Post: ASIC issues new legislative instrument for exchange traded funds

ASIC has released a new legislative instrument ASIC Corporations (Relief to Facilitate Admission of Exchange Traded Funds) Instrument 2024/147. It replaces [CO 13/721] ASIC Corporations (Relief to facilitate quotation of exchange traded funds on the AQUA Market) 13/721 ([CO 13/721]) which was due to sunset on 1 April 2024.

The new legislative instrument extends the relief in [CO 13/721] to a broader class of quoted funds, not limited to those which track an index.

ASIC made the new legislative instrument after considering the submissions received, in response to Consultation Paper 374 Remaking ASIC class order on exchange traded funds: [CO 13/721] (CP 374). Respondents to CP 374 generally supported ASIC’s proposals.
