No. AdvisoRanx is a conduit that reflects the reviews, the ratings and the comments that individuals allocate to specific registered advisors with whom they have had a direct or firsthand professional experience, which in no way shall be construed as financial advice.
AdvisoRanx may also post, from time to time, articles, blogs and educational material published by third-party sources that are not affiliated with AdvisoRanx. This additional material should not be construed as advice, financial or otherwise, provided by AdvisoRanx, its staff, its affiliates, or its directors.
No. All views, reviews, ratings, comments, and opinions, including the publications, blogs, and educational material that are posted on AdvisoRanx' site are solely those of the original author and do not necessarily reflect the views, policy, opinion, or position of AdvisoRanx, nor any of its staff, affiliates, or directors, and should not be construed as such.
For each question, 1 star represents the poorest/lowest score and 5 stars represents the highest/strongest score. The rating for each category is the simple average of the scores allocated to the 2 questions in a category. The Average Rating is the simple average of all the scores allocated to all 10 questions by all raters.
Your comments should reflect objectively, fairly, and truthfully your direct professional experience, past or current, with specific registered advisors.
The written comments are subject to further moderation once posted. We may remove your comments after they have been posted if they use language that AdvisoRanx, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate.

Yes. You can review as many registered advisors as you wish as long as you have had a direct professional experience with such registered advisor(s). However, you may only post ONE review for each registered advisor. Posting several reviews for a registered advisor through the use of different e-mail addresses may cause some or all your reviews to be removed and some or all your accounts to be disabled from our site.
Absolutely, so long as they are of at least eighteen (18) years of age and they have also had a direct professional experience, past or current, with that registered advisor.
No. For simplification purposes, AdvisoRanx defines "registered advisor" as all financial professionals who are registered with a provincial or territorial securities regulator to provide financial and/or investment advice to individuals in Canada. However, the type of registration varies according to the regulator with which a registered advisor is registered within a specific province or territory in Canada.
The type of registration initially shown for each registered advisor is the registration in the advisor's home province or territory.
The various types of registrations as defined by the Canadian Securities Administrator are listed on the Canadian Securities Administrator website.
Depending on your financial needs, the type of registration for a registered advisor may be very important to you.
For example, the type of registration may affect the level of advice or what recommendations you receive, the financial instruments you may be able to buy from a registered advisor, the type of fees you may be required pay, whether you may be able to receive discretionary investment management services from the registered advisor, the province or territory in which the registered advisor may be permitted to serve you, and so on.
Advisors with the same type of registration may have different specializations and/or professional experiences.
For example, some registered advisors may specialize in giving investment advice, while others may have the ability to manage your investments as licensed portfolio managers. Some registered advisors may specialize in a specified range of investment strategies or financial products, while others may integrate the various aspects of your financial needs (such as financial planning, retirement planning, estate planning, tax planning, and insurance) into a single wealth management plan.
AdvisoRanx allows registered advisors to claim their profile free of charge. Some registered advisors choose to claim their profile because in doing so the registered advisors may add descriptive details to the profile such as their picture, phone number, website address as well as their degrees, professional designations, registration type, and licenses.
In order to claim a profile, the registered advisor must submit the corporate e-mail address used in all professional communications with clients. AdvisoRanx will then confirm with the registered advisor that the profile has been claimed using the corporate e-mail address submitted. Once the profile is successfully claimed, the registered advisor may reply to your comments.
No. AdvisoRanx does not verify the contents of a registered advisor’s profile. You are required to do your own independent due diligence and research before you select a registered advisor. AdvisoRanx assumes no responsibility for an individual’s choice when selecting a registered advisor.
There are many websites in Canada and around the world that consumers use to review and rate products, services and/or professionals. This site is similar. Negative reviews that are objective, fair, truthful, and based on the services of registered advisors with whom you have had a firsthand professional experience should not constitute libel; however, malicious or unsubstantiated reviews may expose you to legal repercussions. Integrity and fairness must be paramount features of your reviews, whether they are positive or negative. For more information, please consult a legal professional.
Yes. The new name that you have chosen will automatically apply to all your past and future reviews.
Most likely because your comment contained language that AdvisoRanx, in its sole discretion, deemed inappropriate. It may have been removed because AdvisoRanx noticed the inappropriateness of your comment or because someone flagged your comment, which was then reviewed and removed.
Flagging a comment does not guarantee its removal from our site. It merely brings the comment to our attention for further review. AdvisoRanx retains the sole authority and discretion to remove any comments from its site.
Only if the registered advisor has claimed the profile, as described above. The registered advisor's reply will also be subject to objectivity, fairness, and truthfulness and the reply will be moderated to ensure that it does not contain language that AdvisoRanx, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate.
No. Only the registered advisor who is subject to your review may reply to your comment. However, anyone may choose to "Like" or "Flag" a comment.
