Point of Sale (POS) disclosure for mutual funds requires the delivery of a Fund Fact document at or prior to the sale of an investment product. The POS regulation (NI 81-101) is a continuation of the shared vision of securities and insurance regulators to provide investors with more meaningful prospectus disclosure of mutual funds and segregated funds.
Key components of POS compliance
An advisor is required to discuss and disclose the specific costs of a recommendation with the client prior to every trade.
Fund Fact Disclosure
A client must receive the Fund Facts document prior to any purchase.
Reporting & Recordkeeping
Dealers and advisors need to be able to demonstrate that all relevant conversations and disclosures occurred prior to every purchase.
