David Chapman President, FundEX Investments
FundEX is a great partner for our business. We have a high level of trust in the management team, which has been a true pleasure to work with – particularly during the transition of our practice. The day-to-day operational support is appreciated, and we are very impressed with the fully integrated suite of digital tools, particularly e-signature, which has been critical during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Isaac Musial Partner, Wealth Advisor
I moved my practice to FundEX in 2014 and couldn’t be happier. I was looking for a firm that fostered an entrepreneurial culture, and that is exactly what I got. The management team values and respects my independence, but is always there to provide their support, whether for marketing, operations or compliance. I was initially concerned about the transition process, but it was seamless and before long I was settled in and back to doing what I do best: helping clients plan for their future and grow their wealth. An important source of confidence and peace of mind for both me and my clients is the fact that FundEX is owned by Industrial Alliance, one of Canada’s most respected names in financial services.
Stuart Kirk, CIM® Wealth Advisor, Director

Throughout my time at FundEX, David Chapman and his team have always demonstrated that they are truly working in the best interests of advisors and helping us grow.
