In an independent capacity, the childcare centre operators have previously successfully established and managed 6 independent centres in Hawke’s Bay and Auckland.

The Structure

The Scheme is a managed investment scheme for the purposes of the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 ('FMC Act'). As the Scheme is only open to wholesale investors (as that term is defined in the FMC Act) and is therefore not a regulated offer, the Scheme is not required to be registered under the FMC Act.

The Scheme has no fixed term. The Scheme and/or an individual Subscriber's Interests in the Scheme may be terminated in various circumstances. These are provided for in the Restated and Amended Ownership and Management Deed (the ‘OMD’)

The parties to the OMD are the Manager (Quarry Capital Limited), the Nominee (Artemis Nominees Limited) and the Subscribers (the investors).

  • Error.

Warning New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This requires those offering financial products to have disclosed information that is important for investors to make an informed decision. The usual rules do not apply to this offer because there is an exclusion for offers where the amount invested upfront by the investor (plus any other investments the investor has already made in the financial products) is $750,000 or more. As a result of this exclusion, you may not receive a complete and balanced set of information. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment. Investments of this kind are not suitable for retail investors. Ask questions, read all documents carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.

This is not an offer to the public This offer is only available to investors certified as ‘wholesale investors’ within the meaning of clauses 3(2), 3(3)(a) and 3(3)(b) of Schedule 1 of the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013.
