Summary of Amendments to SatrixNOW Terms and Conditions

1. Our SatrixNOW Terms and Conditions (“the Agreement”) have been amended. This notice contains a summary of the latest changes to the Agreement.

2. The definitions used in the explanations of the material amendments below are the same definitions used in the Agreement.

3. The changes were done mainly to provide for the addition of Unit Trusts to the platform. We added definitions of “ETF” and “ETF Security” so that it is clear when we refer to the exchange traded securities in the Agreement as opposed to the unlisted collective investment schemes, which are referred to as “Unit” or “Unit Trust”. Some provisions of the Agreement have now been qualified as only pertaining to Unit Trusts or ETFs.
