Investor Advisory Panel
Welcome to the homepage for the Ontario Securities Commission’s Investor Advisory Panel. Formed in August 2010, the Panel is an initiative by the OSC to enable investor concerns and voices to be represented in its rule and policy making process. Our mandate centers upon our written submissions to the OSC that we will provide regarding various regulatory initiatives including proposed rules and policy statements.
We are committed to functioning independently from the Commission and we continue to discharge our responsibilities with this objective in mind. In addition, we are committed to making our process transparent, which we accomplish by posting the agendas and minutes from each of our meetings and posting information notices from time to time to inform the investor community of the issues that we are considering and to request input from you.
The Panel recently added new members Connie Craddock, Alan Goldhar, Ken Kivenko and Cary List. Bios of the seven current panel members are posted. We would also like to thank our former members Lincoln Caylor, Steve Garmaise and Michael Wissel for their contribution to the Panel, and a special thank you to outgoing Chair Anita Anand for all of her efforts in guiding the Panel through its first two years.
Investor outreach is a key facet of our mandate. We have convened expert panels and four retail investor focus groups, consulting with retail investors, investor advocacy groups, legal experts, and securities regulators to enhance our understanding of investor interests and how these interest can be better served from policy perspective.
We are particularly pleased with our deliberative research project which we conducted jointly with the Investor Education Fund with support from the OSC. Over 2000 investors from across Ontario participated in the study from October to December 2012. The final report is available on the web-site.
We greatly appreciate hearing investors’ viewpoints and thank you for your continued participation and support.
Paul Bates, Chair, Investor Advisory Panel
