Limit of one offer per client. In the case of a joint account, only the primary account holder will be entitled to receive the cash back Award.
Net new assets are cash and securities sourced from a non-BMO Wealth Management account. The Promotion Account cannot be funded by transferring funds directly or indirectly from another investment account with BMO InvestorLine, BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., BMO Private Investment Counsel Inc., or BMO Investments Inc. This will be tracked from the beginning of the Promotion Period (November 1st, 2017) through to Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 (the "Holding Period"). Withdrawals across any of your BMO InvestorLine accounts during the Holding period will be deducted from your Net New Assets. If any such withdrawals cause your Net New Assets to drop below the minimum threshold, you will not qualify for the Award – PLEASE SEE POINTS 8 a) and b) FOR FURTHER CLARITY ON THIS MATTER.
The Cashback Award will be paid into the Promotion Account the week of August 13, 2018, provided you comply with all requirements outlined in these Terms and Conditions including maintaining the minimum Net New Assets balance in your Promotion Account and across all your InvestorLine accounts as of November 1, 2017 until August 1, 2018 – PLEASE SEE POINTS 9 a), b) and c) FOR FURTHER CLARITY ON THIS MATTER. You will see the cash back for Fall Promo on your account statement.
The Transfer Fee Award - we will cover up to $200 maximum in Transfer Fees.
You may only have one (1) Promotion Account. If you open more than one Promotion Account during the offer period, the following criteria will be used to select the Qualifying Account that will receive the Award, in descending priority:
The Qualifying Account with the highest Net New Asset transfer as of Jan 31, 2018 will be automatically selected to maximize your Award.
Cash Qualifying Accounts will be selected over registered or margin Qualifying Accounts;
The Qualifying Account with the most recent opening date will be selected; and
If more than one Qualifying Account is opened on the same date, the Qualifying Account with the lower account number will be selected.
Deposits that are split across more than one account will not be considered for eligibility when calculating whether you meet the net new asset minimum threshold (for example, $25K in a RRSP and $25K in a Non-registered account cannot be combined to reach the $50K threshold).
Withdrawals across any of your BMO InvestorLine accounts during the Holding period will be deducted from your Net New Assets. You will not qualify for the Award if during the Holding Period withdrawals across any of your BMO InvestorLine accounts cause your Net New Assets to drop below the minimum threshold.
To further illustrate this point please review the scenarios below:
Before the promotion period Tim had an overall balance of $200K in a non- registered account. During the promotion period he opens a new RRSP account with a $250K deposit ($50K was the min. requirement to meet promotion eligibility). During the holding period, he withdraws $50K from his non-registered account.
This brings his Net New Assets (across his accounts) to $200K. Since $200K is above the minimum threshold, he qualifies for the cash back promotion.
Before the promotion period Anna had an overall balance of $200K in her non-registered account. During the promotion period she opened a new RRSP account with a $200K deposit. During the holding period, she withdraws $100K from his non-registered account.
This brings her Net New Assets (across his accounts) to $100K. Since $50K is the minimum threshold, she qualifies for the cash back You will continue to qualify for the Award if during the Holding Period market fluctuations cause your Net New Assets to fall below the minimum threshold.
The Promotion Account must be in good standing throughout the Holding Period in order to qualify for the Award. If during the Holding Period the Promotion Account has: (a) been in a debit position, (b) had unfunded margin calls, or (c) had outstanding documentation or other items, the Promotion Account may be deemed ineligible, in our sole discretion. No outstanding documentation or any other outstanding items should be pending on your Promotion Account during the Holding Period.
You will continue to qualify for the Award if during the Holding Period market fluctuations cause your Net New Assets to fall below the minimum threshold.
BMO InvestorLine may cancel, revise, or change the terms of the Promotion (including the Promotion Period) at any time.
There may be tax implications to the Award. For registered accounts, no tax receipt will be issued for the Award. If you require tax advice, please contact your personal tax advisor.
