EquityStar Momentum Growth Fund

For Immediate Release Investor Alert OSC




TORONTO – The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) is warning Ontario investors not to invest with EquityStar Momentum Growth Fund (“EquityStar”), which purports to be located in the United States. An Ontario resident was contacted by a representative of EquityStar via e-mail about an investment opportunity; however, EquityStar and its representative(s) are not registered to sell securities in Ontario.

On June 6, 2013 the New Brunswick Securities Commission issued a similar warning after two of their local residents were contacted by EquityStar.

The mandate of the OSC is to provide protection to investors from unfair, improper or fraudulent practices and to foster fair and efficient capital markets and confidence in capital markets. Investors are urged to check the registration of any person or company offering an investment opportunity and to review the OSC’s investor materials available at www.osc.gov.on.ca

If you have any questions or information relating to this matter, please contact the OSC Contact Centre at 1-877-785-1555.
