Call for candidatesAMF seeking candidates to fill two positions on investment products advisory committee

Montréal – The Autorité des marchés financiers (the “AMF”) is calling for candidates to fill two positions on the Investment Products Advisory Committee (the “Committee”).

The Committee’s core mandate is to examine and discuss issues relating to efficient frameworks for managing and distributing investment products and provide feedback and suggestions for enhancing the development and implementation of those frameworks. The investment products targeted are primarily mutual funds, including exchange-traded funds, non-redeemable investment funds and individual segregated funds.

Set up and co-ordinated by the AMF, the Committee is composed of up to 15 outside members from various related areas and professions as well as AMF representatives. Members must have extensive experience in their respective fields and a solid understanding of investment product regulation.

The AMF seeks to have a Committee composed of members representing manufacturers and distributors of the above investment products in particular, as well as investor advocates. It also wants to ensure that Committee members reflect the various business models within Québec’s investment sector.

Committee members are appointed for an initial three-year term, which may be extended in accordance with conditions to be determined by the AMF. The Committee meets three to six times a year and members are not paid for their participation.

Anyone interested in being part of the Committee, especially those with extensive experience in the creation and management of investment funds, portfolio management and alternative asset management, as well as investor advocates, should read the
call for candidates. The deadline for applications is August 3, 2018.

The Autorité des marchés financiers is the regulatory and oversight body for Québec’s financial sector.
