Our key qualities

Our business model and organization structure are unique within the industry. We succeed only when our clients do, and we pride ourselves on being:

1

INDEPENDENT

We are privately owned, independent, and free from conflicts of interest in the services that we provide. Fund administration is our sole focus, meaning that we can fully devote our resources and expertise to clients and cannot be steered off course.

2

INDUSTRY LEADERS

Our executive team has a combined 150 years of industry experience in senior leadership positions across the Canadian financial services industry. We anticipate our clients' needs proactively, adapt to changes in the market and regulatory environments, and, through our participation in AIMA Canada, PMAC, PCMA, the Fundserv Standards Steering Committee and other industry events, influence and drive development in financial services. With SGGG Fund Services Inc. as your administrator, you have a partner at the forefront of the industry.

TECHNOLOGY DRIVEN

We recognize that adaptive technological solutions are needed to maintain our competitive edge. DIAMOND, our industry-leading unitholder recordkeeping and fund valuation system, is robust, flexible, scalable, Fundserv-integrated, and can handle any volume of activity. Our development team can provide custom solutions for any reporting or product structuring needs, and is committed to the ongoing enhancement of the platform. We place the utmost importance on protecting client data, and our servers, technology, and information are safe and secure with multiple redundancies.

4

CLIENT-FOCUSED

We believe that fostering long-term, close relationships with clients lead to success all around. Our clients have direct access to both our executive and to the team responsible for day-to-day operation of the fund, meaning they get the answers they need when they need them. Our ability to sustain low employee turnover has created stable, consistent relationships across our service teams. Through effective communication, we actively engage our clients to provide feedback and guidance so that we’re focused on their true needs.

5

TRANSPARENT

Our reputation for integrity is built upon a commitment to exceed expectations of accountability within the industry, and we have gained the trust of clients and investors. Each year we voluntarily engage PwC to perform an ISAE 3402 audit of our controls and have never been noted for exception. Producing this report can reduce the time needed on fund audits, which translates into cost savings and efficiencies for our clients. We are also committed to the ongoing training, development, and review of our staff to ensure that procedures are not only followed, but understood.
