At a time when governments are more closely monitoring changes in global GDP growth, the effects of protectionism, currency fluctuations, tax changes and sluggish business investment on the long-term financial well-being of Canadians, wealth advisors need to better understand new strategies for making tax-efficient investment recommendations to the families they work with.

The Distinguished Advisor Conference (DAC) has established its reputation as the most comprehensive and strategic educational conference available to tax and financial advisors over 14 years. The DAC will help you to accelerate all elements of your business plan and consolidate the trust of your clients as you explore the powerful changes in the financial services today.

Experts and visionaries from all sides of the financial services industries will help you refresh your vision and mission, and execute on the strategic and technical skills required to serve your clients in this time of significant change.
