Investor Protection

We strive for the highest level of transparency, due diligence, and fiduciary responsibility by putting our clients’ needs first at all times.

Assante Capital Management Ltd. is regulated by the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC). IIROC sponsors the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF) that ensures financial protection for all of our clients in the unlikely event of investment dealer insolvency. CIPF will ensure the securities, cash and other property that are held in our clients’ accounts are returned to them in accordance with CIPF’s coverage policy.  

Investment dealer insolvency doesn’t happen very often. In fact, since CIPF’s inception in 1969 there have been only 20 member insolvencies. CIPF has made payments of $36 million, net of recoveries, and no eligible customers have suffered a loss of property. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that should a situation of insolvency arise, all of our clients will be protected.
