Changes in the Rules of MF "DSK Stability - European equities"

The Financial Supervision Commission approved amendments to the Rules of MF "DSK Stability - European equities" (the Fund). The most common amendments relate to the following:

The duration of each fund’s investment cycle increases and will be approximately five (5) years, and it will again include two main periods, called conditional "open" period and "limited" period. The duration of the open period will be approximately one (1) month, and the duration of the "limited period" - approximately five (5) years. In order to ensure liquidity of investments of unit holders during the limited period there will be provided some "intermediate periods" that will apply lower fees charged to the investors for the sale and redemption of units compared to the fees in the rest of the "limited" period". Every limited period will include four (4) "intermediate" periods of approximately one (1) month duration. The beginning of the first "intermediate" period of investment’s cycle will be not later than twelve (12) months after the beginning of  the "limited" period" and the beginning of each subsequent "intermediate" period will be approximately twelve (12) months after the beginning of the previous "intermediate" period of the same "limited" period.
The investment strategy of the Fund aims to ensuring the protection of the increase in value of the unitholders’ investments as far as possible with the above objective - to increase the value of investments of the unitholders over protected size by generating the maximum possible investment return by taking a low to moderate risk. Protecting the increase value of the investment means the net asset value per unit, calculated on the last working day of the "limited" period, to be at least 101 (one hundred and one) percent of the net asset value per unit, calculated on the last day of  the "open" period. In order to ensure a capital gain, the Fund may invest part of its assets in derivative financial instruments that provide exposure to stock indices of European companies.

Fees for issuing and redemption of units during the "limited" period will be reduced and will be 5% and 10% of NAVU. In "intermediate" period the fee will be, respectively, 1% and 2% of NAVU.

The new Fund’s Rules are in force as of 1st February 2016 when began the first "open" period of the investment cycle of the Fund. It will continue until February 29, 2016, and as of 1st March 2016 starts the first "limited" period.
