HIGH PERFORMANCE CLIMATE
The success of iAS is the result of a culture where we seek to provide quality results exceeding market standards. Achieving these objectives requires energy and perseverance, but the resulting excellence and efficiency are recognized.
At iAS, we are constantly looking for new ways to innovate and increase efficiency. We encourage our Advisors to take charge of their own training and professional development to become a model that inspires others.
RESPECT FOR Advisors and Employees
To create an environment ensuring respectful relationships, we believe it is important to clearly articulate expectations, to seek to understand before being understood and to treat advisors and colleagues as we would like to be treated ourselves.
The basis of our success is to ensure that client needs are promptly met with courtesy and efficiency. We continually strive to differentiate ourselves with our distributors by maintaining close relationships with them and offering them a service that reflects our standards of excellence.
Being part of a dynamic and ambitious team
With a support team consisting of a little more than fifty employees and about 250 independent Investment Advisors, interaction between iAS colleagues is simple and easy. You will quickly find the employee able to answer your questions directly, without intermediaries. Communication is natural and gives you the opportunity to get to know the people with whom you work.
