Listed Registry

Mainstream Fund Services provides registry services to Australian exchange-traded products.

Our strengths lie in supporting exchange-traded funds (ETFs), listed investment trusts (LITs) and listed investment companies (LICs) looking for a competitively priced, flexible and responsive registry solution.

We are the administrator or registrar for a number of leading ASX listed trusts and mFunds.

Services

Listing

If you are planning to list on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), we can help you plan your initial public offering (IPO) including application processing, banking monies, reconciling bank accounts and allocations, producing welcome packs and issuing holding statements.

Once listed, we can help you manage your ongoing investor reporting and disclosure requirements. We can also organise your annual general meeting (AGM) including setup, assistance with polls and management of any proxy voting.

Transaction processing

We can electronically settle all transactions via CHESS and process off-market transfers. We can calculate and pay dividends, manage investors’ dividend/distribution reinvestment plans (DRP) and process corporate actions and elections.

Talk to us if you have additional special projects that require administering such as capital raisings, a rights issue, or special dividends.

Reporting and correspondence

We offer a full service investor relations contact centre that can respond to enquiries via phone, email, fax and mail.

We can manage the day-to-day maintenance of shareholder records including processing requests to change address or bank account details, annual report elections, notation of probates and powers of attorney. In addition Mainstream can print and mail shareholder communications such as nomination and proxy forms.

Shareholders/unitholders and their advisers can access our online portal to view and update their holdings and download forms. The portal can be customised with your company/trust’s branding.

Advantages

  • Outsourced services all in one place

With Mainstream you can combine your listed registry services with your investment administration, if you want your registry and pricing done in the one place, or use it as a stand-alone service. We offer a full service to ETF providers, from daily NAV and portfolio composition file (PCF) calculations to fund accounting and listed registry.

  • Customised service

Even if your registry needs are modest, we can create a service solution that meets your needs rather than asking you to fit our model.

  • Easier budgeting of investor relations costs

We can charge by activity or a bundled fee covering your requirements. This will give you a clearer cost estimate for budgetary purposes.

  • Professional impression for your shareholders

Our investor service centre, staffed by our friendly qualified employees, can handle all of your investors’ calls, emails and correspondence. We’ll process all transactions and maintain the shareholder register. Every client interaction can be branded as you like, including our web portal.
