ALL SERIES OF MANAGED FUTURES NOTES HAVE MATURED.
IF YOU STILL HAVE MONEY WITH TRICYCLE, PLEASE INSTRUCT US AS TO WHERE TO SEND IT.
The last of the CWB Managed Futures Notes matured on December 15, 2011. As a result, Tricycle Asset Management Corporation (“Tricycle”) no longer maintains client accounts without charge. Tricycle charges any open account an annual maintenance fee of $120.00, payable quarterly in advance as long as it is open. The first $30.00 quarterly fee was deducted on April 1, 2012, and these fees will be deducted on the first business day of every quarter thereafter.
Starting on Tuesday, July 3, 2012, Tricycle will also deduct a $125.00 liquidation fee when the account is wound up.
Open accounts will not earn any interest.
“Registered accounts” include RRSPs, RIFFs and LIRAs. If your account is a registered one, you must choose one of two options to have us send the money to you:
- You can send Tricycle a T2033 Form, instructing us to move the money to another RRSP/RIFF/LIRA of yours. You will need to get the T2033 Form prepared by an agent of the institution to which you want the money sent. They will forward the completed T2033 Form to Tricycle after you have signed it. The instructions on the Form should read, “Transfer all in cash.” If you choose this option, we will send all the money to the other RRSP/RIFF/LIRA, and you will pay no income tax as a result. This will be your only option if your account is a LIRA. A T2033 Form for a LIRA must be accompanied by a “Lock-In Agreement.”
- Alternatively, you can send Tricycle instructions to liquidate the RRSP/RRIF and send the money to you. Your signature on this instruction must be guaranteed by your bank, broker or financial planner. If you choose this option, you will pay income tax on the amount. Tricycle will have to withhold a percentage in accordance with the Regulations to the Income Tax Act, and send it to the Canada Revenue Agency as partial payment of your tax. We will then send you the net amount. Tricycle will also send a T4RSP to you and the Canada Revenue Agency by the end of February 2013 to attach to your income tax return for 2012. If you live in Quebec, we will also withhold tax for Quebec and send an RL-2 to you and Quebec Revenue.
Documents should be faxed to Tricycle at 1-416-440-7989.
If your account is still open and it is not a registered one, this means that our payment to you could not take place for some reason, such as you are no longer at the address that we have on file. Please e-mail us at email@example.com or call us at 1-416-440-7990 in order for us to resolve the issue and send you your money.
We must receive any documents by 4:00 PM Toronto time or else we will treat them as received the next business day.
