The Advisor Sentiment Index
These are some of the findings of an Ipsos Reid poll conducted between April 5 and May 22, 2013 on behalf of Sun Life Financial. For this survey, a sample of 345 Canadian financial advisors was interviewed by telephone. The survey participants represent a cross-section of the Canadian financial services industry including affiliated and independent financial advisors. Respondents were asked to share their opinions looking ahead roughly 6 months, to December 31, 2013. The Advisor Sentiment Index figure is the average score given by advisors on their outlook for capital markets.
