Detailed information about offers of financial products is available online at a new government website called the Disclose Register.
You’ll also find a copy of the Product disclosure statement (PDS).
Providers must keep this information up-to-date while they continue to offer their investment, so you can check online for the latest information.
The Disclose Register contains two separate registers of information – one for offers and one for schemes.
In each case, the easiest way to search is to enter the offer or scheme number. You’ll find this in the PDS. The person offering you the investment must give you a copy of the PDS before you invest.
If you are purchasing financial products from someone other than the original issuer, for example, buying shares that are already listed on the NZX, the PDS and the Disclose Register information may be out of date.
Information updates for companies listed on the NZX are published on the NZX website.
