PEAK Financial Group has formed a partnership with L.E.S Financial Services, and will now reach more than 6,000 doctors and other healthcare professionals in Canada.

L.E.S Financial Services is a Montreal-based group of advisors led by Lorne Schecter who specialize in providing living benefits to people in the healthcare sector. PEAK announced the transaction yesterday, describing it as "competitive partnership" that will significantly strengthen its position in the insurance industry. As part of the arrangement, L.E.S Financial Services' clients will be able to obtain financial advice from PEAK advisors.

"This partnership guarantees long-term continuity both for our firm and for our clients." says Schecter. "PEAK offers us the opportunity to continue doing what is most important to us – serving our clients – while broadening their opportunities with a powerful service offering. We will all benefit from the stability and soundness of this fully independent financial group. L.E.S and PEAK have a shared vision and values, including integrity and objectivity of advice, and I am confident L.E.S will benefit from PEAK Insurance Services' outstanding back-office service."
