Job losses at IGM Financial as firm seeks $65m pre-tax savings

1 min read

It hopes to save around $65 million in annualized run-rate savings on a pre-tax basis ($48m after tax). The firm will record a one-time charge of approximately $103 million pre-tax, or $76 million after-tax during the second quarter.

“We have demonstrated strong expense discipline in recent years, but these changes will further streamline our operations and structurally reduce our costs,” said James O’Sullivan, president and CEO, IGM Financial.  “We will use the resulting savings to both reinvest in our future to accelerate growth and reduce expenses. This will help ensure our businesses continue to be competitive and sustainable.”

Job losses

While no details of how many jobs may be lost in the process, the firm says it has completed a review of its organizational structure and will be “optimizing its resources and talent structure to address duplication of roles, enable partnerships across the business.”

“We will continue to invest in the growth and development of our talent to build a strong succession pipeline and continue to offer our people opportunities for fulfilling experiences and careers. This will help ensure we have the right talent, knowledge and skills to enable growth,” said Cynthia Currie, EVP and Chief HR Officer, IGM Financial.

The firm is planning to invest more in its digital transformation including retiring outdating systems and automating and modernizing its information technology infrastructure.
