In October 2016, the OC Concentrated Equity Fund became the OC Micro-Cap Fund. The Fund previously comprised three underlying investment strategies, one of which, the Emerging Leaders strategy, is now the primary underlying investment strategy of the OC Micro-Cap Fund. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The total return performance figures quoted are historical, calculated using end-of-month mid prices and do not allow for the effects of income tax or inflation. Total returns assume the reinvestment of all distributions. The performance is quoted net of all fees and expenses. The indices do not incur these costs. This information is provided for general comparative purposes. Positive returns, which the OC Micro-Cap Fund (the Fund) is designed to provide, are different regarding risk and investment profile to index returns. A performance fee of 20.5% is accrued daily on any excess performance (after deducting the management fee) above the performance benchmark within a performance period. Any accrued performance fee will become payable if the Fund’s return is positive at the end of the performance period. If the Fund’s return is negative, any performance fee accrual will continue to be carried forward. The performance benchmark is the return of the S&P/ASX Emerging Companies Accumulation Index. The inception date of the S&P/ASX Emerging Companies Accumulation Index is 31 December 2003.
