Making a Complaint

As an order-execution only dealer, NBF Inc., through its NBIN division, offers access to a broad range of investment services in addition to our core custodial services. It is therefore important to us to ensure that you feel comfortable contacting us whenever you have a question or comment concerning any of these services. However, if your account is managed on a discretionary basis by a registered Portfolio Manager, the responsibility for suitability of investments rests with them, and not with NBIN. Therefore, in such cases, you must contact your Portfolio Manager with respect to any complaint about unsuitable investments or the financial performance of your account.

Of course we welcome feedback about all of your experiences concerning your relationship with us, but should you have an unfavourable experience, we value the opportunity to improve our services offered. Your business and on-going relationship with NBIN are very important to us and the satisfaction of our clientele is very high on our list of priorities.

Please feel free to contact us via telephone or mail with your questions or comments. We invite you to speak to NBIN Compliance or to submit the details of your complaint in writing at the following address:

NBIN Compliance Department
The Exchange Tower, 130 King Street West
Suite 3000, PO Box 21 Toronto, ON M5X 1J9
