Independent Review Committee's report
In accordance with Canadian securities regulations, National Bank Investments Inc. (NBI) has set up an Independent Review Committee (IRC). The NBI Fund and NBI ETF managers submit any conflicts of interest to the IRC for review. The IRC also reviews and provides input on managers' written policies and procedures on such conflicts of interest. According to its charter, the IRC is formed of at least three members independent from the NBI Fund and NBI ETF managers and their related entities. At least once a year, the IRC prepares a report on its activities for unitholders.
