Integrated AML is an essential aid for in-house legal teams, compliance officers and risk managers. It is designed to help organisations to understand and comply with their obligations under the Australian anti-money laundering regime. Integrated AML brings together the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Cth) and related rules, regulations, explanatory materials, guidance notes, policies and AUSTRAC material in a single easy-to-use package.

APRA’s 'fit and proper' prudential standards came into effect on 1 October 2006 and impact a range of personnel in a variety of organisations. Under the standards, general insurers, life insurers and authorised deposit-taking institutions are required to establish and maintain minimum standards of fitness and propriety for all 'responsible' persons in an organisation.

Australia's new 'Superannuation Safety' regime commenced on 1 July 2004, with a two-year transition for all existing trustees to apply for a new RSE licence and to register their funds. The new regime involves not only a new licensing requirement, but also standards for responsible officers and directors of trustees, adequate resources, outsourcing and risk management.

We have developed our Integrated FSR tool to bring together the relevant provisions of the FSRA, regulations and class orders in a single, easy-to-use package.

Our Toolkit provides a framework to assist Australian financial services licensees to implement conflict of interest management arrangements to meet the requirements of the Corporations Act.

This unique Toolkit, available on CD-ROM, includes 'skeleton' draft documents of all the documentary proofs your company needs to develop and lodge with Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC).

Both married couples and, in most Australian States and Territories, defacto couples (including same sex couples) who separate are able to divide superannuation entitlements as part of the overall property settlement. This regime has had significant impact on the Australian superannuation industry.

Our Disclosure Toolkits focus on the disclosure requirements (more than 500 content requirements) for preparing key disclosure documents under the FSR (Chapter 7) and fundraising (Chapter 6D) regimes.
