We are not just another MGA. We are people, but not just any people. We are a team. A team who is dedicated, committed, whose experience is un-matched in the marketplace. An MGA that invests in its advisors. An MGA that is rooted in growth, innovation, and an uncanny will to never stop.

ABOUT US

WHY US

Every decision we make is made with the advisor in mind. We do not blindly follow what the industry is doing. Every effort to consider the impact on the advisor and our relationship with the advisor is made before we proceed with any decision because we care.

We don’t focus on trying to be on par with our competitors. We focus on how we can be better and do better for the advisors associated with us. We know what the advisors mean to our business and we value and care about each and every one of them.

 

-Diana Di Renzo, Manager of Administrative Services/ Compliance Officer

 

 

PARTNERS WE WORK WITH

TESTIMONIALS

For over 15 years QFS has consistently supported me and helped me take my business to many new levels.  They have introduced me to new planning tools, new products, and encouraged me with many new opportunities.

 

Being in my 50's, with over 30 years in the business, I am grateful to be able to say I am more excited than ever about the opportunities that are just around the corner for me, and the confidence of knowing QFS will be there to support me along the way.

 

BRIAN GRIBBEN

President, Brian Gribben Insurance Planning Inc.

The strength of my practice is based on the strength of my relationships with clients and prospects, with my MGA and with suppliers. It is a chain. And it needs to be a strong chain. I am fortunate to have QFS as a powerful link in the middle of this chain. For me they have bridged the other links together beyond my expectations. QFS fosters an environment for continuous improvement in all areas of our business – not just in product knowledge but also in client management, client attraction, compliance and more. From day one the QFS team has introduced me to people and processes that has helped me help so many others. On behalf of myself and my clients, thank you QFS.

DAVID  W.

CEO, David Weinberg & Associates

If I could think of the kind of MGA that would best suit the needs of a broker like myself, it would be an MGA that is administered and lead by individuals who are themselves brokers at heart. The environment and culture at QFS reflects exactly that. The directors and executives of the company truly understand the challenges brokers face on a day-to-day basis and the way they manage and make decisions is directly as a result of that. It is clear that the primary concern, above all else, is to help brokers become great through their support, guidance and transparency.

QFS provides me with an unparalleled level of both sales and administrative support.  They have become an integral part of my team that lets me focus on what I do best – selling.  Their knowledgeable staff and caring management have allowed me to reach my true sales goals.  They truly are not your typical MGA

 ROBERTO LAMORTE

Financial Security Advisor

I have been a broker with QFS since 2011 and it was the best move of my career. Under the guidance of a management team with vision lead by Kevin Cott and Nick Simone,  they know how to stretch you as a broker. Take me out of my comfort zone to achieve my full potential.

 

I do not know of any other MGA who puts so much effort into the development of their brokers. Be it "one on one" guidance or coaching from both internal and external professionals QFS certainly goes all the way to ensure their brokers are at the top of their game.

 

QFS has ongoing education and good relationships with carriers which all benefits the brokers.

 

It is reassuring being part of a MGA that is growing and spreading their wings into all regions of Canada. Continued strength and growth to QFS and all of us brokers.
