Course Description

This course both explains the meaning of compliance and provides instructions on how compliant practices can be implemented by life agents, financial planners, and their companies. It is written by J-P (Jean-Pierre) Bernier formerly of the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA), the trade association whose members account for 99% of the life and health insurance in force in Canada.

J-P Bernier devoted over 25 years dealing with policy development and financial reforms at the international, national and provincial levels. He has a unique perspective on the importance of creating a foundation of compliance in which doing the right thing and acting ethically are intertwined. J-P knows that a compliant business is a successful business because the elements of compliance are at the root of good business practices.

In this course, J-P reviews the fundamentals of compliance and gives practical instruction for sole practitioners or larger companies on how to implement these fundamentals. He does not take this opportunity to lecture on wrongdoings and their consequences, but rather encourages the agent/advisor to follow practices that are going to be good for business! The agent/advisor gets both the benefit of “why-to” and “how-to” in logical, easy-to-follow instructions and advice.

Sound Business Practices for Life Agents to Stay Compliant provides the life agent and financial advisor with a checklist of practices and protocols. They will arm him or her with a set of guiding principles that will form the basis for greater success and a reputation of excellence.
