ASIC is inviting the Australian funds management industry to contribute to a review of the Asia Region Funds Passport (ARFP) through a short survey.

The ARFP is a multilateral framework intended to support the development of an Asia-region funds management industry through improved market access and regulatory harmonisation. It allows collective investment products offered in one participating economy to be sold to retail investors in another participating economy.

The survey will focus on the level of industry interest and/or preparedness to use the ARFP and the factors informing industry decisions about the ARFP.
