Russell Investments Australian Semi-Government Bond ETF

The Russell Investments Australian Semi-Government Bond ETF (the 'Fund') seeks to track the performance of the DBIQ 0-5 year Australian Semi-Government Bond Index ('the Index'), which comprises predominantly Australian semi-government fixed income securities. The fund aims to provide exposure to the largest and most liquid Australian state government bonds as identified by certain eligibility criteria including 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 30/11/2017

The DBIQ 0-5 year Australian Semi-Government Bond Index (the 'Index') is a fixed income index provided by Deutsche Bank AG, designed to provide investors with diversified and investable exposure to Australian semi-government fixed income securities. The Index specifically identifies securities issued by approved Australian state government agencies that have a minimum issuance outstanding of $1 billion based on face value to ensure sufficient liquidity. The fixed income securities are then ranked by term to maturity (TTM), and a maximum of two fixed income securities per issuer are selected based on the TTM closest to approximately 5 years, with a minimum TTM rule of 1 year. The securities are then equally weighted based on market value on the day of reconstitution.
