— We are a Licensed Financial Markets Supervisor

Our important role in ensuring well-regulated financial markets

Our role as independent supervisor, is to provide oversight of organisations seeking funds from the public.

A supervisor works within the requirements of various legislation and the documents governing the offer, such as a trust deed.

We actively monitor that the issuer/manager/operator of a supervised entity is performing their duties and obligations in accordance with the trust deed, offer documents and the legislation.

We act in the best interests of investors and aim to deliver a superior client centric and always evolving supervision model, with pragmatic regulatory leadership that protects the interests of investors and provides value add service to our clients.

We remain independent which means we can make unbiased and impartial decisions for the benefit of investors.

You can expect us to:

  • Help you comply with relevant financial markets obligations
  • Share insights into compliance, risk and operational best practice
  • Discharge our supervisory responsibilities effectively and efficiently
  • Deliver a high level of service and commitment to you

We take pride in being the “subject matter expert” and a trusted adviser/partner to our clients’ business.

The Corporate Trustee Services (CTS) division is separated from the rest of Trustees Executors’ business through governance and operational independence and has its own independent Board of Directors.
