The Asia Region Funds Passport begins to take shape

It's been a busy few months for the development of the Asia Region Funds Passport.

In late August, the Federal Government released exposure draft legislation to accommodate the introduction of the Passport in Australia. Once implemented, the Passport will allow fund managers from participating economies to market and sell interests in qualifying funds to retail investors in other passport jurisdictions within a streamlined regulatory framework.

Partner Penny Nikoloudis, Senior Associate Rebecca Sheehy and Associate Mai Go report on the proposed multilateral regulatory framework for the Passport and some of the issues arising from the exposure draft legislation.
