TORONTO, June 2, 2017 /CNW/ - The Investment Funds Institute of Canada (IFIC) today released a correction to its media backgrounder issued this morning entitled "Global Trends in Financial Services Regulation".
The earlier media release noted that securities regulators opting for a ban on embedded fees represent "13% of total worldwide mutual fund assets of $39.4 trillion". The placement of the statement in the media release next to a reference to four particular countries incorrectly suggests that the figures relate only to four countries.
A revised media release is now available on our website, indicating: "In all, only 13% of total worldwide mutual fund assets of $39.4 trillion are covered, or slated to be covered, by a ban on embedded commissions."
