Investment management of the Trust We have appointed UBS Global Asset Management (Australia) Ltd (UBS) (ABN ) as the active investment manager of this Trust. UBS has given its consent to be named in the PDS but has not made any statement in the PDS. UBS has not withdrawn its consent before the date of this PDS. 2. How the OnePath Wholesale Australian Share Trust works Investments in the Trust may be made by: Investors (direct investors) who wish to invest directly in the Trust; and Investors (indirect investors) who wish to invest in, or via an Investor Directed Portfolio Service (IDPS), IDPS-like scheme, nominee or custody service (together referred to as a master trust or wrap service). We have consented to the use of this PDS by master trust or wrap services. The Trust is a registered managed investment scheme governed by a constitution (as well as the Corporations Act and other relevant laws). The Trust s constitution sets out the rights of members of the Trust and our main duties, powers and rights as responsible entity. The Trust s constitution also limits our liability in relation to the Trust. The Trust s constitution (including any amendments) has been lodged with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and is available free of charge by contacting Customer Services (or the provider of your master trust or wrap service (Service Operator) if you are an indirect investor). Like most managed investment schemes, the Trust is a unit trust where the value of the Trust is divided into units. Each unit has a unit price, which is generally calculated by us by reference to the value of the Trust on each business day, being any day other than a Saturday or Sunday or public holiday in Sydney on which trading banks in Sydney are open for business. As the value of the Trust s assets rises and falls, so too does the unit price, and therefore the value of your investment. Investing in and withdrawing from the Trust Direct investors The following table sets out the minimum transaction amounts applicable to direct investors in the Trust. Minimum transaction amounts* Amount Minimum initial investment $50,000 Minimum additional investment $10,000 Minimum withdrawal $10,000 Minimum balance $20,000 * We reserve the right to vary these minimum amounts. Subject to the minimum initial investment amount, you may invest in the Trust by completing the Application Form and returning it to us with a cheque for the amount of money you wish to invest. We may reject any application at our discretion. Subject to the minimum additional investment amount, you may also make additional investments in one of the following ways: Sending a cheque with a completed Additional Investment Form Using your financial institution s BPAY facility By electronic funds transfer. Registered to BPAY Pty Ltd ABN When you make an initial or additional investment, we will apply the unit price available on the day we receive your completed application (or the following business day if we receive your application after 12pm or on a day that is not a business day). You may also incur transaction costs. Please refer to Transaction cost factors (buy/sell spreads) in section 6 of this PDS for more information. Unless the Trust is suspended or is not liquid, you may withdraw some or all of your investment in the Trust by sending us a completed withdrawal request. Withdrawals are subject to the minimum withdrawal and minimum balance amounts. When you withdraw from the Trust, we will apply the unit price available on the day we receive your request (or the following business day if we receive your request after 12pm or on a day that is not a business day). You may also incur transaction costs. Please refer to Transaction cost factors (buy/sell spreads) section in section 6 of this PDS for more information. Withdrawal proceeds will generally be paid by us within five business days from the date we receive your request, however we may take longer to pay withdrawal proceeds. In certain circumstances, withdrawals from the Trust may be restricted, for instance when the Trust is suspended or is not liquid. 2
3 Indirect investors Any minimum transaction amounts are determined by your Service Operator. You will need to complete the relevant application or additional application form available from your Service Operator. Your Service Operator will make the investment in the Trust on your behalf and will become an investor in the Trust and therefore will acquire the rights and obligations of a unitholder of the Trust. Transaction costs may be incurred when your Service Operator acquires units on your behalf. Please refer to Transaction cost factors (buy/sell spreads) in section 6 of this PDS. To withdraw from the Trust, you will need to complete the relevant form available from your Service Operator who will in turn make the request on your behalf. Withdrawal requests will normally be paid to your Service Operator within a specified time determined by us and your Service Operator. Transaction costs may be incurred when your Service Operator withdraws from the Trust on your behalf. Please refer to Transaction cost factors (buy/sell spreads) in section 6 of this PDS. In certain circumstances, withdrawals from the Trust may be restricted, for instance when the Trust is suspended or is not liquid. Distributions The Trust generally distributes quarterly after the end of March, June, September and December each year. The amount (if any) distributed to each investor (including to your Service Operator) will be based on the number of units held at the end of each distribution period. Distributions may be comprised of income and/or capital and will normally be paid within 14 days after the end of a distribution period and must be paid within two months of that date. Any distribution amount will normally vary depending on factors like market conditions, asset class and investment performance. As a result of these factors, there may be times when distributions are not made. The distribution allocation reduces the Trust s assets. Accordingly, unit prices may fall after the end of the distribution period. Direct investors Any distributions will be made to you, and you can choose to have your distributions paid in cash or reinvested in the Trust. If you choose to have your income distributions reinvested, we will apply the unit price available on the next day following the end of the distribution period. Indirect investors Any distributions will be made to your Service Operator and your Service Operator may in turn pay distributions to you at times that may vary from the above. Please refer to section 2 How the OnePath Wholesale Trusts work in the Additional Information Guide for more information. 3.

