Tailored Investment Solutions Global Credit and Absolute Return Units Series 1

TIS Global Credit Series 1 PDS cover

A 3 year exposure to a basket of global funds

The objective of the Global Credit and Absolute Return Units Series 1 Units is to deliver positive returns to Investors over a 3 year period. The Units aim to achieve this by offering leveraged exposure to a diversified basket of global investment funds (the Reference Basket) that have a primary investment mandate to invest in global fixed income investments and/or are absolute return focused.

The Units provide Investors with notional exposure to the Reference Basket for a period of 3 years, and the right to purchase, at Maturity, using any gains made on the Units over the Investment Term, shares in a leading Australian company, Telstra Corporation.

Other features include:

Each Unit is a separate right to receive the Delivery Asset and certain related rights under a deferred purchase agreement as described in the PDS.

After Maturity, Investors will receive the Delivery Assets, unless they request for the Issuer to sell the Delivery Assets on their behalf and receive the Sale Monies (which includes a deduction for any Delivery Costs).

Summary of the key features are as follows

Notional Exposure Each Unit provides a Notional Exposure of $1.00 per Unit. This means that if you were to purchase 100,000 Units, which would have a total purchase price of $6,600 (plus any Adviser Fee as agreed with your Financial Adviser), your investment exposure to the Reference Basket for the purposes of calculating Coupons and Final Value would be $100,000. This enhanced level of exposure to the Reference Basket will magnify both the gains and losses of the Units.
Coupons The Units may pay two Coupons of up to 10% of the performance of the Reference Basket Value. The First Coupon is calculated at the end of the first year of the Investment Term and the Second Coupon is calculated at the end of the second year of the Investment Term. Please refer to the PDS for the Coupon calculation formula.
Final Value at Maturity The Final Value per Unit is determined by the movements in the Reference Basket over the investment term less any Coupons paid in the first and second year of the Investment Term in accordance with the following formula:
Final Value = 90% x [Max (0, (Notional Exposure x (Final Reference Basket Value/Initial Reference Basket Value – 1) – Gross First Coupon – Gross Second Coupon))]
The 90% in the above formula for Final Value has the effect of reducing the Final Value by the amount of the Performance Fee. The Performance Fee is 10% of the amount that would otherwise be payable.
Delivery Assets at Maturity On Maturity, it is intended that a parcel of ordinary shares in Telstra Corporation (ASX Code: TLS, website: www.telstra.com.au) (Delivery Asset), equal in value to the Final Value per Unit multiplied by the number of Units held by an Investor.
The performance of Units is not directly affected by the performance of the TLS shares up to the Maturity Date. However, after the Maturity Date, the value of the security will be determined by the price of the Delivery Asset as traded on the ASX.
Agency Sale Option After Maturity, the Delivery Assets are transferred to Investors or sold on their behalf if they request to use the Agency Sale Option.
Performance Fee The amount of each Coupon and the Final Value will each be reduced by an amount on account of a Performance Fee, which is retained by the Issuer. The amount of the Performance Fee on each Coupon will be 10% of the amount which would otherwise have been payable had the Performance Fee not been deducted. The Performance Fee on the Final Value will be 10% of the amount which would otherwise have been payable had the Performance Fee not been deducted.
Other fees and charges may apply. Please refer to the PDS.
SMSF Eligibility Yes
