As responsible entity, Legg Mason Asset Management Australia Limited holds Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) 240 827, which includes an authorisation to operate managed investment schemes.

In each financial year the full amount of taxable income available for distribution from the Fund is intended to be distributed to investors. You may elect to have distributions paid to you at your nominated bank account or reinvested in further units in the Fund. Distributions are generally paid at the following frequencies:

  • RARE Infrastructure Value Fund – Hedged – Quarterly
  • RARE Infrastructure Value Fund – Unhedged – Quarterly
  • RARE Emerging Markets Fund – Semi-Annually
  • RARE Infrastructure Income Fund – Quarterly

Yes, unit holders can participate in distribution reinvestment by indicating on their application form at the time they apply for the units in the Fund. Investors can change their preference at any time by posting or faxing their signed request to change to one of the following:

As the Funds are forward priced, the last day that a transaction can be received for processing (so as to be included in for the distribution for that period) is the Business Day prior to the end of the distribution period. For example, for an investment in a Fund that distributes quarterly that would mean the Business Day prior to 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December.

Legg Mason Asset Management Australia intends that the Funds will pay distribution proceeds by the 10th business day after the end of a distribution period. For example, for the RARE Infrastructure Value Funds and the RARE Infrastructure Income Fund, distributions are expected to be paid on the 10th business day of January, April, July and October. For the RARE Emerging Markets Fund distributions are expected to be paid on the 10th business day of January and July.
