Sequoia Dispersion – Series 7
The Units in US Dispersion – Series 7 offer investors the ability to gain exposure to the Dispersion of a Reference Basket of listed US Shares (each an “Underlying”) during the period from the Commencement Date to the Maturity Date (being a period of approximately 18 months) based on the full leveraged Investment Amount. Investment in the Units is by way of a 100% LVR limited recourse loan, with Investors only being required to pay an Application Fee and Prepaid Interest following a successful application for Units.
The Reference Basket consists of US listed Shares which have been characterised as having a large exposure to the “value” and “growth” investment style factors.
The Units provide investors with a potential uncapped Performance Coupon at Maturity based on the full leveraged investment amount depending on the performance of Dispersion of the Reference Basket during the Investment Term provided the realised level of Dispersion at Maturity is greater than the Hurdle.

|Dispersion||The dispersion of a basket of securities is typically measured by how much the return of each individual security in the basket differs, in absolute terms from the average return of the overall basket over a given period of time. Each of these return differentials are averaged and the greater the average, the higher the measure of dispersion
Refer to the Formulae & Calculations section of the PDS for a precise formula for calculating Dispersion.

Sequoia Dispersion – Series 7 Performance
|Date||Reference asset (Realized dispersion)||Indicative Unit value 1||Gross Performance 2|
1 – Unit Value: Investors please note this is a theoretical investment maturity value. This investment is designed to be held to maturity. Any investors seeking to redeem prior to maturity may receive an amount significantly different to the Indicative Unit Value stated
2 – Gross Performance only becomes positive once the reference asset performance level exceeds the hurdle level of 28%
Key risks include:
- Your return (including any Performance Coupon) is affected by the performance of the Dispersion of the Reference Basket (globally listed Shares) and whether this is greater than the Hurdle at Maturity. There is no guarantee that the Dispersion of the Reference Basket will perform well.
- There will be no Performance Coupon payable if the Dispersion of the Reference Basket is below the Hurdle at Maturity.
- There is no guarantee that the Units will generate returns in excess of the Prepaid Interest and Fees, during the Investment Term. Additionally, in the event of an Investor requested Issuer Buy-Back or an Early Maturity Event you will not receive a refund of your Prepaid Interest or Fees.
- Gains (and losses) may be magnified by the use of a 100% Loan. However, note that the Loan is a limited recourse Loan, so you will never be required to pay more than the Prepaid Interest Amount and Fees at Commencement.
- Investors are subject to counterparty credit risk with respect to the Issuer and the Hedge Counterparty; and
- the Units may mature early following an Early Maturity Event, including an Adjustment Event, Market Disruption Event or if the Issuer accepts your request for an Issuer Buy-Back. Please refer to Section 2 “Risks” of the Master PDS for more information.