Risks of managed investment schemes All investments carry risk and different strategies may carry different levels and types of risk, depending on the assets that make up the strategy. For instance, assets with the highest long-term returns may also carry the highest level of short-term risk. Investors should consider the level and type of risk involved with a particular investment and whether the potential returns justify those risks before investing. When considering the risks associated with your investment, it is important to keep the following in mind: the value of investments will vary the returns you receive from your investment will vary and future returns may be different to past returns returns are not guaranteed and you may lose some of your money your investment may be affected by changes in legislation in the future that may affect taxation, investment laws and regulations relating to managed investment schemes the level of risk you face will vary depending on a range of factors, including your age, investment timeframes, where other parts of your wealth are invested and your risk tolerance. It is not possible to predict the returns that will be achieved by the Trust. Investment returns are volatile and cannot be guaranteed and past performance is not indicative of future performance. You may lose money regardless of the investments made by the Trust. 3
4 The actual return that you receive will also be affected by factors such as the date on which you invest, the length of time you hold your investment and when you choose to withdraw. In general, the longer you hold your investment, the less likely it is that an overall loss will be incurred. Risks associated with investing in the Trust The significant risks associated with investing in the Trust may include: Market risk: Markets can be volatile. Market risk is the risk that your investment may lose value due to fluctuations in market prices. Inflation risk: Inflation is the general increase in consumer prices. Inflation risk is the risk that the purchasing power of your capital and/or interest income may decrease over time due to inflation. Business risk: The risk that the value of an individual business or entity to which the Trust has exposure may be negatively impacted due to factors such as poor management, lower consumer demand or declining market share. Political or social risk: The risk that changes in government policy, laws and regulations may adversely affect the Trust s value, and/or tax treatment or the Trust s ability to implement certain investment strategies. This also includes the risk that a political upheaval may adversely affect an investment to which the Trust has exposure (although this is more likely to occur in relation to overseas investments). Liquidity risk: Liquidity risk is the risk that an asset is unable to be realised in a timely manner and at a fair price, which could lead to the suspension, or delays in the processing, of withdrawals. Derivative risk: Derivatives may be used by the Trust to hedge or to gain economic exposures. The use of these instruments involves various risks, including market risk, liquidity risk and default risk which are all described in this section. Default risk: Issuers of the investments to which the Trust has exposure and other entities upon which the Trust s investments depend, may default on their obligations, for instance by failing to make a payment when it becomes due or by failing to return capital. Counterparties to the Trust, including derivatives counterparties, may default on their contractual obligations. Default on the part of these entities could result in financial loss to the Trust. Please refer to section 4 Risks of managed investment schemes in the Additional Information Guide for more information. 5. How we invest your money Warning: You should consider the likely investment return, the risk and your investment timeframe when choosing to invest in the Trust (including if you are an indirect investor investing through a master trust or wrap service). OnePath Wholesale Australian Share Trust Fund information Description The Trust is best suited for investors who seek a well diversified portfolio of securities listed on Australian Stock Exchanges. Investment objective The Trust aims to achieve returns (before fees, charges and taxes) that exceed the S&P ASX 300 Accumulation Index, over peiods of at least three to five years. Investment strategy The Trust invests predominantly in a diversified portfolio of Australian shares selected in accordance with a disciplined investment process. Size of Trust $63.57m (as at January 2015) Commencement date May 1993 Minimum time horizon 5 years Investor profile High Growth High growth investment trusts are more likely to suit investors seeking to maximise long-term returns and accept the possibility of greater volatility and short-term negative returns. Standard Risk Measure 1 Very low 2 Low 3 Low to medium 4 Medium 5 Medium to high 6 High High 7 Very high Please refer to section 5 How we invest your money in the Additional Information Guide for more information about the Standard Risk Measure. Asset allocation Asset class* Benchmark (%) Range (%) Australian shares Cash * The Trust may occasionally move outside of these ranges and in these circumstances we will seek to rebalance the Trust within a reasonable timeframe. The benchmark is the neutral allocation for each asset class. 4
