"The Archdiocesan Development Fund (the Fund) is not subject to the provisions of the Corporation Act 2001 nor has it been examined or approved by or registered with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. The Fund is not subject to the normal disclosure requirements of a financial institution. Deposits with the Fund are guaranteed by CDPF Limited, a company established by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference for this purpose. We welcome your investment with the Fund rather than with a profit oriented commercial organisation as a conscious commitment by you to support the Charitable, Religious and Educational works of the Catholic Church.
In addition, neither the Corporation of the Trustees of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Brisbane, nor the Archdiocesan Development Fund is prudentially supervised by APRA; contributions to the Fund do not obtain the benefit of the depositor protection provisions of the Banking Act 1959; and the Fund is designed for investors who wish to promote the charitable purposes of the Fund."
