RISKS Investors should be aware that there is no guarantee that the implementation of the investment objective or process will not result in losses to investors. The return of capital and the performance of the Fund are not guaranteed by any person or organisation, including the Fund Manager. Therefore, each investor should carefully consider the risks of investing and, where necessary, seek professional advice as to the suitability of investing in the Fund. Some risks of investing in the Fund include, but are not limited to: Interest Rate Risk The risk that the capital value or income of an investment may be adversely affected when interest rates rise or fall. The value and income of the Fund's assets can fluctuate in reaction to large changes in interest rates. Market Risk Generally, the investment return on a particular asset is correlated to the return on other assets from the same market, region or asset class. Market risk is impacted by broad factors such as interest rates, political environment, investor sentiment and significant external events (eg natural disasters). Liquidity Risk In normal market conditions, the Fund is expected to meet redemption requests that are accepted at least 3 months after the relevant Participation Shares are issued. However, if an investor or a group of investors in the Fund after that 3 months period seek to withdraw a substantial investment in the Fund (greater than 10% in individual request or 20% in cumulative redemptions in one month), then selling assets to meet those redemption requests may result in a detrimental impact on the price received for those assets. If this were to occur, the Fund may have insufficient funds to meet all requests. In certain circumstances, the Trustee has the power to suspend or amend the Fund's redemption procedures. Regulatory Risk The risk that the value or tax treatment of an investment in the Fund or its assets, or the effectiveness of the Fund's investment strategy, may be adversely affected by changes in government (including taxation) policies, regulations and laws, or changes in generally accepted accounting policies or valuation methods. Those changes could also make some investors consider the Fund to be a less attractive investment option than other investments, prompting greater than usual levels of redemptions, which could have adverse effects on the Fund. Credit Risk This risk relates to the Fund's exposure to movements in credit risk ratings of issuers of the Fund's assets. Credit risk ratings are an assessment of an issuer's ability to meet its financial obligations. If credit risk ratings change, this may reduce the value of the Fund's assets which may in turn reduce the overall value of the Fund.
