Marketing and Distributing your Fund in Canada


The Great White North seems a nice place, and typically it is, but if a non-Canadian fund tries to sell securities in Canada without knowing the Canadian legal framework, challenges can ensue (especially considering we have 13 securities regulatory authorities)! Join us to learn about the legal and regulatory requirements for dealing with and selling to Canadian investors. We will get into the nitty gritty including the types of exemptions that may be available along with the forms that need to be completed to make soliciting and selling as easy as possible. Depending on your circumstances, including whether your asset manager is registered in its home jurisdiction, selling in the North can be easier than you may think. Our panel will illustrate what is required as well as best practices for those looking to sell into Canada – as well as color on the investor segments and how to best approach them. This is presented with our partner: the Institute for Portfolio Alternatives.

This webinar is for non-Canadian asset managers interested in marketing their fund in Canada.
