Strength of Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network
A national distribution network
Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network with its Quebec counterpart, SFL Partner of Desjardins Financial Security, is a national financial products and services distribution network.
All together, the network has over 50 financial centres and branches and more than 1600 independent representatives across Canada.
Independence at the core of our network
At Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network, every associate is an independent representative in partnership with the network. This means that our financial services advisors are not limited to a single line of products, and we're not tied to a specific investment management company or insurance provider. We look at our clients' individual needs and guide them in choosing the services and products that are right for them.

Forming a strategic alliance with Desjardins Insurance, part of the Desjardins Group, our network benefits from the strength of a leading Canadian financial institution. Our alliance contributes to the sustained growth of our network and allows us to rank among the top distributors in Canada’s financial services industry.
