    In December 2016, Senior Trust Retirement Village Listed Fund (Listed Fund) was listed on the NZX Main Board. The Listed Fund is the 4th offering that Senior Trust Management Limited (Manager) has brought to the market.

    The Senior Trust strategy has remained constant, and is based on the following key principles;

    Soundly-run, well located Retirement Villages and Aged Care Facilities provide the opportunity for investment that generates a regular return backed by solid assets.

    There are significant prospects for lending to retirement and aged care operators that provide a continuum of care for residents, which allow residents to remain in the same village as they age and their needs change over time.

    Experienced and skilled retirement and aged care operators who hold a substantial stake in their Retirement Village or Aged Care Facility, in our experience, provide the best prospects for both income returns and capital gains to provide improved security.

    The Senior Trust strategy is underpinned by;

    Strong growth in the sector provides for investment on favourable terms.

    Owner/operators bring a personal touch to the facility which many prospective residents find appealing and provides a marketing edge.

    Privately-held Retirement Villages can be more responsive to local demand and resident need.

    Ultimately the decision to lend is driven by whether the loan will:

    Over the investment timeframe, support the achievement of our targeted return to Unitholders.

    Allow for sustainable growth without over-extending financial and human resources.

    Maintain a risk profile which is acceptable to our directors. Risk categories which are assessed include liquidity and cash flow risk, management and operational risk and security risk.

    Senior Trust Management LimitedSenior Trust Management Limited (Manager) is the Funds manager. The Manager is licenced in accordance with the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 to manage the Listed Fund and the Senior Trust Retirement Village Fund.

    On 1 August 2015, long-standing directors John Jackson and Tracy Goodin resigned and a new board consisting of, Clive Jimmieson, Scott Lester and Joseph Van Wijk were appointed. The restructure reflected a determination to embrace the new regulatory environment and to prepare for the intended NZX Main Board listing.

    Messers Goodin and Jackson retained their directorships of Senior Trust Capital Limited. The Manager has appointed Senior Trust Capital to source lending opportunities for the Fund, and provide marketing and promotional services to the Fund under the terms of a management services agreement. Included amongst the lending opportunities is the Palm Grove village partnership in which a whole owned subsidiary of Senior Trust Capital limited STC Orewa Limited has an 80% partnership interest.

    In March 2016, Senior Trust Management Ltd was licensed under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 as the manager of the Senior Trust Managed Investment Funds. We have embraced the new regulatory regime as major step forward in building investor confidence in the investment market. As part of our emphasis on investor care, Staples Rodway was engaged to undertake an Operational and Compliance Risk Framework Review. The report concluded that we consider that the Company has a generally robust and comprehensive Framework and Plan. As a Manager, our commitment is to continually develop the compliance framework, as we see this as an important part of our obligation to protect our investors funds and achieve the high standards of governance required to meet the obligations required of a manager of a licensed Managed Investment Scheme.

  • The Fund invests by way of making secured loans to operators of Retirement Villages and Aged Care Facilities. The loans will generally be made to privately owned Retirement Villages and Aged Care Facilities which are seeking to refinance, expand existing operations or embark on the development of new facilities.

    The Fund is restricted to lending to a maximum, continuous loan to value ratio (LVR) of 60% of the assessed value of the security, with the assessment based on a mortgage valuation by an independent registered valuer (approved by the Manager) who assesses the market value of the assets as security for the loan.

    The Current lending Portfolio During the course of the year, the Listed Fund extended mortgage backed loan facilities to Whitby Lakes Village, Palm Grove Village and Quail Ridge Country Club.

    The Manager has continued a long association with Whitby Lakes Village. Members of the management team first became involved with the village in 2009 and the relationship has been a mutually beneficially throughout. The Listed Fund co-lends to Whitby Lakes Village by way of a first mortgage facility agreement, supported by the personal guarantees and corporate guarantees of various Whitby Lakes investing entities.

