We provide outsourced and independent guidance and support to stay up to date and in compliance with legislation, but the value we provide is peace of mind.
Our service offering was born from a legislative mandate to ensure independent and impartial review of investment and mutual funds, but we came to understand that the services are equally applicable to provide corporations and charities/not-for-profit organizations, that have equal if not greater demand for them.
To Investment funds and their managers we ensure that you are managing your conflicts, that you are operating within your policies to avoid the scrutiny of the OSC and other prime regulatory bodies. As well as, offering required IRC educational seminars.
To directors of companies we deliver the confidence that their board requirements are in-line with best practices and that policies and procedures are up to date and relevant to the operation of the company.
And to charities and not-for-profits we help train and guide their boards to ensure they are operating to the standard and expectations of their constituents and the applicable Corporations Act.
Explore all of our services to see if you can benefit from the peace of mind that IR provides.
Basis of Our Practice
Independent Review (“IR”) operates within provincial regulations. Publicly traded investment funds are required to operate within applicable securities laws and specifically the National Instrument 81-107. IR’s services ensure regulatory best practice for these clients’ operations.
Non-publicly traded investment funds do not have to adhere to NI 81-107; however, the funds may seek relief under an Exemptive Relief Order.
Non-publicly traded investment funds do not have to adhere to NI 81-107; however, the funds may seek relief under an Exemptive Relief Order. These orders pertain to each fund differently depending on the structure of the relevant transaction and on the business of the fund. IR can provide services required by the Securities Commission to ensure independent review committees meet certain policies and procedures. IR can create a personalized tailored service for a fund that meets specific requirements. For the fund, IR can create, manage and organize these committees for the manager.
