The NEI Investments Award for Advisor of the Year – Responsible Investments

“This award is very important to Michael … He is an advocate for socially responsible investing” – Jennifer Schafer, National Bank Financial


RESPONSIBLE INVESTING has become a huge area within wealth management. Picking up the trophy for Advisor of the Year – Responsible Investments was Michael Silicz of the Silicz Birdsall Advisory Group at National Bank Financial.


Jennifer Schafer, vice-president and regional manager for the Prairies and Atlantic Canada at National Bank Financial, accepted the award on his behalf. “This award is very important to Michael,” Schafer said. “He is an advocate for socially responsible investing, and certainly there are a lot of great people nominated in the category, so he is honoured to accept the award tonight.”


“Responsible investing is a category of investing that is growing phenomenally,” added David Rutherford, vice-president of ESG services at award sponsor NEI Investments. “It’s appealing to a wider and more diverse range of investors than other categories. We believe it is the future of investing and that pretty much everybody will be involved in RI in some way, just as they are now responsible consumers across the board.”
