Risk Rating: Low risk classification3

All investments carry risk. Different investments carry different levels of risk, depending on the investment strategy and the underlying assets. Generally, the higher the potential return of an investment, the greater the risk. The risks of investing in this Fund include but are not limited to:

Construction and management of the Portfolio. The investment strategy to be used by the Manager includes inherent risks. These include, but are not limited to, the ability of the Manager to build and maintain a Portfolio that achieves the Fund’s investment objective, and which is consistent with the investment strategy and investment guidelines set out in this PDS and as permitted under the law.

Credit risk. Credit risk is the risk that one or more assets in the Portfolio may decline in price or fail to pay interest or principal when due because the credit counterparty or borrower experiences a decline in its financial status.

Investment sourcing. The success of the Fund depends on the ability of the Manager to identify suitable investment opportunities. The availability of investment opportunities will be subject to market conditions and other factors outside the control of the Manager.

More information on the risks of investing in the Fund is contained in the Product Disclosure Statement, which should be considered before deciding to invest in the Fund.
