Wed 19 February | 12:00PM - 1:00PM | Your desk or portable device


The disclosure requirements for a substantial product holder (SPH) under the Financial Markets Conduct Act and associated regulations come with risks and blind alleys for the unwary.

This webinar offers a ‘deep dive’ into the substantive concepts and procedural framework relating to SPH disclosures, as well as the Financial Markets Authority’s guidance on disclosure notices, to make this specialised practice area a little easier to traverse.

Learning outcomes

  • Improve your understanding of substantive concepts, including key definitions (e.g. ‘relevant interests’ and exclusions) and tipping points for disclosure.
  • Learn more about the procedural framework, including how/when to file, where to get base templates, and class exemptions.
  • Enhance your knowledge via a high level run through of the FMA’s guidance on SPH disclosures.

Who should attend?

Junior to intermediate corporate and securities lawyers or those seeking a refresher, as well as practitioners who deal generally with capital markets work.
