Our Industry

Maintaining strong governance around our investment profession

The private capital investment industry in Australia is more than 25 years old, and for the duration of that time the Australian Investment Council has played a leadership role in maintaining a strong and comprehensive governance framework around the sector.

In conjunction with the statutory obligations set out in the Corporations Law and various regulatory guidance statements administered by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission, the Australian Investment Council requires all of its investor member firms to comply with the Code of Private Equity Governance and Conduct , which was most recently updated and approved by the Council’s Board in May 2017.

Every year, each of the Australian Investment Council’s investor member firms is required to provide a signed declaration confirming that their firm maintains policies and procedures to ensure that they comply with the obligations set out in the Code. This positive periodic confirmation ensures that participants in our industry maintain an ongoing focus on risk management and compliance, as well as disclosure and transparency, and recognises the centrality of these practices to providing world-class professional investment services to the investors into private capital funds in Australia.

The private capital investment firms that have confirmed their compliance with the Council’s Code of Conduct for the 2019-20 financial year are listed below. We encourage all limited partners into private capital funds in Australia to require their investment firms to be ongoing members of the Australian Investment Council, and to provide an annual declaration attesting to their firm’s compliance with the obligations and expectations set out in the industry-wide Code.
