Protecting your assets is our top priority and we assure this protection in two additional ways: through asset segregation, and by means of CIPF, an industry-funded protection fund.

GF Securities Canada is a member of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada(IIROC), all funds invested with us are covered by the Canadian Investor Protection Fund ("CIPF"), which protects the public in case of the insolvency or bankruptcy of a member firm. The CIPF guarantees your general accounts up to $1 million. Separate coverage of $1 million also applies to your combined registered retirement accounts (RSP, RIF, LIRA, LIF). For more details on the subject, please consult the Canadian Investor Protection Fund brochure, available on CIPF website (http://www.cipf.ca).

GF Securities (Canada) is wholly owned by GF Securities that is the first Chinese securities company to establish subsidiary in Canada.

The term "segregation" refers to the physical location where we safeguard securities on behalf of our clients. Fully paid securities are literally kept separate from all other securities held by the firm. Sophisticated accounting methods and regular audits by independent firms ensure compliance with this fundamental rule.
