We are pleased to advise you that First Canada Capital Partners Inc. (“First Canada”) has entered into an agreement with Global Maxfin Capital Inc. (“Global Maxfin”) under which Global Maxfin will acquire the business of First Canada. The transaction joins two firms of similar culture and business lines, and we believe that this transaction will benefit you and your Investment Advisor through access to enhanced services and financial products. Our Vancouver and Calgary offices will join the Global staff at their offices in the very near future and we will endeavor to transition your accounts in a seamless manner with no change in your level of service.
Global Maxfin is an investment dealer, a registered member of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada and of the Canadian Investor Protection Fund, and has corporate offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Halifax. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Global Group of Companies, which is an independently owned, 100% Canadian group with a presence in every province across Canada. The Global Group of companies includes Global Maxfin Capital Inc. (GMCI), Global Insurance Solutions Inc., Global Education Marketing Corporation and Global Maxfin Investments Inc.
Global Maxfin and First Canada will do our utmost to ensure that service to you is uninterrupted and the transition is as seamless as possible. Your investment advisor, and the way you conduct business with us will be the same. You will contact your advisor at the same phone number and email address until we further advise you as to contact information changes.
We will work with Global Maxfin to automatically transfer your account from First Canada to Global Maxfin by January 1, 2011. Unless we receive instructions from you to the contrary, your accounts will be transferred at the close of business on December 31, 2010. Cash balances and security positions in your accounts will be automatically moved via electronic transfer.
If you do not wish to hold an account with Global Maxfin, please provide us with alternative transfer instructions before that date by contacting your investment advisor. If you are unable to make alternate arrangements by this time, we will still transfer your account to another dealer of your choice, at no charge, until January 31, 2011.
Your registered representative’s priority is to maintain the success of their relationship with you. We are excited about the merger of the two firms, and look forward to being able to continue to provide outstanding service to you from Global Maxfin Capital Inc.
