The scheme manager's details will be displayed in your offer as soon as you select the underlying scheme in the registration process.
Check participants are on a register or directory first
You'll need to provide the names of all relevant participants, or the number that's been allocated to them on the relevant Companies Office register or directory.
Most participants will be found on a Companies Office register and if not, will need to be recorded on the Other Participants directory.
This means your application to register an offer automatically updates certain participant details which are held in the following places:
|Companies registered in NZ||Companies Register|
|Other entity registered in NZ, eg, credit union, overseas issuer, limited partnership||Companies Office|
|Individuals, boards of trustees, partnerships and other participants||Other Participants directory|
|Financial service providers||Financial Service Providers Register|
Participant details you need to provide
The details you need to provide for each participant varies.
An offer can have more than 1 offeror. If the offeror is not the scheme manager, you'll need to provide the following information.
- Offeror's name and number
- Offeror's FSP number, if required — ensuring the offeror is registered for "Participating in an FMC offer as an issuer or offeror of financial products"
- Offeror's email address. If you're a third party acting on behalf of the issuer, this must be the offeror's email address, not yours.
Adding a participant to the Other Participants directory
The Other Participants directory lists individuals, boards of trustees, partnerships and other participants that don't exist on another Companies Office register.
If you've searched the directory and can't find your participant listed there, you'll need to add them to the Other Participants directory.Search the Other Participants directory
