Attached is a listing of Custodial Agreements in effect as of February 28, 2023 between the New Self-Regulatory Organization of Canada (New SRO), as bare trustee on behalf of Dealer Members and various entities which are acceptable securities locations and whose products may include GIC’s and various investment funds.

In the administration of these custody agreements, the New SRO carries out due diligence to ensure that the custodial agreement is in the prescribed form and is executed by those in authority. Copies of the agreements on file are available upon request. It remains the responsibility of Dealer Members to monitor the custodian for ongoing compliance as an acceptable securities location and to carry out product due diligence and suitability assessment of investments sold to clients.