    Whitby Lakes first opened in 2002 and is a mature retirement village with an ever-increasing number of resales to support the sales of new apartments currently being constructed. Whitby Lakes Village is due for completion in 2018 and at that point will consist of 132 dwellings being a mix of 65 apartments, 67 villas and community facilities all of which are built to a high standard.

    Palm Grove Village is another well located retirement village with which the management team have had a long association dating back to 2010. Palm Grove Village is in the increasingly popular beach side suburb of Orewa which is becoming a preferred destination for Auckland retirees.

    Lending objectives and policies

    Senior Trust Capital has through 100% owned subsidiary acquired a substantial interest in Palm Grove and is proceeding to evolve significant development plans which will see the village grow from its current 14 dwellings to circa 72 villas and apartments.

    The Listed Fund is secured by way of a first mortgage over the various residential titles that have been acquired during the course of formulating development plans. The expansion will be centred on capturing the top end of the Auckland retiree market to maximise the potential offered by this premiere location.

    Quail Ridge Country Club first came to the attention of the management team in 2011. Quail Ridge has progressed to a stage where the village now meets the Listed Funds criteria for a first mortgage lending facility to fund the next stages of construction. Quail Ridge Country Club is attracting a strong interest for both local residents and also purchasers from Auckland and other areas. The village benefits from an attractive setting and has been positioned to achieve premium sales value which is endorsed by sale agreements signed at the date of this report.

    Further Prospects Negotiations are underway with a number of other retirement village operators. The directors of the Manager are confident that there is strong demand for the portfolios lending product which will continue to support the Listed Funds targeted distribution rate of 6% pa (pre-tax) whilst adhering to the investment principles that have evolved over decades of lending experience in the sector.

    The objective for next year is to continue to identify lending opportunities which adhere to our Statement of Investment Policies and Objectives and receive director approval post a rigorous due diligence process.

  • In 2014 the Manager completed a survey of its investors which revealed that 70% of investors were over the age of 70, and 75% of the total number of investors had been involved in investing in the retirement village and aged care sector since we first issued units in a portfolio.

    The results of this survey indicated that, estate planning is likely to be an area of importance for investors in our funds. The importance of estate planning is reinforced by the growing trend of inter-generational investment by families which is reflected in there being an increasing number of children, and in some instances grandchildren, investing in the Listed Fund.

    Meeting the needs of investors is at the forefront of our objectives. Delivering on this commitment includes facilitating the transfer or sale of units in the Listed Fund.

    Meeting the needs of investors is at the forefront of our objectives. Delivering on this commitment includes facilitating the transfer or sale of units.

    The Manager considered that it was desirable for the fund to be listed and for the units to be quoted on the NZX Main Board.

    In our view, the key advantages of a listing are as follows:

    a regulated orderly and efficient market mechanism for the sale or transfer of units;

    continuous disclosure of material information regarding the Listed Fund and robust governance to the benefit of all stakeholders;

    the liquidity associated with a listing would allow a longer period of investment in loans to retirement and aged care operators; and

    Potential growth in the value of the units as the market reacts to the income returns secured against growing retirement village assets.

    The listing on the NZX main board has proved to be of significant benefit to the unit holders. Since listing on 3 December 2015, a number of trades have been facilitated through the exchange on behalf of unit holders who have had a change of circumstance.

    Investor care

    Considerable time and effort has been expended in developing our ability to communicate with unit holders and prospective investors. The website has undergone significant upgrade and now has the ability to allow prospective unit holders the capacity to apply online for units in the Listed Fund.

    We have maintained a policy of sending out regular newsletters and even more frequent electronic mail items to keep unit holders and others well informed as to our activities. This combined with the regular updating of the website and the use of the internet for posting statutory information means that unit holders have excellent resources to keep up to date with the Listed Funds activities

    The granting of the Managed Investment Scheme licence to the Manager has been accompanied by a major strengthening of the Managers compliance and governance regime.

