Law of Investments examines the various areas of law that impact on investors and those working in industries associated with investment products. It covers Chapter 7 of the Corporations Act and the requirements associated with licensing including the legal obligations and compliance requirements of licensees and their representatives, disclosure, dispute resolution and investor protection.

This edition includes discussion of the latest changes proposed to Chapter 7 and the associated regulatory guides and also recent case law.

Various forms of investment are considered, including managed investments, real property and direct investments into companies. The main sources of law relating to these areas of study include:-

  • statutes such as the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth); the Australian Securities and Investments Commission Act 2001 (Cth); the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth); the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 (Cth); and the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (Cth);
  • the common law, including the tort of negligence, contract law and fiduciary duties; and
  • administrative actions, by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) through regulatory guides and rulings.
Law of Investments also covers the effect of bankruptcy and marriage and relationship breakdown on investors and also the importance of estate planning for the investor. There is a specific chapter on superannuation and the recent changes to the rules governing the concessional contribution limits. Legal aspects of Self Managed Superannuation Funds are also discussed in some detail.

This book provides most of the guidance that a serious investor may need on how the current law impacts on their particular investments. It is also designed to assist investment advisers to quickly and accurately find the appropriate law that relates to their requirements.
