New Compliance Plan Auditor appointed
to service RE business

 

Following a review of our operations to ensure we support our specialist responsible entity (RE) service offering to the best possible standards, Equity Trustees has appointed a single provider to manage the managed investment scheme (MIS) compliance plan audit program.

The move from multiple providers to a single provider following a tender process was to ensure consistent high quality audit processes as efficiently as possible from a time and cost perspective.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) has been appointed as the MIS compliance plan auditor for a period of three years replacing:

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu
Ernst & Young
Grant Thornton Audit Pty Ltd
KPMG
Pitcher Partners


Equity Trustees is working with PWC and outgoing compliance plan auditors to make sure the transition is completed.

Equity Trustees is RE for more than 300 funds. 

A list of impacted funds serviced under Equity Trustees Limited (ABN 46 004 031 298 AFSL 240975) is here.

A notification for trusts impacted under EQT Responsible Entity Services Ltd (ABN 94 101 103 011 AFSL 223271) is here.

Queries or questions about this change from Fund Managers, Investment Managers or Unit holders of the funds, can be directed to productteam@eqt.com.au.
