Through FundEX, our independent financial advisors have access to one of the broadest choices of products and services available to serve your investment needs. Some of our major partners include:
FundEX is a national mutual fund dealer registered in all provincial jurisdictions across Canada. All mutual fund dealers must be a member of a Self-Regulated Organization (“SRO”), and as such, FundEX is a Member of the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (“MFDA”). The MFDA is the national SRO for the distribution side of the Canadian mutual fund industry and regulates the operations, standards of practice and business conduct of its Members and their representatives with a mandate to enhance investor protection and strengthen public confidence in the Canadian mutual fund industry. FundEX is also governed by the provincial securities commission in each jurisdiction in which it is registered.
In the province of Québec, FundEX is a member of the Autorité des marchés financiers (“AMF”). The AMF is the regulatory body mandated by the government of Québec to oversee the province's financial markets and provide assistance to consumers of financial products and services.
Investment Funds Institute of Canada (“IFIC”)
IFIC represents all facets of the investment funds industry, including roughly 150 mutual fund managers, dealers and professional and business services that support the investment funds industry. Its principle role is to advocate on behalf of the industry and its investors, ensuring their voices are heard by regulators and public policy makers. As a member, FundEX relies on IFIC as an information-sharing body for the industry, helping to ensure that members and their advisors have the knowledge, tools, and guidance they need to comply with changing requirements.
Federation of Mutual Fund Dealers (the “Federation”)
Since its inception in 1996, the Federation has been an association of Canadian mutual fund dealers and affiliates, whose members have been working to represent the independent mutual fund dealers. It currently represents dealer firms with over $114 billion of combined assets under administration and more than 17 thousand licensed advisors that provide financial services to over 3.5 million Canadians and their families. FundEX is proud to be a member of the Federation and actively supports and participates in its initiatives.
