Changes to disclosures in the Product Disclosure Statement of Wrap Essentials Investment Funds - 1 July 2014

About this update
This update outlines the changes in respect of the following effective from 1 July 2014:

Amendments to the ‘Fees and other costs’ section

i) The Consumer Advisory Warning, on page 70 of the PDS, is deleted and replaced with the following:

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 account 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 the 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 circumstances,
the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (‘ASIC’) website (www.moneysmart.gov.au)
has a managed investment fee calculator to help you check out the different fee options.

 ii) The terminology in the table outlining the fees when your money moves in or out of the Investment Option, on page 70 of the PDS, has changed. The ‘Termination fee’ is now known as an ‘Exit fee’. 

Amendments to the ‘Taxation’ section

The following new paragraph is inserted after the ‘Non residents of Australia’ in the ‘Taxation’ section on page 81 of the PDS:

Our Reporting Obligations

We are required to identify certain US persons in order to meet account information reporting requirements under local and international laws.

If you or (where you are applying on behalf of an entity) the entity and/or any office bearer* of the entity and/or any individual who holds an interest in the entity of more than 25% (a Controlling Person) are a US citizen or US tax resident, you must telephone 1300 725 863 at the time of completing the application.  When you contact us you will be asked to provide additional information about your US tax status and/or the US tax status of the entity and/or any Controlling Person which will constitute certification of US tax status for the purposes of the application. 

Unless you notify us that you or (where you are applying on behalf of an entity) the entity and/or any Controlling Person are a US citizen or US tax resident as specified above, by completing the application you certify that you or (where you are applying on behalf of an entity) the entity and/or any Controlling Person are not a US citizen or US tax resident.  

If at any time after account opening, information in our possession suggests that you, the entity and/or any Controlling Person may be a US citizen or US tax resident, you may be contacted to provide further information on your US tax status and/or the US tax status of the entity and/or any Controlling Person.  Failure to respond may lead to certain reporting requirements applying to the account.

*Director of a company, partner in a partnership, trustee of a trust, chairman, secretary or treasurer of an association or co-operative

Changes to estimated performance fees

The ‘Performance fee’ estimate, in the ‘Further information on management costs and buy-sell spread’ table on page 78 and 79 of the PDS, is updated for the following Investment Options:

Investment option name Performance fee (% pa)
Advance High Growth Multi-Blend 0.03%7
BT Multi-manager High Growth Fund 0.03%7
Advance Growth Multi-Blend 0.02%7
BT Multi-manager Growth Fund 0.02%7
Advance Balanced Multi-Blend 0.02%7
BT Multi-manager Balanced Fund 0.02%7
Advance Moderate Multi-Blend 0.01%7
BT Multi-manager Conservative Fund 0.01%7
Advance Defensive Multi-Blend 0.01%7

7 The performance fee included in management costs in the table is an estimate only based on the performance fees paid over the 12 months to 31 December 2013. This performance fee estimate is not a representation of likely future performance. The actual performance fee and therefore the total management cost will depend on the performance of the relevant investment managers and is likely to vary from this estimate.
