CLHIA now says it’s listening to advisors on G19

An executive of the Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) says the industry association will continue working with advisors on “sensitive issues” brought about by a compensation disclosure guideline created for group benefit and group retirement services advisors.

Erica Hiemstra, assistant vice president, distribution at the CLHIA, told a meeting of the Canadian Group Insurance Brokers (CGIB) May 2 that the CLHIA has spent a lot of time collecting advisor input since the beginning of the year talking to advisors individually and in group meetings across the country. The CLHIA now recognizes the importance of talking with advisors and their comments, she added.
