IFIC Announces Board Appointments (October 31, 2014)

October 31, 2014

Toronto, ON – October 31, 2014 – The Investment Funds Institute of Canada is pleased to announce its board members and executive for the 2014-15 year.

Brian Peters (president & CEO, MD Physician Services Inc.) continues as chair. John Adams (CEO, PFSL Investments Ltd.) is elected first vice-chair and Sian Burgess (senior vice president, fund oversight, Fidelity Investments) is elected second vice-chair.

“This is an exciting time to be at the helm of our rapidly changing industry,” Peters said. “We are entering a new era of investor information, with the implementation of CRM2 over the next few years. CRM, combined with Fund Facts, is transforming Canadian investors’ access to information about the investment fund products they own.”

Ten directors whose terms were expiring were elected to serve for an additional three-year term and three ex officio directors were reappointed for a one-year term, in accordance with IFIC’s by-laws. The remaining 13 directors are continuing to serve out their terms.

“All of IFIC’s directors have played an exemplary role working with our regulators toward our common goal of a competitive and fairly regulated marketplace that enables Canadians to achieve their financial goals,” Peters noted. “We have an outstanding team that is committed to leading the industry to embrace not only the letter, but also the spirit of the new rules.”
