Optimised Profit Lock-in Feature

Series 2 includes an Optimised Profit Lock-in Feature which is intended to lock-in future positive performance in the Strategy Value, assuming the Strategy Value is able to close above any of the Ladder Levels on a monthly closing basis. If this occurs, the Corresponding Locked Level will create a floor to the Performance Coupon payable at Maturity. This applies to the full leveraged investment amount subject to changes in the AUD/USD exchange rate less the deduction of a 10% Performance Fee.

Key risks include:

  • Your return (including any Coupons) is affected by the performance of the Reference Asset. There is no guarantee that the Reference Asset will perform well.
  • The Units have varying levels of exposure to the Reference Asset depending on volatility due to the variable Participation Rate. It operates by varying the exposure that the Units will have to the Reference Asset depending on the Realised Volatility of the Reference Asset and the Target Volatility. There is the risk that the Participation Rate could drop to significantly below 100% during the Investment Term in which case Investors will not gain the full benefits of an increase of the value of the Reference Asset.
  • Investors should note that there is a lag in measuring the Realised Volatility of the Reference Asset. This means that where there has been a period of high Realised Volatility, the Investor’s exposure to the Reference Asset will be low, regardless of whether the Reference Asset is performing positively or negatively.
  • There will be no Performance Coupon payable if no Corresponding Locked Level applies and the Strategy Value Performance is zero or negative on the Maturity Date.
  • The Performance Coupon is determined by reference to the Initial Strategy Value, Final Strategy Value and the application of any Corresponding Locked Level at Maturity as well as changes in the AUD/USD exchange rate. An increase in the AUD/USD exchange rate will decrease the Performance Coupon whilst a fall in the AUD/USD exchange rate will increase the Performance Coupon.
  • 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.
