PAFs/PuAFs During A Pandemic
The Complete Guide to Australia's Private & Public Ancillary FundsTM
Many ancillary funds (both private and public) will still be required to distribute a minimum of 4-5% of their assets as valued at the end of last financial year (before the 2020 stock market collapse). While ancillary funds can apply to reduce their minimum distribution rate and their financial contributions into the fund, there is currently $11 billion held in PAFs and PuAFs, and The Complete Guide to Australia's Private & Public Ancillary FundsTM places these funds at your fingertips. The Guide is the most comprehensive and up-to-date database of its kind.
