2nd Quarter Compliance Update 2020

The presentation file for last Wednesday’s 2nd Quarter Compliance Update is attached for your reference.

A more succinct compliance package has been devised to facilitate your business submissions and below is a summary on the requirements:

  • All new business requires an Advisor Disclosure/Privacy Statement and a Reason Why Letter.
  • Life insurance business requires a Financial Needs Analysis.
  • Investment business requires a Know-Your-Client Form (valid for 2 years from date of signature) – upgraded to a fillable PDF form for your ease of use
    • Additionally, investment loan business requires an approved Leverage Loan Review Worksheet.

Also attached are the updated forms for your use; they are also available on VirtGate and will be on the Intranet shortly.  Existing forms can continue to be used until the end of July 2020.

Feel free to contact Stephen at (604) 279-0866 ext.114  should you have any question.

Carriers’ Updates

Canada Life

For Canada Life to process and accept non-face-to-face (“NF2F”) applications in good order, check out the guidelines attached CL NF2F Process Chart.

Some key points are highlighted below:

1. Verification of client ID – if the client is new, their ID must be verified and must be indicated on the Advisor’s Report “Client’s identification was verified through video conferencing.” Note if your application is for universal life, a new client must be identified using the Dual process (NPOI) method.

2. Send the NF2F form at the same time as the application – To minimize any confusion or delay with processing, always send the form at the same time the application is submitted.

3. If electronic signatures are being used, submit the electronic summary with the audit trail at the same time as the NF2F form.

4. Use one form per application – If clients want two single life policies, two NF2F forms are required.

Contact Carol Ng at Carol.Ng@CanadaLife.com or (604)377-7203, or Hinris Chan at Hinris.Chan@canadalife.com or (604)443-8247 for any questions you may have.
