OSC to host roundtables on best interest duty

May 9, 2013

The Ontario Securities Commission will be hosting two roundtables in June to discuss issues identified in the CSA Consultation Paper 33-403, which considers the imposition of a statutory fiduciary duty on advisers and dealers to act in the best interests of clients. Our own Ed Waitzer considered such international developments in a post of February 2011. A follow up panel discussion for investors and the industry will occur in July.
