Finalists for the 2021 WP Awards revealed


April 1, 2021, Toronto – Providing financial advisors with superior service is a core part of who we are. Advocis is proud to announce our nomination for The WP Readers’ Choice Award for Service Provider of the Year at the 2021 Wealth Professional Awards. This award acknowledges the contributions of a company or individual with a proven track record of providing financial advisors & offices with the superior service and assistance needed to perform their duties.

Additionally, Advocis is proud to again sponsor The Advocis Award for Young Achiever of the Year. This award recognizes the young advisor who has displayed excellence with more than three years of experience as an advisor.

The winners will be revealed at the Wealth Professional Awards on June 2 and 3, with hundreds of the nation’s foremost wealth professionals gathering virtually to celebrate each other’s successes and efforts.

Winners are chosen through a five-stage selection process. First, Wealth Professional puts out a call and collects nominations, then the awards team does in-depth research to narrow down the list; once that is complete, finalists are selected.

All finalists are then presented to a third-party judging panel, comprised of financial industry leaders and senior representatives, who vote for winners in each category. After judges vote, scores are aggregated to produce a single winner in each category, a process which is fully verified by PwC Canada as the official ballot accountants. Finally, the winners are announced.

James Burton, Senior Editor of Wealth Professional Canada, said: “It’s been a wild year and one that has tested the advisory community. From the pandemic-induced market crash to the velocity of the rebound to helping clients who have lost loved ones to this horrible virus.

“The best in the business, of course, have navigated this ride with aplomb, not only through returns but also through client communication, which has taken on a whole new dimension these past 12 months. It’s our pleasure to recognize, honour and celebrate the year’s best-in-class at our awards event.”