5 The investment process UBS uses a price to intrinsic value process. UBS s price to intrinsic value investment philosophy pays great attention to investment fundamentals and expected cash flows when assessing investments. UBS uses disciplined, repeatable processes to apply the philosophy systematically. The commitment to this philosophy keeps the portfolio grounded in fundamentals and creates opportunities to outperform. The trust is an actively managed portfolio of securities listed on Australian Stock Exchanges or those nominated for listing. The Trust can hold a maximum of 5% in cash. The Trust investments The Trust invests in a diversified mix of domestic shares. In order to gain exposure to the investment markets, the Trust may invest directly or indirectly via other unlisted trusts. The Trust will not incur additional management, entry or exit fees for this type of investing. Derivatives The Trust may invest in derivatives, including futures, options, warrants and swaps to gain exposure to investment markets and to manage risks associated with market price, interest rate and currency fluctuations. Labour standards and environmental, social and ethical considerations We do not generally take into account labour standards or environmental, social and ethical considerations when we set the investment mandate for the Trust or when selecting active investment managers. We may however place restrictions on investing in prohibited countries listed in the ANZ Group economic and trade sanctions policy. Changing investments We may change the Trust s investments, strategies, the investment manager(s), asset allocation(s) and ranges (including by adding or removing asset classes) at any time without giving prior notice. We will notify you (or your Service Operator if you are in indirect investor) of any changes we consider to be material in accordance with our continuous disclosure obligations. Please refer to Continuous Disclosure in the Additional Information Guide for more information about our continuous disclosure obligations. 6. Fees and costs DID YOU KNOW? Small differences in both investment performance and fees and costs can have a substantial impact on your long term returns. For example, total annual fees and costs of 2% of your fund balance rather than 1%, could reduce your final return by up to 20% over a 30 year period (for example, reduce it from $100,000 to $80,000). You should consider whether features such as superior investment performance or the provision of better member services justify higher fees and costs. You may be able to negotiate to pay lower administration fees. Ask the fund or your financial adviser. TO FIND OUT MORE If you would like to find out more, or see the impact of the fees based on your own circumstances, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) website ( has a managed investment fee calculator to help you check out different fee options. This document shows fees and other costs that you may be charged. These fees and costs may be deducted from your money, the returns on your investment or from the Trust s assets as a whole. Taxes are set out in another part of this document. Warning: Additional fees may be paid by investors to a financial adviser if a financial adviser is consulted. Refer to the Statement of Advice provided by your financial adviser for details of these fees. Other fees and charges may also apply. Please refer to Additional explanation of fees and costs for further information. You should read all of the information about fees and costs, as it is important to understand their impact on your investment. ASIC also provides a calculator on its website that can be used to calculate the effect of fees and costs on account balances. The information in the following table can be used to compare costs between different simple managed investment schemes. Please refer to section 4 Risks of manged investment schemes in the Additional Information Guide for more information. 5

Management Fee 0.50% p.a. of the value of the Trust Expenses 0.40% ll p.a. of the value of the Trust. * You may also incur transaction costs when you invest in and withdraw from the Trust. Please refer to Transaction cost factors (buy/sell spreads) for more information. If you are an indirect investor, your Service Operator may also charge additional fees and costs. Please refer to Payments to your Service Operator for more information. This fee may be negotiated. Please refer to Differential fees for more information. This fee does not include expenses and other liabilities that are payable or reimbursable out of the Trust. Please refer to Expense recovery and indemnities in this PDS for more information. ll Other costs may be recovered in addition to the 0.40% p.a. expense recovery. Please refer to Expense recovery and indemnities in this