The Disclose Register

Page last updated: 14 May 2015

You can access detailed, up-to-date information about investments online at a Government website called Disclose.

Information on Disclose includes:

  • financial statements
  • information about the provider such as constitutional documents and description of key contracts
  • for managed investment schemes, how the provider manages the investment (their Statement of Investment Performance and Objectives)
  • the Product disclosure statement (PDS).

Disclose contains two separate registers of information – one for offers and one for schemes.

Search in the ‘offers’ register for information about offers of financial products such as bonds, shares and derivatives.

Search in the ‘schemes’ register for information about investment schemes who manage products such as managed funds and superannuation schemes.

The quickest and 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.

Use ‘searching for an offer or scheme’ on the Disclose Register website for more help.

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for example, buying shares that are already listed on the NZX, the PDS and the Disclose Register information may be out of date.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.
