Discretionary mutual funds

Discretionary Mutual Funds (DMFs) offer a ‘discretionary cover’, that is, an insurance-like product that may involve an obligation on the DMF to consider meeting a claim. However, it gives the DMF a discretion as to whether it will pay the claim.

APRA has ceased its data collection from Discretionary Mutual Funds following consultation with the industry.

Unconfidential submissions 

 May 2014

Previous reporting regime

From 30 May 2014, all APRA-reporting institutions must use AUSkey to submit returns via D2A. All existing APRA-issued digital certificates that have not already expired by 30 May 2014 will no longer be valid on or after 30 May 2014.

APRA-reporting institutions that do not have an AUSkey must complete the AUSkey acknowledgement process to enable submission of returns via D2A using AUSkey.

For further details on how to enable submission via D2A using AUSkey can be found at: Direct to APRA (D2A).

Note on submissions

It is APRA's policy to publish all submissions on the APRA website unless the respondent specifically tells APRA in writing that all or part of the submission is to remain confidential. An automatically generated confidentiality statement in an email does not satisfy this purpose. If you would like only part of your submission to be confidential, you should provide this information marked as 'confidential' in a separate attachment.
