Key Investor Information Documents (KIID) and 2016 past performance

Dear Shareholder

We are writing to notify you of a misstatement in how we presented past performance for the 2016 performance year in the KIIDs for each Fund of the Company.

This misstatement involved an overstatement of past performance for the calendar year of 2016 in the KIIDs published in February 2017 (and subsequently until 15 February 2018) for all of the Funds. The overstatement was caused by the use of ‘gross’ fund performance figures where ‘net’ fund performance should have been used, where ‘gross’ performance excludes ongoing Fund charges and ‘net’ performance includes these ongoing Fund charges. The nature of such discrepancies is such that they had no impact on the calculation and publication of the net asset values of the relevant Funds.

We have now corrected all of the Company's KIIDs to show the correct past performance figures for 2016. The updated KIIDs are available at

Please be assured that on identification of this error and its cause, we immediately implemented robust measures and enhanced controls to substantially mitigate any risk of recurrence.

Capitalised terms used in this letter shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the current Prospectus of the Company unless the context otherwise requires.

Further information in relation to the above may also be obtained from the legal entities mentioned under ‘Contact information’ below or by sending an email to

Neither the contents of the Company's website nor the contents of any other website accessible from hyperlinks on the Company's website is incorporated into, or forms part of, this announcement.

We thank you for your continuing support of the Company.

Yours sincerely
