Item 5 – Explanatory Note for the Constitutional Amendments
a. Mutual Capital Instruments
Mutual Capital Instruments (MCIs) represent a unique means of
acquiring capital for mutual entity members. By issuing MCIs as
a type of share, mutual entities can generate capital to raise their
funds to support various strategic initiates, whilst maintaining their
mutual status. MCIs are regulated by Part 2B of the Corporations
Act 2001 (Cth).
The Corporations Act provides a 3-year window during which the
mutual can make MCI amendments to their Constitution by special
resolution in general meeting, without triggering any Constitutional
procedures that would otherwise apply to this process.
For the credit union to be take advantage of the MCI capital raising
option contemplated by the Part 2B.8, Division 3 of the Corporations
Act, the eligible mutual entity must provide:
• that it intends to be a MCI mutual entity for the purposes of the
Corporations Act. Principles of Mutuality page 8 and (clause 2.1).
• that all MCIs it issues must be fully paid. (Clause 6.2.2)
• that dividends in respect of MCIs are non-cumulative
(Clause 6.2.3)
• a description of the rights attached to MCIs with respect to
participation in surplus assets and profits,(Clause 6.3.2) and
• that debts owed to a holder of a MCI by way of a divided are to
rank ahead of all other debts owed to members in a winding up
but rank below all other debts. (Clause 6.3.2)
b. Section 13.2 Eligibility to be a Director
Clause 13.2.1 (a) be amended to extend the eligible criteria to be
a Credit Union Director to include the requirement that the person
nominating to be a Director, has been a member continuously for

requirement to be a Director does not apply to Board appointed
casual Directors appointed under Clause 13.4 (b).
