Iqon Financial Inc. clients who invested in Portus Alternative Asset Management will be reimbursed the full amount of their capital investment, as a result of the allegations made by the Ontario Securities Commission that Portus violated a number of securities laws back in February of last year, resulting in the collapse of the Canadian hedge fund, according to the Toronto Star.

Manulife Financial Corporation, a Portus creditor, also offered its clients their money back, back in March of last year. Now, unlike other Portus investors, both Manulife and Iqon clients will not have to wait until Portus is "wound up and assets are distributed to creditors."
