Accordingly, the PDS and AIB for the Fund will be updated as follows:

  • On page 19 of the PDS replace any references to the management costs from “1.66% pa” with “1.79% pa”.

  • On page 19 of the PDS replace any references to performance-related fees from “0.06% pa” with “0.20% pa”.

  • On page 20 of the PDS, the table set out under the heading of “Example of annual fees and costs for the Fund” is replaced by the following table:

The example above assumes that the $50,000 is invested for the entire year, the value of the investment is constant over the year and the additional $5,000 is invested at the end of the year. Therefore management costs are calculated using the $50,000 balance only.

And, for every $50,000 you have in the Fund you will be charged $1,190 each year.
EQUALS
Cost of Fund
  If you had an investment of $50,000 at the beginning of the year and put in an additional $5,000 during that year you would be charged fees of:
$1,1903
What it costs you will depend on the fees you negotiate.
  1. This amount is prescribed by legislation. The example assumes that the $50,000 is invested for the entire year, the value of the investment is constant over the year and the additional $5,000 is invested at the end of the year.
  2. The estimated performance fee is based on the performance fee paid in relation to AHL Strategies over the 12 months to 31 December 2013. The use of this estimate is not an indicator or guarantee of future performance. The actual performance fee and therefore the management costs will vary, depending on the actual return of AHL Strategies. A performance fee will not always be payable. Please refer to ‘Performance fee- Underlying Fund’ in section 7.3 of the Product Disclosure Statement for more information.
  3. Additional fees may apply. Please note this example does not capture all the fees and costs that may apply to you, such as the buy-sell spread.
