2 DIVERSIFY WITH HIGH YIELDING U.S. EQUITIES 1

3 WHAT IS ANZ ETFS S&P 500 HIGH YIELD LOW VOLATILITY ETF? AT A GLANCE Benchmark S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index Management Fee 0.35% Exposure U.S. Equities ASX Code ZYUS THE IMPORTANCE OF INVESTING IN THE U.S. Australia represents only 2.2% of the global equity market. By investing in U.S. equities, which represent over 50% of global equities, Australian investors can complement their portfolio with comprehensive exposure to global growth. The ANZ ETFS S&P 500 High Yield Low Volatility ETF (ASX Code: ZYUS) is the first ETF in Australia to offer high yield with volatility screening. The ETF aims to provide a higher yield and lower volatility than the S&P 500, by tracking the S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index. ZYUS can be traded by investors on the ASX, it trades just like a share and is settled and held in normal brokerage accounts. A HISTORY OF STRONG YIELDS Since 2001, the S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index has delivered on average 4.7% yield, and up to 4.3% yield over and above the S&P 500. Country Breakdown of the S&P Global Broad Market Index (BMI) United States 51.4% Japan 9.0% UK 6.5% France 3.1% Switzerland 3.0% Germany 2.8% Canada 2.8% China 2.7% Australia 2.2% Other 16.5% Historical Dividend Yield 5% Source: S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC; data as of January % 4.0% AVERAGE 3% 2% 2.1% AVERAGE 1% 0% Jan 13 Jul 13 Jan 14 Jul 14 Dec 14 Dec 15 S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend S&P 500 Source: Bloomberg Note: data back-tested.

Past performance is not an indication of future performance. MITIGATING THE EFFECTS OF PRICE SHOCKS S&P 500 CONSTITUENTS The index has demonstrated that less-risky stocks can deliver a higher return in the long run. The SPDJI Index Committee selects the top 75 highest-yielding stocks from the S&P 500. Growth of AU$10,000 Initial Investment December 2005 to December ,000 30,000 AUD 30,362 The top 50 least volatile stocks from that list of 75 stocks are identified. 25,000 20,000 AUD 20,370 AUD 19,436 15,000 10,000 5,000 The final 50 stocks are weighted according to dividend yield. Sector weights are capped at 25% and there are no more than 10 stocks from each sector. 0 S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend S&P 500 Russell 2000 Source: Bloomberg; returns in AUD Note: Past performance is not an indication of future performance. Rebalanced semi-annually.

5 KEY BENEFITS U.S. exposure Investors gain exposure to the performance of the U.S. equity market and the U.S. dollar through ZYUS. Well-diversified Each sector is capped at 25% of the index weight in pursuit of a high yield while retaining balanced exposure across sectors. Seeks sustainable yield To deliver both capital gain and income, high yield stocks are further screened for liquidity, dividend growth and free cash flows. Volatility screening ZYUS uses low volatility screening with a view to delivering less volatility than S&P 500. High income distribution ZYUS aims to distribute higher dividends than S&P 500. The current dividend yield of the S&P 500 Low Volatility High Dividend Index is around 4% compared to a yield on the S&P 500 of 2.1%*. Enhanced yield In seeking to improve the yield of the portfolio, ZYUS weighs the constituents by dividend yield. Tax convenient Unlike ETFs cross-listed from the US, this product is domiciled in Australia and investors do not need to complete and provide a W-8 BEN form. Cost-effective At 0.35% per annum, ZYUS is a cost-effective way to access the market compared with active funds. Easy to access Like shares, the ETF is traded on the ASX throughout the day and settled in normal brokerage accounts. Transparent The portfolio, costs and valuations are publicly available. * Source: Bloomberg Note: data back-tested. Past performance is not an indication of future performance. RISK FACTORS The following are just some of the risk factors which should be carefully considered by prospective investors before deciding whether to invest in the Units. Risks in relation to an index Past performance is not an indication of future performance and the investment performance of the Units could be volatile. An investment in the Units involves a significant degree of risk. Risks in relation to the Fund An investment in an Index via a Fund will expose investors to risks inherent in holding the exposure via a Unit: Market Risk ETFs aim to replicate the price movements of their underlying benchmark or asset so their performance is dependent on the performance of the components of the underlying index. Tax As with the majority of investments, ETFs will normally incur some form of taxation. Each investor should obtain independent tax advice. Costs All ETFs incur costs, whether internal costs (related to the product) or external costs (incurred in trading the product). Tracking difference The structure and cost of an ETF means it may not track its underlying exactly. There is no guarantee that an ETF will produce returns generated by an underlying index. Liquidity Risk Although the Units will be quoted on the ASX there is no guarantee that there will be a liquid market for the Units. Furthermore, in certain circumstances the ASX may suspend trading of the Units or delist a Fund. There are also certain circumstances where the Responsible Entity may limit, reject, scale or delay redemptions. Currency Risk The prices of the Index and its constituents will be quoted in US dollars whereas the net asset value of the Fund and the price at which the Units will be quoted on the ASX is calculated in Australian dollars. This means that an investor is exposed to changes in the exchange rate between the US dollar and the Australian Dollar. This is not an exhaustive list of risks in the relation to an investment in Units. Prospective investors should read the Product Disclosure Statement and consider the risks associated with an investment in Units and consider the specific and general risks of an investment in Units. Prospective investors should also consult with their financial adviser prior to making any investment.
