Custom regulatory content for Investment Managers

An Ethidex module is a set of digital documents that organizes your regulatory requirements in a framework tailored to your business structure. Canadian requirements are presented as plain language control objectives backed up by specific citations and links to full-text sources. Modules for investment managers are updated quarterly to meet changing requirements with the assistance of Borden Ladner Gervais LLP.  International regulatory content can be managed and updated using the Ethidex background tables of our Compliance Office™ application.

Implementing internal compliance controls

"A registered firm must establish, maintain and apply policies and procedures that establish a system of controls and supervision sufficient to:

  • provide reasonable assurance that the firm and each individual acting on its behalf complies with securities legislation, and
  • manage the risks associated with its business in accordance with prudent business practices"

- NI 31-103, Part II, s. 11.1

Entities can’t assume the absence of problems means that controls and oversight are strong. Ethidex allows you to manage your company’s controls, procedures and policies to ensure and demonstrate effective risk management and compliance to the board and other stakeholders.
