We were honoured to learn that Kerr Financial was recently recognized as one of eight best advisors in the Montreal and Ottawa region by AdvisoryHQ News. AdvisoryHQ is an online news media providing independent research, reviews and top rankings of financial firms and products across Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. To produce this list, the ratings firm used its Top-Down Advisor Selection Methodology to conduct analysis on wealth management and financial advisory firms in the Montreal and Ottawa region as well as surrounding areas. The methodology is based on a wide array of factors, including fiduciary duty, independence, transparency, degree of service customization, history of innovation, quality of service provided, team excellence and years of experience. Firms under analysis are not made aware that they are under review until after AdvisoryHQ’s rankings are published, nor do they pay any fees.
As a family owned wealth management firm we understand that it is not every day an outside ratings firm notices and remarks on the values we know and live daily. We are therefore thrilled to share an excerpt of the qualities AdvisoryHQ recognized in their article, earning Kerr Financial its place as a top wealth management firm.
