National Instrument 31-103 Client Relationship Model Phase 2 (CRM2) is a disclosure-based regulation designed to enhance the advisor-client relationship by imposing a higher fiduciary duty on advisors. Investors are provided with greater transparency regarding the fees they pay to advisors, the services they are being charged for and investment performance reporting.
CRM2 impacts to client engagement
Advisors are required to disclose related costs to clients prior to all trades.
Trade confirms must include all transaction costs including debt security cost and deferred sales charges.
Compensation cost and performance reports must be provided to all accounts annually.

Fund Facts are used by advisors to disclose mutual fund fees. ComplianceExpress captures a record of this disclosure and generates CRM2 fee disclosure reports at any time.
