Information on conflicts of interest
In 2021, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) implemented client-focused reforms that require dealers and advisors to better align their interests with those of their clients. These reforms include a major change concerning the management of conflicts of interest and ensure clients understand their relationship with their dealer and advisors.
What is a conflict of interest?
A conflict of interest exists when two or more parties are involved in a relationship and their interests, aims or goals are not aligned. A conflict of interest arises when the interests of different persons, for example those of a client and those of the Dealer or one of its advisors, are incompatible or divergent.
A material conflict of interest is one where the conflict may be reasonably expected to influence either of the following, or both:
- The decisions of the client in the relationship; or
- The recommendations or decisions of the advisor in the relationship.
Dealers and advisors must disclose to clients any material conflicts of interest that may exist in the relationship between the dealer and/or advisor and their clients. Furthermore, material conflicts of interest must be addressed in the client's best interest.
The following summary contains information regarding certain material conflicts of interest, the nature and extent of the conflicts, their potential impacts and explains how they are mitigated.
