Insight Gisted Report May 2012
The current issue of Insight follows two main lines of inquiry. First, we look at whether the industry’s seasonality sales and redemption patterns have changed, and if so, how and why. The research continues this year’s Insight theme of “looking under the hood” of the industry’s metrics to determine the changing drivers of growth and sales activity. In our second line of inquiry, the results of the just-completed RRSP season are reviewed through the seasonality lens, with a further look at which companies, funds and asset classes benefitted the most during the period. The first quarter of the year has traditionally been a time of opportunity for the various providers of financial services and products.
