Protecting your assets is our top priority. We ensure your protection in two ways: through asset segregation, and by CIPF, an industry-funded protection fund.

GF Securities Canada is a member of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), therefore 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 (

GF Securities wholly owns GF Securities (Canada) and is the first Chinese securities company to establish a subsidiary in Canada.

The term “segregation” refers to the physical location in which our clients’ securities are safeguarded. Fully paid securities are kept separate from all other securities. Through sophisticated accounting methods and regular audits, we can ensure compliance with this fundamental regulation.
