The Federation is putting on a seminar on Liquid Alternatives for Federation members in conjunction with CAASA (Canadian Association of Alternative Strategies and Assets) on September 11, 2019 at 3:00pm to coincide with our next meeting. Please schedule the time to attend this valuable session!

Since January this year, IIROC dealers are able to distribute Alternative strategy funds to their ‘true retail’ client. This panel will give Mutual Fund Dealers an overview of the rules, how they are being implemented in the IIROC channel, the use of risk ratings, and where alternative strategies might fit in client portfolios.

The long-awaited (since March 2013) modernization of National Instrument 81-102 in January this year allowed dealers to distribute Alternative strategy funds to their non-accredited clients. Please see RSVP/registration details below.
