Why? Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include:

  • Social Security Number and Bank Account Numbers
  • Assets and Income
  • Account Balances and Account Transactions
  • Specific Investment Experience
How? All financial companies need to share customers' personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their customers' personal information; the reasons the Funds choose to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.

What we do
How do the Funds protect my personal information? To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.
How do the Funds collect my personal information?

We collect your personal information, for example, when you:

  • Open an account or direct us to buy/sell your securities
  • Provide account information or give us your contact information
  • Seek advice about your investments

We also collect your personal information from others, such as your financial representative, affiliates, or other companies.

Why can't I limit all sharing?

Federal law gives you the right to limit only

  • sharing for affiliates' everyday business purposes—information about your creditworthiness
  • affiliates from using your information to market to you
  • sharing for non-affiliates to market to you

State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing. See below for more information on your rights under state laws.

What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else? Your choices will apply to everyone on your account–unless you tell us otherwise.

Companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial or non-financial companies.

  • Our affiliates include financial companies with a Bank of Montreal or BMO name; and financial companies such as BMO Harris Bank N.A.

Companies not related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and non-financial companies.

  • The Funds do not share with non-affiliates so they can market to you.
Joint Marketing

A formal agreement between non-affiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you.

  • The Funds do not jointly market.
