A message from our CEO: Ringing in a new (fiscal) year

With the possible TMX-Maple merger, the evolving regulatory environment and the ongoing need for exceptional client service, the backdrop is set to make 2012 a year to remember.


The 2012 watch list

No investor can keep track of all of the corporate, political and economic news that could pop up and affect portfolios.  We therefore present our short list of the indicators most worth watching for the coming year.


Managing securities lending in volatile markets

Asking the right questions of your lending agent will ensure you are well-positioned to keep your clients and your internal stakeholders informed about your lending program.


Manage your cash with maximum convenience through Workbench

The Workbench Instruction Processing feature can save time and streamline workflows, particularly when arranging cash transfers, deposits and withdrawals.  Workbench Instruction Processing enables an easier entry process and a more convenient authorization process, while maximizing control and mitigating risks. 


Q&A with Kelly Hastings, vice president and chief risk officer

CIBC Mellon’s new chief risk officer discusses the role of risk management, the company’s risk culture, and how her group helps both internal and external stakeholders make informed decisions about balancing risk.


Changes to CICA Handbook – Accounting, Part IV Section 4600 impacting pension plans

The Accounting Standards Board of Canada has advised pension plans that it will refer to International Financial Reporting Standard 13 for guidance on fair value regarding financial and non-financial investment assets and liabilities.
