Customplan Financial Advisors Inc. Joins PEAK Financial Group

MONTREAL, Jan. 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - PEAK Financial Group is continuing to expand, strengthening its insurance of persons sector in Western Canada. One of the largest and most established MGAs in Western Canada, Customplan Financial Advisors Inc. joins forces with PEAK Insurance Services, PEAK's insurance dealer. Concluding this transaction during its 20 th anniversary year, PEAK is expanding its well-established network of more than 1,300 independent financial Advisors and registered professionals in Canada and is diversifying its revenues in a geographic sector that offers considerable opportunities. Three years after acquiring Promutuel Capital and five years after purchasing AXA Financial Services, this continued expansion reflects PEAK's ambition to grow as one of the largest fully independent financial groups throughout the entire country.

This transaction will allow PEAK Insurance Services and Customplan Financial Advisors to significantly strengthen their positions in the MGA market, particularly in Western Canada. Having already acquired Greater Montreal Financial Services in 2002, PEAK Insurance Services is a leading national insurance of persons distributor, providing access to more than 20 insurance companies. Customplan Advisors will double the size of PEAK's insurance dealer, created almost 15 years ago. With five local offices in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, PEAK will strengthen its Advisor support, network facilitation and business development services in a major way.

"After our five-year strategic alliance, we are delighted that Customplan Financial Advisors have joined us. This transaction is undeniable proof of our growth in the insurance sector and our favourable positioning," said Robert Frances, President and CEO of PEAK Financial Group. "We are proud to further deepen our relationship with the professionals and industry leading people at Customplan," he added.

"We are proud of our alliance with PEAK. PEAK's vision, commitment and values are literally identical to our own and will allow Customplan Advisors to enhance their activities in mutual funds and securities in a climate where their independence will be fully respected," said Karl Krokosinski, President and CEO of Customplan Financial Advisors.
