He advises on all legal issues impacting funds management entities and their service providers, including fund and investment management operator structuring, product development, distribution, initial and ongoing regulatory compliance.

As well as having experience with Australian financial services licensing, licensing reliefs, managed investment scheme registrations and other relevant Australian registrations like offshore banking unit (OBU) registrations, Martin regularly collaborates with his global colleagues to assist Australian headquartered managers with foreign registrations and obligations around the world, such as US SEC registrations, CFTC CPO/CTA exemptions, blue sky filings, QPAM exemption and ERISA plan obligations.
