For forestry managed investment schemes (MIS) we have just published a licensing guide to help businesses get started. The guide also explains when a scheme is not an MIS, and does not have to have a licensed manager.

We have also recently granted some exemptions for forestry MISs and their custodians from some compliance obligations. If you would like to find out more about these, see page 13 of our Regulatory Update: FMA legislative notices supporting the FMC Act regime or contact us at exemptions@fma.govt.nz
