PART 5C.3 - THE CONSTITUTION  

SECTION 601GA   CONTENTS OF THE CONSTITUTION  

601GA(1)   [ Contents]  

The constitution of a registered scheme must make adequate provision for:


(a) the consideration that is to be paid to acquire an interest in the scheme; and


(b) the powers of the responsible entity in relation to making investments of, or otherwise dealing with, scheme property; and


(c) the method by which complaints made by members in relation to the scheme are to be dealt with; and


(d) winding up the scheme.

601GA(2)   [ Fees, indemnities]  

If the responsible entity is to have any rights to be paid fees out of scheme property, or to be indemnified out of scheme property for liabilities or expenses incurred in relation to the performance of its duties, those rights:


(a) must be specified in the scheme's constitution; and


(b) must be available only in relation to the proper performance of those duties;

and any other agreement or arrangement has no effect to the extent that it purports to confer such a right.

601GA(3)   [ Powers to borrow, raise money]  

If the responsible entity is to have any powers to borrow or raise money for the purposes of the scheme:


(a) those powers must be specified in the scheme's constitution; and


(b) any other agreement or arrangement has no effect to the extent that it purports to confer such a power.

601GA(4)   [ Right to withdraw]  

If members are to have a right to withdraw from the scheme, the scheme's constitution must:


(a) specify the right; and


(b) if the right may be exercised while the scheme is liquid (as defined in section 601KA) - set out adequate procedures for making and dealing with withdrawal requests; and


(c) if the right may be exercised while the scheme is not liquid (as defined in section 601KA) - provide for the right to be exercised in accordance with Part 5C.6 and set out any other adequate procedures (consistent with that Part) that are to apply to making and dealing with withdrawal requests.

The right to withdraw, and any provisions in the constitution setting out procedures for making and dealing with withdrawal requests, must be fair to all members.
