Our commitment to safeguarding your wealth

Keeping your assets safe

You’ve worked hard to build your assets – and we want you to know that we’re going to work even harder at keeping them safe. We rely on corporate governance best practices and adhere to the stringent rules and regulations set by our regulatory bodies. We only invite the most experienced and knowledgeable Investment Advisors to join our firm, with each committing to a due diligence review.

Regulatory oversight and protection

Richardson GMP is a member of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), which sets high quality regulatory and investment industry standards, protects investors and strengthens market integrity while maintaining efficient and competitive capital markets. IIROC carries out its regulatory responsibilities through setting and enforcing rules regarding the proficiency, business and financial conduct of dealer firms and their registered employees and through setting and enforcing market integrity rules regarding trading activity on Canadian equity marketplaces.

Richardson GMP is also a member of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF). CIPF was created by the investment industry so that your assets, within defined limits (including cash, securities and certain other property), are protected in the case of a Member firm insolvency.

Enhanced safety with coverage from Lloyd’s of London

Richardson GMP has purchased additional securities protection, with certain underwriters at Lloyd’s of London, to complement the existing insurance provided through the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF). That means that as one of our clients, your combined general and combined retirement accounts each have coverage up to $2 million. This extra coverage* is yet one more indication of how committed we are to enhancing the safety of your assets.

* Subject to an aggregate policy limit of $30 million.
