Australia?ÇÖs Superannuation Funds Receive Consumer Protections under Proposed Regulations

Australia?ÇÖs Governor-General issued proposed regulations that would make limited recourse borrowing arrangements financial products under the Corporations Act 2001 when entered into by regulated superannuation funds. The proposed regulations also amend current regulations to provide that limited recourse borrowing arrangements are not a credit facility under the Corporations Act 2001 when acquired by superannuation funds, and an Australian Financial Services Licence covering derivatives or securities is taken to also cover limited recourse borrowing arrangements. The superannuation funds would receive consumer protections when purchasing installment warrants. The proposed regulations are located here, and an explanatory memo is located here.
