  • 4. Is there a dilution levy?

    There is a dilution levy, in line with standard industry practice. This could be applied if considered
    necessary to reduce trading costs where they may disadvantage existing shareholders, and to preserve
    the value of the fund’s underlying assets. GAM does not apply the dilution levy systematically and we
    expect this would be infrequently applied, purely on a case-by-case basis.
    Where a fund buys or sells underlying investments in response to a request for the issue or redemption of
    Shares, it will generally incur a cost, made up of dealing costs and any spread between the bid and offer
    prices of the investments concerned, which is not reflected in the issue or redemption price paid by or to
    the Shareholder. With a view to reducing this cost (which, if it is material, disadvantages existing
    shareholders of the fund) and in order to preserve the value of the underlying assets of the relevant fund,
    where disclosed in the relevant Supplement, the Directors are entitled to require payment of a dilution
    levy, to be added to or deducted from the Net Asset Value per Share as appropriate. The Manager will
    normally charge a dilution levy of up to 1%. of the Net Asset Value per Share in the event of receipt for
    processing of net subscription or net redemption requests (including subscriptions and/or redemptions
    which would be effected as a result of conversions from one fund into another fund). The need to charge a
    dilution levy will depend on the volume of purchases, conversions or redemptions of Shares on any given
    Dealing Day, and this will be evaluated by the Manager without prior notification to the relevant
    Shareholder. Please refer to the funds’ prospectuses for further details.

  • 5. Is there a “gate” and how is it computed?

    The directors are entitled to limit the number of shares of a fund redeemed on any Dealing Day to 10% of
    the total number of shares of that fund in issue. In this event, the limitation will apply pro rata so that all
    shareholders wishing to have their shares of that fund redeemed on that Dealing Day will realise the same
    proportion of such shares for which a redemption request has been accepted by the manager and any
    shares not redeemed, but which would otherwise have been redeemed, will be carried forward to be
    redeemed on the next Dealing Day. If requests for the redemption of shares are so carried forward, the
    directors will inform the shareholders affected.
