Under the regulations, custodians must meet obligations such as providing regular reports to clients and getting assurance reports from qualified auditors, among others. The regulations, enacted under the Financial Advisers Act 2008 (FA Act), relate closely to broker disclosure and conduct obligations under Part 3A of this Act.
