7 December 2015 - Distributions

It was previously advised that distributions would occur in the wind up of the LM Australian Structured Products Fund (ASPF) (the Fund) by the final quarter of 2015. The finalisation of the wind up of the ASPF and the anticipated distribution has been delayed for a number of reasons such as:

  • Unresolved claim against the Fund by Joseph Hayes as joint and several Receiver and Manager of the LM First Mortgage Income Fund (LM FMIF) for contribution to operational funding of the LM Investment Management Ltd (LMIM) Gold Coast office.  Further substantiating information has been requested by our office on several occasions but is yet to be received;

  • Ongoing dispute with Custom House Currency Exchange (Australia) Pty Ltd (Custom House) who was the foreign exchange and money transfer services provider engaged by LMIM for each of its registered managed investment schemes.  Custom House experienced a loss arising from a foreign exchange contract with another registered managed investment scheme for which LMIM is the responsible entity.  As a result, Custom House has sought to claim security against all amounts it holds for LMIM including funds held for the APSF. Our office is attempting to resolve this matter amicably with Custom House as part of a broader resolution concerning all LMIM registered managed investment schemes.

  • Finalisation of outstanding taxation lodgements of the ASPF. Our office received correspondence from the Deputy Commissioner of Taxation (ATO) advising of outstanding Income Tax Returns for financial years ended 30 June 2012 through 30 June 2014 as well as several Business Activity Statements. We are currently seeking to resolve the issue of the outstanding lodgements with the Fund’s former accountant; and

  • Significant delays in relation to the completion of the audits for financial years ended 30 June 2013 and 30 June 2014. The finalisation of the audits had been initially delayed as a result of sourcing primary documentation to satisfy audit requirements which occurred largely as a result of issues surrounding accessing server records following the closure of the LMIM office in December 2014. However these issues were resolved by our office and we had expected the auditors to make significant progress when they recommenced their work in August this year. This has not occurred to the level of our expectations.

We recognise that investors are looking for a resolution to this fund and are working to complete the wind-up as expeditiously as possible. Once completed, the audited financials will be made available to investors, along with a more detailed update on the position of fund and the proposed way forward to wind up the fund.
