New annual meeting requirements: Is your fund prepared?

10 minute read  05.08.2020 Maged Girgis, Phillip Turner

We provide an overview of the new requirements and guidance on the preparations trustees should be making ahead of their first meeting, taking into account, that many meetings will be held by electronic means given COVID-19 restrictions.

Treasury Laws Amendment (Improving Accountability and Member Outcomes in Superannuation Measures No. 1) Act 2019 introduced a new requirement for superannuation funds to hold annual member meetings and many trustees are set to hold their first meetings this year.

MinterEllison Partner Maged Girgis and Special Counsel Phillip Turner have written an article outlining the new annual members' meetings regime for funds and comparing it to the existing regimes for annual general meetings for public companies and for meetings of members of registered managed investments schemes.

The article includes expert guidance on the preparations trustees should be making ahead of their first meeting, taking into account, that many meetings will be held by electronic means given COVID-19 restrictions.
