The law requires public companies and investment funds to prepare various disclosure documents. These documents provide key information to investors about the company or fund, and the securities they issue.
Securities regulators have requirements for when and how information must be disclosed. This is to help provide investors with timely and accurate information to make informed investment decisions. This also gives investors a standard to compare one company to another.
Most, but not all, disclosure documents must be filed with securities regulators. Some are posted on the fund’s website or sent to investors free of charge upon request.
