    This interactive 2-day programme has been structured to focus on the recommendations set out in the Securities Commission’s Prospectus Guidelines (Guidelines), in particular Part III: Division 1 – Plain Language Guide for Prospectus, which seeks to provide guidance on the usage of plain language in preparing a prospectus under the Guidelines.

    We will explore and learn new style of thinking, with an aim to guide preparers of prospectuses and those who vet financial disclosure documents on creating simple and easy-to-read offer documents that investors can understand, while at the same time ensuring that these prospectuses meet all regulatory requirements.
