Investors are invited to use this Directory to locate qualified financial advisors who have attained the FCSI®.
When you hire an accredited CSI financial professional, you’re hiring an expert who has been trained by Canada’s most trusted and respected financial services education provider. Since it was established in 1970 as the Canadian Securities Institute, over three-quarters of a million financial professionals have chosen CSI for their career training and development.
CSI has a responsibility to oversee the individuals who have been granted the FCSI® designation. This oversight is carried out in the best interest of the public and the holders of the FCSI® designation.
All FCSI® holders have attested to abide by the FCSI® Code of Ethics. Adherence to the Code and this Ethical Misconduct Process is mandatory. A breach of the Code of Ethics can result in disciplinary action.
Allegations of violation of the FCSI® Code of Ethics are dealt with by the Designation Ethics Committee according to the CSI Ethical Misconduct Process. If the Committee determines a violation occurred, a disciplinary sanction is recommended.
Before filing a formal complaint with CSI, we strongly recommend trying to resolve the issue by speaking directly with the FCSI® in question. Those who cannot come to a resolution are encouraged to send the complaint to CSI. Please do not send financial documents without removing any confidential or private information.