section. All fees in the table above are shown inclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST) and net of any applicable Reduced Input Tax Credits (RITC) unless stated otherwise. Additional explanation of fees and costs Expense recovery and indemnities We are entitled to be reimbursed for expenses we incur in the proper performance of our duties as responsible entity. In addition to the management fee, we are entitled to recover certain day-today expenses out of the Trust. We may also recover certain other expenses out of the Trust, including but not limited to expenses incurred by us in relation to the institution and defence of legal proceedings, convening Trust members meetings and Trust asset transitions. Subject to the Corporations Act, we are also entitled to be indemnified out of Trust assets for claims and liabilities we incur. Differential fees We may negotiate and agree different fees as permitted by the Corporations Act and ASIC policy. For instance, we may agree to a reduced management fee for certain investors who qualify as wholesale investors (including your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor). There is no set manner for negotiating these fees. Please contact Customer Services (or your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor) for more information. Advice fees Any fees you agree to pay to your financial adviser for financial services they provide to you are separate to any fees we charge in respect of your investment in the Trust. Financial adviser payments Subject to the Corporations Act, we may make payments to dealer groups, financial advisers or other third parties (including to your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor) based on commercial arrangements we have with these parties. These payments may in some cases be to related entities. The types of payments include payments for educational support and practice development services and payments to third parties to distribute our products. If these payments are made, they are made by us and are not charged directly or indirectly to you. Transaction cost factors (buy/sell spreads) Transaction costs, including brokerage, stamp duty, settlement and other transaction expenses are incurred by the Trust when assets are acquired and disposed of. Where the acquisition or disposal of assets is related to an application or withdrawal from the Trust, these costs are recovered by what is called a buy/sell spread, which is based on an estimate of these costs. The buy/sell spread is retained by the Trust and is not paid to us. The buy/sell spread ensures that estimated transaction costs are borne by the investor who is applying for units in or withdrawing from the Trust and not by existing Trust investors. The buy and sell spreads are reflected in the unit price applied at the time units are acquired or disposed of and are additional costs borne directly by you (or indirectly through your master trust or wrap service if you are an indirect investor). As the costs of acquiring or disposing of Trust assets may change, the buy/sell spread may also change. The Trust s current buy spread is 0.15% and the current sell spread is 0.15%. Notice of any variations to the buy/sell spreads will not usually be provided. Up-to-date information on the current buy/sell spreads for the Trust is available at onepath.com.au > Personal > Performance & updates > Fund details, unit prices & performance history or by calling Customer Services. Investment management and performance fees of specialist investment managers The investment management fees of the specialist investment manager(s) are paid by us out of our management fees and are not an additional cost to investors. The specialist investment manager fees may include performance fees which may be payable by us if the specialist investment managers achieve certain performance targets. 6
7 Fee changes The constitution of the Trust provides that we can charge additional and higher fees as set out in the following table. If we decide to introduce such additional fees or increase fees we charge above their current levels, we will not seek your consent but we will give you (or your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor) 30 days prior notice. Type of fee Contribution Fee Management Fee* Maximum amount 8.0% of the issue price of the unit 0.5% p.a. of the value of the Trust * This does not include expenses and other liabilities that are payable or reimbursable out of the Trust. Payments to your Service Operator If you are an indirect investor, your Service Operator may also charge you a fee which will be described in the offer document the Service Operator gives you. Subject to meeting the requirements of the Corporations Act, we may make product access payments to your Service Operator for offering the Trust on its investment menu. These payments are not an additional cost to you and are paid from the management fee we receive. We may also rebate up to 100% of the management fee to your Service Operator so that the management fee we receive is less than the amount charged to the Trust. Details of the payments will be set out in the documents you receive from your Service Operator. Other fees and charges Other amounts, including standard bank charges, cheque dishonour fees, government taxes, duties and levies may also apply. Example of annual fees and costs for the OnePath Wholesale Australian Share Trust This table gives an example of how the fees and costs in this managed investment product can affect your investment over a one year period. You should use this table to compare this product with other managed investment products. EXAMPLE: OnePath Wholesale Australian Share Trust Contribution fees PLUS Management costs EQUALS Cost of fund BALANCE OF $50,000 WITH A CONTRIBUTION OF $5,000 DURING YEAR For every additional $5,000 you put in, you will be charged $0*. 