Pass the IFIC or IFC exam in the smart way!
What is the IFIC Certification?
This is a requirement to work in the banking sector in Canada. Once you pass the exam, you are eligible to be registered as a Mutual Fund Representative in a bank. You can advise clients on how to invest their money by recommending suitable mutual funds.
Can I work from my home after passing the IFIC exam after getting hired?
Yes, some companies are providing online client appointments for investment advice. So it is possible to work from home.
Can I work in the back office after completing the IFIC?
If you don’t like sales or want to work in mutual fund and investment processing back-office, it is possible, the pay rate is $17-$23/hr
What’s the pay rate for client-facing jobs with an IFIC certification?
In Canada, it could be around $25 to $30/hr. So on the low end, it could be $50,000 annually before taxes and deductions.
