On 16 March 2024 we issued a Supplementary Product Disclosure Statement (SPDS) which includes an update to the information about Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing laws and Sanction laws to the following section: 


Anti-Money Laundering and Counter - Terrorism Financing laws and Sanction laws 


We are required to comply with these laws, including the need to establish your identity (and, if relevant, the identity of other persons associated with your account) and accordingly hold such information. Instructions for completing the identification process are included with the application forms. Additionally, from time to time, we may require additional information to assist with this process and keep a record.  


Where legally obliged to do so, we may disclose the information gathered about you to regulatory and/ or law enforcement agencies, and we may not be able to tell you when this occurs. We may be unable to transact with you or other persons. This may include actions such as delaying, blocking, freezing or refusing to process a transaction, or ceasing to provide you with a product or service, if we have reasonable grounds to believe or suspect potential breaches of Australian and/or international laws or sanctions. This may impact on your investment and could result in a loss of income and principal invested. We will not incur any liability for any loss suffered if we are required to take one or more of these actions. 


This update should be read in conjunction with the SPDS and the FirstChoice Wholesale Investments Product Disclosure Statement, Issue No 2023/2 dated 18 November 2023 (PDS).
