New Zealand: Chapman Tripp Submission on draft 'Guide to the FMA's View of Conduct'
Last Updated: 4 February 2017

Chapman Tripp commends the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) for producing a Guide on the FMA's view of conduct.

The guidance should be welcomed by regulated issuers and financial service providers who do business in New Zealand.

Overall, Chapman Tripp believes that the FMA's draft guide could be a useful contribution to New Zealand's evolving regulatory landscape under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMCA), and its approach to achieving clarity and transparency is commendable.

We have offered feedback with the goal of improving the guide, and made suggestions for revisions which, in our opinion, would assist regulated entities to understand their obligations and the FMA's expectations in relation to market conduct.
