5. How is the Fund structured and how does it operate?

The Fund is structured as a managed investment scheme (MIS). As an investor in this scheme, you buy units in the scheme based on the amount you invest and the unit price on the day you invest. The value of each unit in the Fund and correspondingly the value of an investor's investment is determined daily considering the performance of the underlying assets of the Fund less the Fund management fee.

Some of the benefits of investing in a managed investment scheme (MIS) include:

  • diversification of assets;
  • professional management of the MIS; and
  • access to investment opportunities that may not be available to individual investors.

This list is not exhaustive and you should consider the appropriateness of the product with regard to your objectives, financial situation and needs. Before acquiring the product you should obtain the Information Memorandum and consider the offer statement before making any decision about whether to acquire the product. You should consider seeking advice from an authorised financial adviser before making an investment decision.

6. How much does it cost to invest in the Fund?

The Fund charges an annual investment management fee of 0.58% p.a. (inclusive of GST).

There are no application or exit fees charged by the Fund. However, there is a transaction fee known as a buy/sell spread, which amounts to 0.10% when entering and 0.10% when exiting the Fund. It is important to note that the buy/sell spread is not a fee paid to the Fund but will affect your investment return and is reflected in the application (buy) and redemption (sell) unit prices.

The purpose of this transaction fee is to cover trading expenses such as brokerage fees when investments are bought or sold in the Fund related to applications or redemptions. These fees ensure that only the investors buying or selling units incur the expenses associated with buying or selling any assets at a Fund Level.

7. How often does the Fund distribute?

The Fund distributes income quarterly, corresponding to the quarters ending March, June, September, and December, provided there is distributable income available. Distribution payments occur in the month following a distribution date.

Investors in the Fund can choose to have their income paid to an Australian bank account held in the name of the account holder or to have this distribution reinvested into the Fund to purchase additional units. Investors may elect to have income distributed on the initial fund application form. However, this preference can be changed up to 7 days before a distribution date.

An annual tax statement is issued each August, which provides details of the components of the distribution needed to complete an annual tax return.

8. How do I withdraw part or all of my investment?

The Fund is open to withdrawals on a daily basis. It is possible to withdraw a portion of your investment, but you must maintain a minimum balance above $10,000. To initiate a withdrawal, simply complete the withdrawal form and send this form to the registry for processing ( You can find this form in the forms section of the Fund page.

Withdrawals will generally be paid to your nominated Bank Account within 5 Business Days.

Please be aware that there will be delays in the processing of withdrawals in the week following a distribution period. These delays will not impact the unit price received for a withdrawal, however they will increase the time in which an investor receives their withdrawal payment.

9. How do I complete tax for my investment in the Fund?

A tax statement is provided in August after the close of each financial year, which has all the information needed to complete your tax return in respect to any income received from the Fund. You will receive a tax statement for each fund you are invested in.

Investors also need to consider Capital Gains Tax (CGT) in periods they have sold or transferred their investments. The calculation of CGT from the sale or transfer of assets in the Fund will need to be calculated by a qualified accountant using information available from the statements you receive from the fund registry.
