NCM Investments – A Letter from the CEO.

March 26, 2020

We hope this message finds you, your family, your colleagues and their families safe and well.

Much has transpired regarding the rapidly evolving situation related to Canada’s response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) since our last update on March 16th.

Most recently, both the Ontario and Quebec provincial governments have released the list of essential workplaces that are exempt from the provincial orders to close non-essential businesses. Asset management firms are considered essential workplaces, and NCM remains open for business.

The investment in our technology infrastructure, the secure access we have in place with our external service providers, and the flexibility we have with our communications platform are allowing our team to ensure that you will continue to have the ability to contact us, via telephone, email and video calls.

Given the unique circumstances, we are extremely pleased with how well the organization is operating under the business continuity plan.  We continue to manage the NCM investment funds and share all key information with our team of wholesalers based throughout the country. As well, starting this week, we will be hosting a series of live conference calls with our Portfolio Managers to speak specifically on the mandates they oversee.  

All the calls will be recorded and made available for listening at a time best suited to your schedule.  For a complete calendar of Portfolio Manager calls, as well as dial-in information please contact your NCM regional wholesaler or send a note to

Finally, we are focused on protecting the safety of our employees, their families, our clients, and your families, while maintaining the ability to seamlessly deliver the client experience you have come to expect from us. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We are here to help.
