IFIC Makes Submission to CSA on Title Reform

TORONTO, Sept. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC) today offered the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) its recommendations on title reform for securities registrants.

“IFIC believes that determining consistent, clear titles for registrants will improve investor understanding of and confidence in the investment funds industry,” said Paul Bourque, President & CEO, IFIC. “The objective of our proposal is to pro-actively offer the industry’s practical suggestions on how to create clarity for consumers in this challenging area.”

IFIC’s submission, which includes specific title recommendations, is grounded in three guiding principles: that titles describe the functions of the person providing the service; that the provision of advice is properly and fully reflected; and that titles are clear to the average investor.

In its submission, IFIC also encourages the CSA to work with other financial services industry regulators to harmonize titles for service providers across all financial services.
