AMP Capital Funds Management Limited, the responsible entity (RE) of the AMP Australian Equity Concentrated Fund (‘Fund’), has made a decision to terminate the Fund with immediate effect. From 11 October 2017 investors will not be able to invest in or withdraw from the Fund.
Why is the Fund being terminated?
We made this decision in response to our research which indicates the changing needs of clients, who are increasingly looking for more cost-effective and differentiated products. We have taken the decision to move away from fundamental core Australian equity products and focus on areas where we believe there is long-term demand and we can offer capabilities that match our clients’ needs.
Questions or concerns
We realise this closure may be unexpected. Should you have any immediate questions or concerns about the above, please do not hesitate to contact our Client Services team on 1800 658 404 or email us at email@example.com.
||To provide total returns (income and capital growth) after costs and before tax, above the Fund’s performance benchmark on a rolling 3 year basis.
||The Fund is actively managed which enables the investment team to act where they have a high conviction in the performance potential of selected companies. Considering companies for inclusion in the Fund’s portfolio involves identifying companies based on our assessment of selected companies on multiple key criteria including earnings outlook, company quality, quantitative factors, valuation and other criteria. In constructing a concentrated portfolio that typically holds between 25 and 35 securities, we implement a research driven process underpinned by our investment philosophy of earnings being a key driver of share prices, allowing the portfolio manager to identify investment opportunities across the market and for high conviction investment decisions to be expressed in a concentrated portfolio.

|Risk level (1 - 7)
The Fund's risk level is based on the estimated number of negative annual returns for the Fund over any 20 year period and is not a complete assessment of the risks of investing in the Fund. For instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than an investor may require to meet their objectives. Consequently, before choosing to invest or reinvest in the Fund, you should read the Fund's PDS and incorporated information and consider factors such as the likely investment return, the risks of investing and your investment time frame. Information about the methodology used for calculating the risk level is available here.
