Quadrus Investment Services Ltd. Reaches an Agreement with the Ontario Securities Commission to Pay $8 Million to Clients After Discovering they Paid Excess Fees on its Investments
Nov 11 15
Quadrus Investment Services Ltd. has reached an agreement with the Ontario Securities Commission to pay $8 million to clients after discovering they paid excess fees on their investments. The company voluntarily reported to the OSC in February that some clients had invested in mutual funds without being told they qualified for lower-cost funds because of the size of their holdings. The company said the problem came to light during an internal review launched after the company learned last November that three subsidiaries of Toronto-Dominion Bank had reached a similar settlement with the OSC. Quadrus reached its settlement agreement under the OSC's new program allowing no-contest settlements without admitting guilt. The OSC alleged there were inadequacies in Quadrus's systems of controls and supervision, and said the fund company 'failed to establish, maintain and apply' procedures that would have detected the fee problems at an early stage. However, the OSC said its staff found no evidence of dishonest conduct by Quadrus, and said the fund self-reported the issue to the OSC and provided 'prompt, detailed and candid cooperation' to OSC staff. The fund also volunteered to pay compensation to clients and has hired an independent third party to validate the process it is using to calculate the amount owed to clients. Quadrus has also agreed to use outside firms to help find former clients if there are any it cannot locate. The compensation includes payments for foregone profits over the period at a rate of 5% annually. The company will also voluntarily pay $250,000 to the OSC for investor protection and a further $20,000 to cover OSC costs.
