Custody of our clients’ assets
All client accounts are held in their name only at a financial institution that is completely independent from Tulett, Matthews & Associates. Such institution acts as custodian and is responsible for the account administration and safeguard of clients’ assets. Clients may choose between these two organizations for the custody of their assets:
National Bank Independent Network is a division of National Bank Financial Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of National Bank of Canada.
Credential Correspondent Partners is a division of Credential Securities Inc., which is part of Aviso Wealth, a company 50% owned by the Desjardins Group and 50% by the partnership of Canada’s five Provincial Credit Union Centrals and The CUMIS Group Ltd.
Both custodians are members of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) and the Canadian Investor Protection Fund (CIPF), which are the regulatory organizations overseeing and protecting the interests of Canadian investors.
BDO is one of the leading accounting and advisory firms in Canada and the fifth largest in the world with over 1,400 offices in more than 154 countries. BDO has been our external auditors since 1995.
