, but it will also be a great way for newer advisors to see what Advocis, the oldest professional organization for advisors, has to offer. Tickets $50    Tables of 6 $250 

Better the balance.
Better the world.

The future is exciting. Let's build a gender-balanced world.
Everyone has a part to play - all the time, everywhere.

From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.

Balance drives a better working world. Let's all help create a #BalanceforBetter.


We want your Input!

As part of a project we are working on for our Women's day event we are asking female Advisors from all backgrounds, members and non-members, to please forward a photo of yourself along with a couple of sentences telling us what International Women’s Day means to you as an Advisor. The quotes and photos will be featured at our Women’s Day event, and on our website and social media platforms

Please send photos and quotes to Toronto@AdvocisChapter.ca before February 28th.  All participants will be entered into a draw to win a free pass to our Professional Development Day in October, a $125 value. An additional draw will be held for “Most Creative Entry”.
