MinterEllison is at the forefront of exchange traded funds (ETF) development in the Australian market, where we have significant experience in establishing indexed equity, commodity, currency and synthetic ETFs – as well as the cross listing of ETFs.
We advise clients on all aspects of ETF launches including structuring, market participant arrangement, ASX listings (including AQUA quotation), promotion and regulation.
The ASX has amended its Operating Rules to enhance disclosure requirements and facilitate the expansion of non-conventional exchange traded funds (ETFs), such as synthetic products and foreign collective investments, on ASX AQUA. Current and prospective issuers of ETFs and Managed Funds on ASX AQUA need to understand the new requirements and ensure compliance with them.
