INVESTMENT ADVISORY DISCLOSURE
Pioneer Client Associates Private Limited (Client Associates) – Disclosures under SEBI (Investment Advisers) Regulations, 2013
Client Associates started its operations in 2002 and has long standing history of providing Wealth Management services to its clients. Over the years, Client Associates has included other verticals to its operations to include other than MF and Financial Products distribution and advisory, Real Estate Advisory, Lending Solutions, Investment Banking, Succession and Estate Planning to give all wealth related services to our clients under one roof.
Client Associates has set up independent Investment Advisory Services Vertical to comply with SEBI (Investment Advisers) Regulations, and in that regard please note the disclosure contents as given below.
- Client Associates has set up an independent practice within the company structure to provide investment advisory services to its clients ('Client Associates IA Vertical' Or CAIA Vertical), which will be demarcated from and maintain an arm's length relationship with the other verticals of Client Associates which are engaged in research and distribution of mutual funds and other third party products without any financial liability.
- Investment Advisory services shall be provided to you only after the CAIA Vertical assesses your risk profile and suitability of the product.
- If you wish to avail the investment advisory services of the CAIA Vertical, you will be required to:
A) Complete and execute the Registered Investment Advisory Agreement.
B) Complete and regularly update the risk profiling and know-your client (KYC) form in the manner prescribed by Client Associates.
C) Complete and regularly update the Suitability profiling form in the manner prescribed by Client Associates.
- The Investment Advisory fee payable by the client will be in accordance with the RIA Agreement. The SEBI guidance on charging of fee is clearly reflected in the RIA Agreement in the spirit of open and transparent communication with the clients as a longstanding policy of Client Associates. Any fees and charges, payable by you for the execution/distribution services availed by you from Client Associates, must be paid directly to the respective vertical and not through the CAIA Vertical.
- Client Associates shall rank the products it offers to clients based on multiple factors as per its internal research. Client Associates shares all the relevant information of various investment products monthly and periodically through structured reports, specific recommendations and otherwise. We encourage you to go through the same and would like to specifically draw your attention to the key features, track record, warnings, risk profile, risk factors etc. In case you need any clarification, please get in touch with your Relationship Manager at CAIA Vertical
- CAIA Vertical shall maintain complete confidentiality of all information provided by you and shall not disclose any such information, without your prior consent except if such disclosure is required to be made in compliance with any applicable law or regulatory direction.
- CAIA Vertical while advising on offshore investments does not act as agent for any overseas mutual funds or any other foreign financial services company. The advice provided by CAIA on such offshore investments shall not amount to solicitation.

We have maintained segregated organisation structures and controls to ensure independence under SEBI Investment Advisers Regulations, 2013 including segregation and controls between CAIA Vertical and the team executing on distribution of products. The Distribution team of Client Associates may receive, from time to time, commission from third party product providers for distributing their products.
