Liquid Alternatives: This Changes Everything

Events 2 minutes read

October 15, 2018

8:00 am – 9:30 am
Toronto, Ontario

Please note that due to a delay in the expected publication date of the final alternative fund amendments to National Instrument 81-102, we are rescheduling our breakfast seminar to Monday, October 15, 2018 in order to provide you with a full analysis of the final rules and their anticipated impact on the Canadian investment funds landscape.

Liquid Alternatives: This Changes Everything Breakfast Seminar

Finally, Canada is catching up! For many years, mutual fund rules in the U.S. and Europe have been more flexible than those in Canada.

The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) are expected to publish the final rule amending National Instrument 81-102 – Investment Funds by the end of September.

These changes will introduce a ‘liquid alternatives’ regulatory framework in Canada, whereby mutual funds will be able to utilize certain investment strategies and invest in asset classes that have been prohibited for conventional mutual funds in the past. These ‘alternative funds’ represent significant change in the Canadian mutual fund industry.

Join McMillan’s Investment Funds and Asset Management Group for an interactive panel discussion to learn more about the impact of the new laws and details on:

  • Review of the final rule and transitional provisions
  • How mutual fund managers can adopt new investment strategies to offer alternative funds to retail investors
  • How alternative asset managers can market and grow their AUM through this new and exciting distribution channel
  • Tips and tricks on managing a platform of funds that are reporting issuers (and not just private funds)

This program qualifies for up to 1 hour and 30 minutes Substantive CPD credit in Ontario.
