Reminder: Deferred Sales Charge (DSC) option closing soon

April 27, 2023

For guaranteed on-time processing, transactions must be received by May 12, 4pm (ET).

As previously announced, in line with regulatory requirements, we will no longer offer the Deferred Sales Charge (DSC) option for segregated fund deposits from May 26, 2023, 4pm (ET).

Now is the time to start using other sales charge options to ease the transition.    Check out the FAQ now


After May 26, 4pm (ET), all automatic deposit instructions for either pre-authorized debit (PAD) or automatic investment term (AIT), which include funds with the DSC option, will be automatically changed to Front-End Load (FEL) 0%. 


The most frequently asked question is…

Can I specify an alternative sales charge option for my client’s PAD or AIT if I believe it would be appropriate for them?


Yes. You and your client may judge that either charge back or the F-Series would be preferable to FEL 0% for future automatic deposits. If this is the case, submit a change request using form F51-153A-1, duly completed and signed, by May 12, 2023, 4pm (ET). 

We remind you that your client’s consent is mandatory.
