TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Picton Mahoney Asset Management (“Picton Mahoney”) welcomes the changes brought by the Canadian Securities Administrators’ blanket relief order making available additional course options that may be completed instead of the courses required under National Instrument 81-104 Alternative Mutual Funds.
“We applaud the CSA’s announcement to expand qualification options for the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA) and other advisors looking to distribute liquid alternative mutual funds,” said David Picton, President, CEO and Portfolio Manager at Picton Mahoney. “As longtime advocates of alternative investing, we are pleased that MFDA-licensed and other advisors can offer Canadian investors the opportunity to diversify their portfolios with alternative investments. With 16 years of experience managing alternative investment solutions through all market conditions, we look forward to providing guidance, consultative sales and education to a broader investment community.”
As part of its continued leadership in the sector, Picton Mahoney was a key contributor to the IFSE Institute’s course content: Investing in Alternative Mutual Funds and Hedge Funds, which is now available to MFDA advisors. The CSA will implement the relief through blanket orders by each securities regulatory authority and anticipate codifying the relief at a later date.
