Anticipated Returns as at 6 June 2018

For each investment term offered Sandhurst will set a rate of return (net of all fees and costs) which it will anticipate meeting over the duration of the investment, referred to as the Anticipated Return. Sandhurst calculates the Anticipated Return by careful analysis of the Fund’s investment income and by considering factors such as economic and market conditions.

Anticipated Returns are not guaranteed and there is a risk that the rate paid may be lower than expected. Any income earned by the Fund above the Anticipated Return is paid as a performance fee² to Sandhurst.

Early withdrawal may be available at Sandhurst’s discretion in special circumstances, although penalties may apply in the form of a reduced rate of return. From June 24, 2015 the reduced rate of return is 1.00% p.a. and is subject to change. Accessing your funds under the rainy day terms, does not result in a reduced rate of return.

Investments in this Fund are not deposits with, guaranteed by, or liabilities of the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Limited, or any other bank and are subject to normal investment risk including loss of some or all of the principal invested.

1 Sandhurst shall satisfy withdrawal requests as soon as practicable (generally on the same day, but not more than 12 months). However, withdrawal requests may be delayed or refused if in Sandhurst’s reasonable opinion it is in the best interests of investors as a whole to do so. Investors will only have limited rights to withdraw if the Fund does not satisfy the liquidity test in the Corporations Act. There is a risk that withdrawal proceeds will not be paid within a reasonable period after the initial investment term.