0.90% p.a. And for every $50,000 you have in the Trust you will be charged $450 each year. If you had an investment of $50,000 at the beginning of the year and you put in an additional $5,000* during that year, you would be charged fees of $450. What it costs you will depend on the fees you negotiate with your fund or with your Service Operator or financial adviser. * You may incur transaction costs each time you invest in the Trust. Please refer to Transaction cost factors (buy/sell spreads), for more information. This fee may be negotiated. Please refer to Differential fees for more information. This fee does not include expenses and other liabilities that are payable or reimbursable out of the Trust. Please refer to Expense recovery and indemnities in this PDS for more information. If you are an indirect investor, your Service Operator may charge additional fees and costs. Please refer to Payments to your Service Operator for more information. We have assumed a constant value during the year. In addition, the calculation of the management costs in the example does not take into account the additional contribution of $5,000. Note: There is a calculator provided by ASIC on its MoneySmart website which can be used to calculate the effect of fees and costs on account balances. Go to Please refer to section 6 Fees and Costs in the Additional Information Guide for more information. 7. How managed investment schemes are taxed Warning: You should note that investing in a registered managed investment scheme is likely to have tax consequences. You are strongly advised to seek professional tax advice. We intend to distribute the Trust s net income to investors so that the Trust will not incur a liability for income tax. You should note that registered managed investment schemes do not pay tax on behalf of investors. Investors are assessed for tax on any income and capital gains generated by the registered managed investment scheme. The Trust s distributions may include different components (such as interest income, dividend income (franked and unfranked), imputation credits, net realised capital gains, other Australian income, foreign income, foreign tax offsets, tax-free amounts, tax-deferred amounts and return of capital amounts), each of which has different tax implications for you. In addition to the distributions, you may also be assessed on any capital gains made when you withdraw or transfer units in the Trust. In these circumstances, a capital gain arises when the withdrawal price exceeds your tax cost base. Depending on your individual circumstances, you may be entitled to a capital gains tax discount of up to 50%. The components of your distribution and capital gains on your Trust units will be disclosed on your end of financial year tax statement. If you are an indirect investor, your end of financial year tax statement will be provided by your Service Operator. The tax implications will depend on your individual circumstances. The material outlined in this section is for information purposes only and does not constitute tax advice. Before investing we recommend that you seek professional tax advice from an independent tax adviser specific to your individual circumstances. GST Investments in, transfers within and withdrawals from the Trust will not be subject to GST. Further, any distributions you receive from the Trust are not subject to GST. The fees and costs paid in respect of acquisitions made by the Trust (such as the management fee) are generally subject to GST. Where an acquisition is subject to GST, the Trust may be entitled to claim an RITC at the applicable rate. This means that the effective cost of an acquisition made by the Trust will be net of the applicable RITC. 7
8 Providing your Tax File Number (TFN) Direct investors You are not required to supply us with your TFN. However, if you do not provide your TFN and you do not have an exemption, we will deduct tax from your income distributions at the highest marginal tax rate, plus the Medicare levy. If you are eligible to claim an exemption you must specify the exemption being claimed on the Application Form, for example: Type 1: Age, disability support or service pension Type 2: Wife, widow, special needs pensions, carer or parenting (singles) payments Type 3: Company which is not required to lodge a tax return or a non-resident investor.

