“Continuous disclosure is essential to the integrity and efficiency of the ASX.”
Disclosure requirements are not new. As far back as the late 19th century, companies listing on the Sydney stock exchange were required to “promptly notify alteration of capital, calls or other material information.”
This CPD course examines the types of information that needs to be disclosed – including market sensitive information – and discuss how the ASX Listing Rules expect us to deal with these.
We use examples from recent news headlines and local cases – from the landmark Newcrest case to the recent conviction of Waratah Resources executive chairman Benjamin Kirkpatrick and the trouble surrounding Sirtex Medical. Industry knowledge and overall comprehension is reinforced by short, independent research activities and practical scenarios presented throughout the course.
Who is this training for?
This training is a must for every person who works in retail and institutional stockbroking firms, along with newcomers to the industry. People working in other financial services organisations may also benefit and deepen their understanding of the issue.
