Compliance Committee

In accordance with the Corporations Act 2001, the Responsible Entity has established a Compliance Committee in respect of the Scheme. A majority of the members of the Compliance Committee are independent of the Responsible Entity. The Compliance Committee Charter governs the operation of the Compliance Committee.  Members of the Compliance Committee have duties imposed upon them by section 601JD of the Corporation Act and applicable ASIC policy.   These duties include assisting the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) in carrying out surveillance checks of the Responsible Entity or Scheme pursuant to the Corporations Act. 

Independent members of the Compliance Committee include:
