Statement of reasons

This notice, which comes into force on 30 November 2004, amends the Securities Act (Multiple Participants Superannuation Schemes) Exemption Notice 1998 ( the principal notice) in 2 ways.

First, it extends the expiry date of the principal notice from 30 November 2004 to 30 November 2009.

Secondly, it gives participants an option in relation to the filing of admission deeds. This new option would mean that either—

  • the admission deed is filed with the Registrar as currently required by clause 8 of the principal notice; or

  • it is a term of the offer that the investment statement, or a supplement to the investment statement, states that the admission deed is available, free of charge, to specified persons and prospective members of the scheme on request to the participant.

The Securities Commission considers that it is appropriate to grant the exemption for the following reasons:

  • the exemption notice continues to provide useful and relevant exemptions for trustees and promoters of multiple employer superannuation schemes that take the form of master trusts. Superannuation scheme trustees would otherwise have to disclose details in the investment statement and prospectus about numerous scheme participants, and a large number of employers and other participants would be required to sign the prospectus:

  • the amendments to the condition requiring the admission deed to be filed protects the commercial sensitivity of information in the admission deed by enabling the admission deed to be obtained free of charge on request by a member or prospective member of the scheme, rather than made publicly available by filing it with the Registrar.


Issued under the authority of the Acts and Regulations Publication Act 1989.

Date of notification in Gazette: 25 November 2004.
