Ilana Singer and Ellen Roseman moderated two lively expert panel discussions at the October 6th Financial Planning Standards Council (FPSC) Vision 2020 Symposium.
Ms. Singer’s panel focused on the fiduciary duty debate and the prospect of introducing a stronger, more enforceable duty for financial planners in Canada. Ms. Roseman’s panel focused on commission-based compensation, and discussed the move in many other countries to ban or cap certain types of commissions in the financial services industry. The theme of the FPSC’s Financial Planning Week was professionalism in the financial planning industry.
