Anti Money-Laundering and Counter-terrorism financing

Peet is required to comply with the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (AML/CTF Act) and has adopted an anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing risk management program. The program:

  • Sets out the key measures that Peet will apply to assess the AML/CTF risks to its activities;
  • Sets out the key measures that Peet will apply to mitigate and control those risks; and
  • Explains the manner in which Peet will approach customer identification and verification.
The AML/CTF Act applies to Peet when it issues or transfers interests in managed investment schemes, sells units in managed investment schemes which are acquired as underwriter, and sells shares in company syndicates which are acquired as underwriter.

As prescribed by the AML/CTF Act, Peet must undertake customer identification procedures for each investor in the Company's managed investment schemes called 'know your customer' identification.

Peet is updating its AML/CTF risk management procedures. As a result, additional information will be required from investors in managed investment schemes at the time of a transfer of units. These new requirements will be applied from 1 January 2012.

Minimum 'know your customer' identification is required to be collected from each party involved in a transfer of units. The level of 'know your customer' identification required to be collected will depend on the specific circumstances.

If you have any questions with these new procedures, please do not hesitate to contact this office and ask for the Compliance Officer.
