Important notes

AMP Capital Fund Management Limited (ABN 15 159 557 721, AFSL 426 455) (the RE) is the responsible entity of the AMP Capital Equity Income Generator (ARSN 165 631 818) (Fund) and the issuer of the units in the Fund. This document has been prepared by AMP Capital Investors Limited (ABN 59 001 777 591, AFSL 232497) (AMP Capital), which has been appointed to provide Fund-related services to the RE. To invest in the Fund, investors will need to obtain the current Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) from AMP Capital. The PDS contains important information about investing in the Fund and it is important that investors read the PDS before making a decision about whether to acquire, or continue to hold or dispose of units in the Fund.
Neither the RE, AMP Capital, nor any other company in the AMP Group guarantees the repayment of capital or the performance of any product or any particular rate of return referred to in this presentation. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. While every care has been taken in the preparation of this document, neither the RE nor AMP Capital makes any representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of any statement in it including without limitation, any forecasts. This document has been prepared for the purpose of providing general information, without taking account of any particular investor’s objectives, financial situation or needs. Investors should, before making any investment decisions, consider the appropriateness of the information in this document, and seek professional advice, having regard to their objectives, financial situation and needs.
This document may contain projections, forecasts, targeted returns, illustrative returns, estimates, objectives, beliefs and similar information ("Forward Looking Information"). Forward Looking Information is provided for illustrative purposes only and is not intended to serve, and must not be relied upon as a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual circumstances are beyond the control of AMP Capital or the RE. Some important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any Forward Looking Information include changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, interest rate, political and legal conditions. Various considerations and risk factors related to an investment in the Fund are described in the PDS. There can be no assurance that any particular forward looking information will be realised. The performance of any investment or product may be materially different to the forward looking information. Neither the RE, AMP Capital, nor any other company in the AMP Group makes any representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of any statement in this fact sheet including any forecasts.
Estimated Distribution Yield Assumptions: The estimate is based on the amount of income we expect to receive into the Fund over the relevant 6 month period, based on the current investments held by the Fund, the level of dividends and franking credits expected to be earned from investments held in the Fund. If the companies whose securities we hold in the Fund do not pay the dividends or franking credits they have forecast, or if the Fund portfolio changes materially over the period, this may impact on our estimated distribution amount.
