Investment Funds and Structured Products Branch
File No. 22-48
The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is the statutory body responsible for regulating Ontario’s capital markets in accordance with the mandate established in the provincial Securities Act and the Commodity Futures Act. The mandate of the OSC is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices, to foster fair, efficient and competitive capital markets and confidence in the capital markets, to foster capital formation, and to contribute to the stability of the financial system and the reduction of systemic risk. This mandate is performed through policy, operational, adjudication and enforcement work. The OSC also contributes to national and global securities regulation development.
The Investment Funds and Structured Products Branch oversees the regulation of investment funds and structured products that offer securities to the public in Ontario. Our function in the OSC’s mandate of providing investors protection is a vital one. We have a leadership role in developing new rules and policies within the OSC and within the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) to adapt to the changing environment in the investment fund and structured products industry. Our scope of activity includes reviewing and considering investor protection issues related to the offerings of investment products (including mutual funds, exchange traded funds, structured products, scholarship plans and labour-sponsored funds); assessing product disclosure, including prospectus and continuous disclosure filings; and considering applications for discretionary relief from Ontario securities legislation and rules.
The Business and Market Analyst position will involve playing a key role in profiling activities of the Investment Funds and Structured Products Branch by reporting on the success and impact of Branch initiatives and core work processes.
The Branch’s core processes include rule and policy consultation, prospectus and exemptive relief application reviews and issue-oriented reviews of important regulatory development. The Business and Market Analyst’s primary function will be to support the Branch’s core processes by conducting research, collecting and interpreting market data and activities, partnering with the Digital Solutions Branch, and supporting special policy projects the Branch undertakes (i.e. Risk Methodologies, and Regulatory burden-reduction initiatives).
Reporting to the Manager, Investment Funds and Structured Products, the Business and Market Analyst will be instrumental in developing, maintaining and analyzing key performance indicators to measure, and report on, Branch activities internally and for publication (i.e. quarterly and annual reports). The Business and Market Analyst will work closely with the newly created Digital Solutions branch to ensure data accessibility, define analytics needed and support reporting needs for the Branch. The two branches will work together as a “hub and spoke” model and utilize an agile framework to allow for iterative development and delivery on IFSP Branch needs.
