Consultation Paper: Fund update template and guidance for calculating risk indicators

1 December 2014

This consultation paper is for market participants that manage funds and for their supervisors and investors. It explains how we propose to use two of the tools available to the FMA under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMC Act) and the Financial Markets Conduct Regulations 2014 (Regulations) to support the new offers regime for managed funds. We are consulting on a proposed ‘frameworks or methodologies’ (FM) template for fund updates and new guidance for calculating risk indicators.

We invite you to review our proposals and share your feedback with us. We welcome general comments and have also included a number of questions seeking specific feedback. Your response will inform the final (and binding) fund update template as well as the final risk indicator guidance note. It may also provide the FMA with further areas where FMs or guidance may be useful or necessary.

Submissions close on 16 January 2015.

Please use this feedback form. This can be found on the final page of the consultation paper and gives you details of what you need to do.
