1. The DFSAG expects to receive applications seeking its consent to a transfer scheme only in limited circumstances, and if the scheme is not complex or contentious. If a scheme is likely to be contentious or complex, then it is more appropriate for an application to be made to the CourtG .
2. The DFSAG will not give its consent unless the applicant can demonstrate that it has taken all reasonable steps to pursue other options for implementing the scheme, such as seeking the consent of affected ClientsG or using existing agreements with ClientsG .
3. The DFSAG also will not give its consent in cases such as where:
(a) the transfer scheme is likely to materially prejudice the interests of ClientsG ;
(b) due to the complexity of the transfer scheme it is unclear what the precise impact of the scheme will be on ClientsG or whether it will be legally effective; or
(c) implementation of the transfer scheme will result in the Authorised FirmG or transferee breaching a requirement in a law or Rule, for example, if the transferee does not have the necessary authorisation to conduct that business or if the transfer will result in the Authorised FirmG or transferee breaching a prudential requirement.
4. The type of case where the DFSAG anticipates giving its consent to a transfer scheme is where the scheme is relatively simple and the applicant has taken all reasonable steps to pursue other options but has been unable to complete the necessary processes because, for example, a small number of ClientsG do not respond.
