Application and Scope 3.1 These Terms of Business set out the conditions upon which Investec agrees to allow the Intermediary, and the manner in which the Intermediary will, Distribute Investec Products and supersede any previous Terms of Business issued to the Intermediary relating to Investec Products. 3.2 These Terms of Business are legally binding and (subject to any amendments or special terms, which Investec notifies to the Intermediary in writing in accordance with Clause 13), they apply to any dealings in Investec Products, which the Intermediary may carry out with or through Investec. At such time as the Intermediary begins to Distribute the Investec Products, the Intermediary is deemed to have read, understood and agreed to these Terms of Business. 3.3 Investec will not allow the Intermediary to Distribute the Investec Products if it ceases to be an authorised person or an exempt person under FSMA or relevant territory equivalent. 3.4 These Terms of Business constitute the entire agreement between the parties relating to the matters and transactions contemplated by them.

Application procedure and Acceptance 5.1 Upon completion of an Investec Product Application, the Intermediary will promptly provide the Investec Product Application to Investec for their review and acceptance. 5.2 Following receipt of an Investec Product Application, Investec will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify the Intermediary in the event of its acceptance of such Investec Product Application and consequent agreement to accept the relevant investor as an Investec Product Client. 5.3 Investec reserves the right in any circumstances and at its absolute discretion, not to accept the Investec Product Application from a Client or Potential Client. The Intermediary shall be informed promptly if this discretion is exercised.
4 6. Commission and Fees 6.1 The Intermediary may receive either commission paid by Investec or fees paid by the Client in relation to the sale of Investec Products, as specified in the applicable Investec Product Application. For amounts to be received by means of commission sub-clauses 6.2 to 6.13 below shall apply and for amounts to be received by means of fees sub-clauses 6.14 to 6.19 below shall apply. 6.2 All matters relating to the payment of commission by Investec to the Intermediary shall be governed by these Terms of Business as amended from time to time, together with the FSA Rules to the extent that such rules are applicable. 6.3 Investec will credit or pay commission in respect of each Investec Product sold to a Client. 6.4 Such commission will be payable by Investec to the Intermediary in accordance with the terms of the Investec Product and Investec may permit the Intermediary to elect the breakdown of that commission between commission to be paid at commencement of the relevant Investec Product for a Client ( initial commission ) and trail commission. 6.5 Investec may also credit or pay commission to the Intermediary on each Investec Product sold to a Client by another intermediary, where that other intermediary has relinquished its rights to the commission in respect of that sale to a Client in favour of the Intermediary and no other person has any valid claim to such commission. 6.6 In the event of any dispute arising between two or more Intermediaries in respect of any commission, Investec will have the absolute discretion to decide to whom such commission shall be payable. Investec s decision shall be final and no Intermediary will have any claim against Investec in relation to it. 6.7 Investec may, at its discretion, cease paying commission to the Intermediary: (a) if the Intermediary ceases to be authorised or exempted under FSMA or relevant territory equivalent; (b) if in Investec s opinion, the Intermediary ceases to have the appropriate permissions from the FSA or relevant territory equivalent to carry on the Business necessary to Distribute Investec Products and otherwise provided for hereunder; (c) in respect of any person for whom the Intermediary has ceased to be the agent; or (d) if the Intermediary shall die, become bankrupt, compound with or assign his estate or effects for the benefit of creditors, have his goods seized in execution or, where the Intermediary is a company or partnership, if it goes into liquidation or receivership, or is subject to an administration order. 6.8 Investec s statement of account (which may be contained in writing, disk, tape, direct on-line communication or any other method of communication agreed between Investec and the Intermediary) shall be the primary record of commission due to the Intermediary and shall be final and binding except in the case of manifest error. 6.9 Commission will be paid to the Intermediary at a frequency to be agreed between the Intermediary and Investec. Investec shall not make any payments to the Intermediary until the balance on the Intermediary s commission account exceeds 50 or other currency equivalent. Sums below this figure will be held on the Statement of Account and paid at the next opportunity when aggregate commission for that period exceeds 50 or other currency equivalent. Investec may vary the limit in respect of particular transactions at its sole discretion and shall notify the Intermediary of any such variation in accordance with sub-clause 13.1.
5 6.10 Where applicable, if a Client exercises any right of cancellation under COBS or if the relevant Investec Product is voided through non disclosure, no commission will be payable and any commission (including VAT where applicable) already paid by Investec in respect of the relevant transaction shall immediately be repaid. This will be balanced in a statement of account in accordance with sub-clause Investec and any Investec Group Company may at any time apply and set off any amounts owed by the Intermediary to Investec or any Investec Group Company against any amounts from time to time owed (by way of commission or otherwise) to the Intermediary by Investec or any Investec Group Company. It is intended that this sub-clause should be directly enforceable by any Investec Group Company as well as by Investec. This sub-clause will apply in relation to commission payable or reclaimed by Investec on behalf of the provider of an Investec Product in the same way as it applies to other amounts owed to or by Investec Where the Intermediary requests that Investec pay part or all of the commission payable to a third party (e.g. their Network), and Investec agrees to do this, the Intermediary shall remain liable for any refund of that commission that may become payable Investec reserve the right to charge the Intermediary interest on debts that have been outstanding for more than 12 weeks. The rate that will be applied is the Bank of England Base Rate plus 2%. This will be charged from week 13 onwards until such time as the debt has either been repaid by the Intermediary or offset against other commission payable in accordance with sub-clause All matters relating to fees as between Investec and the Intermediary shall be governed by these Terms of Business as amended from time to time, together with the FSA Rules to the extent that such rules are applicable The amount of any fees in relation to the sale of any Investec Products will be agreed between the Intermediary and the Client The fees shall be settled by either: payment made directly by the Client to the Intermediary; or deduction of an amount equal to the fees specified in the relevant Investec Product Application from the monies received by Investec from the relevant Client in relation to such Investec Product, such deducted amount shall be credited to the Intermediary in accordance with sub-clause 6.17 below; in each case at the option of the Client and as specified in the relevant Investec Product Application Investec shall use reasonable efforts to credit any fees due to the Intermediary pursuant to sub-clause within 10 business days of receiving the monies in relation to the relevant Investec Product Investec s statement of account (which may be contained in writing, disk, tape, direct on-line communication or any other method of communication agreed between Investec and the Intermediary) shall be the primary record of fees due to the Intermediary and shall be final and binding except in the case of manifest error Notwithstanding sub-clause 11.3, in no circumstances shall Investec have any liability or be responsible for any loss whatsoever in relation to any fees to be settled or settled pursuant to sub-clause , however nothing in this sub-clause 6.19 shall exclude any liability of Investec for any matter for which it would be illegal for Investec to exclude or attempt to exclude its liability or for fraud. 7.
