Prohibition on the practices of “late trading” or “market timing”
The funds described apply a policy of subscriptions, conversion and redemptions by forward pricing. Practices such as “late trading” and “market timing” are not authorized and SYZ and the Fund reserves the right to refuse subscription and conversion orders from an investor who is suspected of practicing this type of behaviour  and, where applicable, to take the measures necessary in order to protect the Funds’ shareholders. The term “late trading” means the acceptance of a subscription, switching or redemption order received after the closure cut-off time scheduled for the acceptance of orders on the relevant transaction day and its execution at the price based on the net asset value applicable on that same day. The practice of “market timing” consists of a form of arbitrage by which an investor systematically subscribes to, redeems or converts shares of a fund within a short lapse of time, using the discrepancies between time zones or imperfections or failures in the systems for calculating the net asset value of the Fund. The practice of “market timing” can interfere with the management of investment portfolios and affect the performance of a fund. Subscription, conversion or redemption orders received after the closure cut-off time scheduled for the acceptance of orders on the relevant transaction day will be rejected.

Research costs
We have taken the decision to absorb the third-party research costs across all our internally-managed funds as of the 1st of January 2018. This decision will be applicable not only to internally managed funds that are subject to MiFID II regulations, but all internally-managed funds and portfolios. While the new MiFID II rules allow for investment managers to choose between passing research costs on to investors in a transparent manner or absorbing them, SYZ Asset Management has taken the decision to do the latter. Research has always been at the heart our investment process and we have taken steps to ensure that our investment teams will continue to receive the full breadth of research support they need to maintain our track record of delivering attractive risk-adjusted returns.
