Investment products

Publicly offered investment products

SFC authorisation involves the review of offering documents, and in some cases the structural features of a particular product, to determine if certain impartial benchmarks are met and the required information is disclosed.

Open-ended fund companies (OFCs) are subject to SFC registration. The SFC reviews the relevant constitutive documents to determine if an OFC meets the applicable legal and regulatory requirements. More information about OFCs is available here.

SFC authorisation or registration does not mean the product is suitable for you or any particular investor. The intermediary who sells the product to you has a duty, under the Code of Conduct1 and guidelines administered by the SFC, to explain to you the nature and risks of the product and why it is suitable for you given your personal circumstances.
