People Who Care

At Investors Group, corporate culture means more than just serving clients – we’re caring for our communities, too.

Community Comes Together

As terrible as last summer’s Alberta floods were, the disaster did bring communities closer than ever. Thousands of people helped out their fellow neighbours including Investors Group’s Calgary Centre and Calgary Bow River offices.

On June 26, more than 15 Consultants and their families descended on a Calgary suburb to help demolish basements, remove drywall, take out damaged belongings and shovel mud and sludge out of people’s homes. It was a moving experience for everyone involved.

“The entire experience made our Investors Group advisors extremely proud to be Calgarians,” said Lindsay Bean, an Executive Assistant at Investors Group.

Walk for Research

Mark your calendars! On June 21, Investors Group’s Alberta and Northwest Territories offices will once again participate in the Investors Group Memory Walk, a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s research.

Last year, the company’s Red Deer office raised a whopping $6,500 – out of the $36,000 total – for the Red Deer Memory Walk. It was their eighth year at the event. Provincially, the walk raised more than $220,000 for research and support programs in Alberta.

Other provinces do similar walks too, so ask your advisor when and where your local walk is talking place.

Advisors Donate During Conference

Every year, nearly 2,000 Investors Group advisors get together for our annual APEX Conference, where they learn about new financial planning strategies, among other things. As with most Investors Group gatherings, though, a big part of the September 22 to 24 event involved giving back to the local community.

This year, the company chose to help Youth Without Shelter, a Toronto-based emergency shelter for 16-to 24-year-olds. Advisors rounded up toothpaste, toothbrushes, face cloths, shaving cream and many, many more hygiene products to give to the shelter. Investors Group also donated 25 mattresses and 50 pillows.

It took four days for the shelter to sort through everything that was donated, said Mike Burnett, a volunteer and education facilitator at Youth Without Shelter. “I wanted to thank you for everything you have done for our youth,” he said.
