Presented by: AIMA & CAIA

AIMA and CAIA published an updated risk rating guideline in March 2021 to better align internal retail risk ratings at investment dealer firms with the historical risk-adjusted returns of funds within strategy indices.

This expanded guideline offers suggested ratings for hedge funds, alternative mutual funds, alternative ETFs, and private credit with updated data.

Join us for this overview of AIMA & CAIA’s recommendations and methodology, as well as a practical discussion on the continued progression of risk ratings in Canadian advisor distribution channels.
