  CHOU ASSOCIATES MANAGEMENT INC.
 
Purchase & Redemption

 

 

 

Are Chou Funds available for purchase across Canada?

Chou Funds can be purchased by all investors, including accredited investors, through dealers and brokers across Canada.


How to purchase Chou Funds directly?

Due to our limited market dealer registration, you must be an accredited investor in order to purchase Series A units from us directly. For most investors, criteria points (m) and (n) apply.


What is the minimum investment?

The minimum initial investment for any individual Fund is $5,000; the minimum for subsequent investment in any individual Fund is $500. We also offer PAC (Pre Authorized Chequing) for $500 per month.


Is there an early redemption fee?

We have a redemption fee of 2% if unit holders redeem their units in less than 12 months. None of this fee goes to the Fund Manager. It is put back into the Fund for the benefit of the remaining unit holders. We hope this fee is enough to dissuade short-term investors from jumping in and out of the Fund to chase short-term performance.


How can I give my instruction to switch or redeem my mutual funds?

For our direct investors, we require faxed or mailed transaction instructions because of signature verification. Our mailing address:

110 Sheppard Ave. East,
Suite 301, Box 18,
Toronto, ON M2N 6Y8,
Canada

Our fax number is: 416-214-1733

For clients who purchased through a broker or dealer, please contact your broker or dealer to place the order on your behalf.


What is the cut off time for requesting transactions in my account?

Our Funds are valued every business day. For our direct investors, transaction requests received, in good order, before 4:00 pm Toronto time will be processed as of that trade date. If they are received after 4:00 pm, or are not in good order, they will be processed on the next valuation date, or as of the next valuation date that the request is in good order. (In the event that a certain business day is a holiday or weekend, the Funds will be valued on the next available business day; the same 4:00 pm time parameters would apply) For our clients who purchased through a broker or dealer, please contact them directly for the deadline which may vary from dealer to dealer.
