What is an mFund?

An mFund product is an unlisted managed fund admitted for settlement under the ASX Operating Rules and available to investors through the mFund Settlement Service. The ASX rule framework supports the mFund Settlement Service by ensuring all parties, including stockbrokers, product issuers and unit registrars, are accountable for their roles and responsibilities. This rule framework underpins the high level of standards expected of services delivered by ASX.

What is the mFund Settlement Service?

The mFund Settlement Service enables you to buy and sell units in Ausbil's unlisted managed funds (mFunds) through a process similar to buying and selling shares.You can easily buy (apply for) and sell (redeem) units in these unlisted managed funds via a participating broker and the transactions are settled using CHESS, ASX’s world-class electronic settlement system. Your holdings in these funds are held electronically and can be linked to the same Holder Identification Number (HIN) used to hold other investments transacted through ASX. This means you can track your investments in these funds using the same systems you use for shares and other securities.
