Participant details — Managed investment schemes

All scheme participants must first exist on another register or directory

When registering a managed investment scheme, you need to provide the names of all relevant participants, or the Companies Office register or directory number that's been allocated to them. Participants may also need a particular financial service provider (FSP) registration and be licensed by the Financial Markets Authority to provide certain market services.

Check participants are on a register or directory first

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 a scheme automatically updates certain participant details which are held in the following places:

Participant Source
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
