Following extensive consultation, the Financial Markets Authority will be publishing its “Guidance Note on Effective Disclosure” on 31 May 2012.
The guidance note is for issuers of securities, their directors and advisers. It explains the approach the FMA intends to take to reviewing prospectuses and investment statements using its statutory powers, and also provides their views on good practice for preparing these disclosure documents.
The FMA have said that their guidance note will help market participants be confident they understand the regulators approach and how they interpret, and intend to apply, the law relating to their responsibilities.
The guidance note will influence the disclosure documentation of all Superannuation and KiwiSaver schemes.
