Russell Investments Australian Select Corporate Bond ETF

The Russell Investments Australian Select Corporate Bond ETF (the 'Fund') seeks to track the DBIQ 0-4 year Investment Grade Australian Corporate Bond Index ('the Index') which comprises predominantly investment-grade Australian corporate fixed income securities. The Fund aims to provide exposure to the largest and most liquid Australian corporate bonds, as identified by certain eligibility criteria including minimum credit rating, minimum issuance size and term to maturity. The Fund also aims to deliver diversified risk through equally weighting the securities on reconstitution to ensure that the exposure is not biased towards the largest borrowers.

Index Performance as of 30/09/2018

The DBIQ 0-4 year Investment Grade Australian Corporate Bond Index (the 'Index') is a fixed income index provided by Deutsche Bank AG and is designed to provide investors with an investable exposure to investment grade Australian corporate fixed income securities. The index identifies an initial universe of investment grade fixed income securities issued by an entity (i) whose ultimate parent is domiciled in Australia, (ii) which is, listed or has issued a class of its securities that are quoted (or in the case of a fully guaranteed entity, the parent is listed or has issued a class of its securities that are quoted) on the ASX or other Australian exchange which is a member of the World Federation of Exchanges, and (iii) which has a principal amount outstanding greater than $100 million and a term to maturity (TTM) of between a minimum of 1 year and approximately 4 years. Those which have an outstanding issuance size greater than the 25th percentile of the Issue size are identified and a maximum of ten fixed income securities with the longest term to maturity (TTM), are selected. The securities are then equally weighted based on market value on the day of reconstitution.