10 2. How the OnePath Wholesale Trusts work Investing in and withdrawing from a Trust When you make an application in a Trust, you acquire units in that Trust. If you are an indirect investor, you do not acquire units in a Trust. Instead, it is your Service Operator who acquires the units in the Trust on your behalf. Accordingly, you may not have the same rights as a direct investor in the relevant Trust. Each unit has a unit price that is equal to the value of all of the assets of the Trust less liabilities (including fees) and provisions, divided by the number of units on issue. As the value of the Trust s assets rises and falls, so too does the unit price, and therefore the value of your investment. The constitution for each Trust provides the basis upon which a Trust s assets are valued. Generally, assets are valued at their market value, although assets may be valued on a different basis in certain circumstances. In these circumstances we must have the methods in place which allow for the value to be independently verified. We have a unit pricing permitted discretions policy. It sets out how we will exercise discretions in relation to unit pricing. If we exercise a discretion that is not currently documented, or in a way that involves a departure from the documented policy that is current at the time of excercising the discretion, then we will prepare and record a written explanation as to how that discretion was exercised and why it was reasonable. You can obtain a copy of the current unit pricing permitted discretions policy free of charge by contacting Customer Services. Application money is placed in an interest-bearing bank account until we process your application (or your Service Operator s application if you are an indirect investor). Where processing is delayed, any interest earned on the account during this period will be retained by us and used to meet bank fees and other bank administrative costs we incur in operating the bank account. Generally, you (or your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor) may make a withdrawal request at any time. If you are a direct investor and your request would leave a holding worth less than the minimum balance, then we may treat the request as applying to all of the units held by you. Monitoring unit prices We have processes in place to check the accuracy of unit prices. Sometimes unit prices may be found to be incorrect because of errors made in determining one or more components of the unit price. If you transacted on this unit price, your account may require a correction. We will provide compensation to investors where the error causes a variance in the unit price which is greater than our predetermined threshold. The threshold varies depending on the asset class and is currently set at between 0.05% for cash and 0.30% for equities. The threshold is subject to change at our discretion. Where the compensation amount is less than an amount determined by us (currently $20) and the investor entitled to the compensation has fully withdrawn from the Trust, the compensation will be contributed into the relevant Trust for the benefit of all investors rather than paid to the exited investor. Suspensions and when a Trust becomes not liquid We have varying discretions to suspend withdrawals or the calculation of withdrawal prices and to delay the payment of withdrawal proceeds in certain circumstances and for specific periods ranging from 14 days to an indefinite period, depending on the particular Trust s constitution. The circumstances during which we may suspend withdrawals or the calculation of withdrawal prices or the payment of withdrawal proceeds include (but are not limited to): where we are unable or it is impracticable for us to determine the value of a Trust because of certain events, including because of closure of, or trading restrictions on, stock or securities exchanges, an emergency or other state of affairs or on declaration of a moratorium in a country where the Trust invests where we believe that it would be in the best interests or the Trust s members to suspend withdrawals; or as permitted by relevant law. Certain Trust constitutions provide that we need only process your withdrawal request (or the request of your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor) if we have specifically determined to accept that request, but we are not required to accept the request. We do not generally exercise that discretion and will usually process a withdrawal request unless the Trust is suspended or becomes not liquid or if we believe that exercising discretion is in the best interests of unit holders of the relevant Trust as a whole. We will notify you (or your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor) of any decision to suspend a Trust. In the rare event that the Trust becomes not liquid (as that term is defined in the Corporations Act), you (or your Service Operator if you are an indirect investor) may only withdraw from that Trust if we make a withdrawal offer in accordance with the procedures set out in the Corporations Act. We are not required to make such an offer. If you are an indirect investor, any offer to withdraw will be made to your Service Operator. 2

