Major overhaul on the horizon for managed investment schemes. Read our latest insights



Fundamental – Issue 34

Our first edition of Fundamental for 2021 reveals how the long running Westpac dispute clarifying the distinction between general and personal advice impacts the soon to commence design and distribution obligations (DDOs).

Then, we chat with MARQ Private Funds' managing director Andrew Patrick about regulatory challenges for fund managers, how the pandemic played out for MARQ, technology trends, and the future of impact investing.

We also take a look at pressing questions for stakeholders involved in funds management, real estate, and litigation:

  • Where are we at with COVID rent relief in each State and Territory?
  • What does licensing property developers mean for Queensland?
  • What constitutes a valid electronic contract and e-signature on a land sale contract?
  • Are you operating a financial market without a licence?
  • Do you understand the small business insolvency reforms and changes to bankruptcy laws?
  • How does ASIC see the regulatory technology space?

We also celebrate our new partner promotions and warmly congratulate Emma Donaghue (Funds Management), Selina Nutley (Litigation) and Elliott Stumm (Funds Management).

We hope you enjoy this latest edition of Fundamental.
