RG 138 Foreign passport funds
Issued 11 September 2018
This guide is for foreign passport fund operators seeking to enter, or operating in, Australia under the Asia Region Funds Passport—a multilaterally agreed framework to facilitate the cross-border marketing of managed funds across participating economies in the Asia region.
It explains our approach as a host regulator to the regulation of foreign passport funds in Australia, including:
- the entry requirements to become a ‘notified foreign passport fund’;
- ongoing requirements for notified foreign passport funds; and
- the process for removing notified foreign passport funds (denotification).
It also explains our powers and responsibilities in relation to notified foreign passport funds and their operators, including our discretionary powers to grant exemptions and modifications to the Australian Passport Rules.
