Your rights as a Unitholder in the Fund are governed by the Constitution for the Fund and the law. They include the right to:
- receive distributions (where applicable);
- receive copies of accounts and other information for the Fund;
- attend and vote at Unitholder meetings;
- receive your share of distributions if the Fund is terminated;
- transfer Units to any other person, subject to the Responsible Entity’s right to refuse such a transfer; and
- pass Units to any surviving joint holder by will or otherwise to your estate.
You do not have the right to participate in the management or operation of the Fund.
The Constitution contains provisions designed to limit your liability to the amount invested in the Fund. However, you should be aware that the effectiveness of such a limitation is yet to be conclusively determined by the courts.