Risks of managed investment schemes Risk of Swaps The following Trusts have exposure to alternative assets: OnePath Wholesale Balanced Trust OnePath Wholesale Capital Stable Trust OnePath Wholesale High Growth Trust OnePath Wholesale Managed Growth Trust These Trusts achieve alternative asset exposure by investing into underlying total return swap arrangements (Swaps) available through one or more trusts for which we act as trustee. The Swaps are a derivative contract where we make a lumpsum payment to another person (in this case the Swap counterparty) in return for the Swap counterparty paying the investment return on an underlying basket or portfolio of alternative assets. The Swaps are described as fully funded total return swaps because we pay an upfront amount to the Swap counterparty. In return, the Swap counterparty makes payments that reflect the returns (if any) on the alternative assets referenced by the Swaps. The Swaps are complex financial products entered into with a single counterparty, which, like us, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the ANZ Group. As well as the risks described in the relevant PDS, a Trust s exposure to alternative assets via the Swaps involves the following risks: Liquidity risk this is the risk that the Swap counterparty may not be able to meet withdrawal requests we make from time to time under the Swap. The underlying assets will typically have different pricing and withdrawal cycles (for example, daily, monthly, quarterly or even longer periods) and this may impact the Swap counterparty s ability to access liquid funds when required. To minimise this risk the Swap counterparty will select liquidity strategies or put in place restrictions to minimise any possible illiquidity. This information may not be up to date or may be based on estimated (rather than actual) valuation data. Where possible, we will enter into arrangements with underlying fund managers to aid the timely delivery of accurate pricing information. Default risk this is the risk that the Swap counterparty is unable to repay the capital in the investment or meet its contractual obligations under the Swaps. To manage any risk that it becomes unable to meet its payment and other obligations under the Swaps, the Swap counterparty will physically invest in a portfolio comprising all or some of the alternative assets that are referenced by counterparty will physically invest in the basket or portfolio of alternative assets referenced by the Swaps in order to manage the risk that it becomes unable to meet its payment obligations under the Swaps. In addition, we have entered into security arrangements with the Swap counterparty to address the risk of default by the Swap counterparty. Fund risk this is the risk that one of the alternative assets referenced by the Swaps is unable to meet its obligations. The underlying assets have been selected in accordance with stringent investment requirements, such that in the event that one strategy (or underlying investment product) fails there is sufficient diversification to help reduce the overall volatility of the portfolio. Manager risk this is the risk that an underlying alternative investment manager may fail to meet its investment objectives, resulting in lower than expected results for a portfolio. This risk is mitigated by diversifying across a range of underlying alternative investment managers. Currency risk some of the alternative assets referenced by the Swaps have non-australian dollar base currencies, which means that the returns under the Swaps can be impacted by adverse currency movements when the returns are converted to Australian dollars. A currency hedging strategy can minimise the downside of adverse currency movements, but can also mean that favourable currency movements are not passed through to the relevant Trust. Currency risk can also arise when converting one currency for another. In particular there is a risk that the Swap counterparty to a foreign exchange contract may not perform its obligations. We mitigate this risk by ensuring that we enter into foreign exchange contracts with reputable and experienced counterparties. Valuation risk related to liquidity risk is the risk that the withdrawal prices for alternative assets are not always up to date. Accurate withdrawal prices are typically only provided for the dates on which withdrawals are permitted from the underlying assets. Estimated prices are sometimes (but not always) provided by investment managers on an interim basis. When calculating unit prices, we will use the most recent pricing information provided by the underlying investment managers. 3
