Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing


David Court

An AFSL is needed whenever a person provides a financial service, which includes issuing a financial product. An MIS is a financial product unless it has less than 20 members and it is not promoted by a person (or an associate of a person) who is in the business of promoting managed investment schemes. .


The promoter issue is a difficult one and will depend on who promotes the scheme, who their associates are, and what business activities they engage in.
