Calgary-based financial advisor named as Canada’s top financial advisor

Popowich Karmali Advisory Group’s Faisal Karmali has ranked first in this year’s Wealth Professional Canada Top 50 Advisors list

Online PR News – 13-February-2020 – Toronto, ON – Calgary-based financial advisor Faisal Karmali has ranked first in a prestigious list of the industry’s best advisors.

Popowich Karmali Advisory Group’s Faisal Karmali has been included in Wealth Professional Canada magazine’s annual Top 50 Advisors report, spotlighting 50 of the best advisors working in the Canadian wealth management industry today.

Faisal Karmali moved up three spots this year to claim the title of top advisor. “This is an honour for sure,” he says. “But it’s not just me – this is an honour for the entire team and what our group does to help our clients every day.” Karmali, who has been in the industry for 22 years, says he has always been interested in “not just the money, but seeing what that money can do for people and how the right strategy can change lives.” For the coming year, Karmali’s goals are to continue growing his practice and his media presence. Along with partner Dave Popowich, he shares his knowledge on his weekly radio show, More Than Money, and makes regular appearances in various media outlets. A retirement planning specialist, Karmali has crafted an approach he calls asset dedication, which allocates funds into four buckets: income, growth, health and legacy. The results of this strategy are his greatest reward. “My proudest professional moments come when I see clients succeeding in their retirements and knowing that our team was part of getting them to the lifestyle they wanted,” he says.

“In total, this year’s Top 50 Advisors are managing more than $16 billion worth of assets, improving on last year’s total by close to $6 billion,” says the Wealth Professional team. “Once again, this year’s list contains advisors from across the country, representing seven different provinces; British Columbia narrowly surpassed Ontario for the first time this year with the most advisors on the list (17 versus 15). The years of experience amassed by this year’s Top 50 Advisors ranges from five to 37, highlighting both the current strength and the bright future of wealth management in Canada.”
