AMP Capital Funds Management Limited, the responsible entity (RE) of the AMP Capital Australian Equity Opportunities Fund (‘Fund’), has made a decision to terminate the Fund with immediate effect. From 11 October 2017 investors will not be able to invest in or withdraw from the Fund.
Why is the Fund being terminated?
We made this decision in response to our research which indicates the changing needs of clients, who are increasingly looking for more cost-effective and differentiated products. We have taken the decision to move away from fundamental core Australian equity products and focus on areas where we believe there is long-term demand and we can offer capabilities that match our clients’ needs.
Questions or concerns
We realise this closure may be unexpected. Should you have any immediate questions or concerns about the above, please do not hesitate to contact our Client Services team on 1800 658 404 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Fund's risk level is based on the estimated number of negative annual returns for the Fund over any 20 year period and is not a complete assessment of the risks of investing in the Fund. For instance it does not detail what the size of a negative return could be or the potential for a positive return to be less than an investor may require to meet their objectives. Consequently, before choosing to invest or reinvest in the Fund, you should read the Fund's PDS and incorporated information and consider factors such as the likely investment return, the risks of investing and your investment time frame. Information about the methodology used for calculating the risk level is available here.