    We are proud of the fact that we have achieved the standards required and it reinforces our long-held approach of fully embracing the new regulatory regime and be an early mover to comply with the requirements of the Financial Markets Conduct Act.

    We are heartened by the increasing confidence that investors have in the regulatory regime and believe that the resources and time expended to achieve full compliance will be rewarded by an ability to meet the ever increasing demand for funds to keep up with the pace of expansion within the retirement village sector.

    The relationship with the exchange the NZX has been beneficial in terms of meeting both our unit holders needs and raising our awareness as to best governance practise. Achieving licensing was a challenging but positive process which has assisted in the enhancement of our compliance and operational processes and procedures.

  • The Fund operates exclusively within the retirement village sector and intends to capitalise on the booming demand for quality senior housing in New Zealand. Jones Lang LaSalle in its New Zealand Retirement Village Database Whitepaper (December 2015) stated that the potential demand for retirement village units between the period 2018 to 2043 equates to 11.4 villages per annum.

    The Manager believes that, to meet this target, privately owned village operators, will need to continue to deliver approximately 50% of the development pipeline. The Fund is focused on supporting experienced, skilled independent operators with proven capability with the funding they require to meet the growth in the retirement village sector.

    2016 sees the first of the post war baby boomers turn 70 and we believe this will be a significant turning point as the demand in the retirement village sector for additional capital accelerates.

    The demand in the aged care segment of the retirement village sector is even more dramatic. Deustche Bank has produced significant projections as to the pending shortfall in aged care facilities. This will create additional demand for funds. All three of the villages we are currently lending to have underway or are contemplating aged care facilities and we will actively seek involvement subject to appropriate due diligence.

    The Listed Fund maximum number of Units which may be issued is 45,000,000 Units. At the current Issue Price of $1 this equals $45m. No oversubscriptions will be accepted.

    We will be uncompromising in maintaining our current investment criteria. We believe there is an adequate level of well-located soundly run retirement villages and aged care centres to support the potential of the Listed Fund.

    The maintenance of the targeted 6% pa (pre-tax) income distribution rate, whilst not guaranteed, is of paramount importance to the Manager and all loans written will be set with the distribution rate firmly in mind. Loans are structured with the opportunity, if appropriate, to raise the return in the future should there be a reversal of the current trends towards lower interest rates.

    Future Directions

    The relationship with Link Management Services is working well and we have commenced discussions with Link to take over the registry services for our unlisted Fund, the Senior Trust Retirement Village Fund. This is part of a process to continually upgrade our operating systems to ensure we deliver higher standards of service to our deeply valued unit holders.

    Looking forward the Listed Fund has the requisite foundations to meet its commercial objectives which is to deliver the targeted distribution rate to our unitholders in accordance with the investment criteria set out in the Listed Funds Statement of Investment Policies and Objectives. The Directors are confident that our strategy of lending to carefully selected, well located and soundly run retirement villages, will enable us to meet our goals. Our proven approach of limiting lending to any one retirement village to a maximum of 60% of the valuation of the village as determined by an independent registered valuation will, we believe, continue to serve the best interests of our unitholders.

    The Listed Fund continues to accept subscriptions and we invite interested parties to investigate thoroughly the Senior Trust Retirement Village Listed Fund offer document which is intended to disclose clearly concisely and effectively details about the Listed Fund including the risks associated with investing in the Listed Fund. A copy of the offer document can be obtained by contacting Senior Trust Management Limited at PH 0800 609 600 or by visiting our website www.seniortrust.co.nz.

    2.3 Adoption of new and revised Standards and Interpretations

    The Fund adopted all mandatory new and amended standards and interpretations. None of the new and amended standards and interpretations had a material impact on the Funds assets and liabilities.

    2.4 Revenue Recognition

    Revenue is recognised and measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable to the extent it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Fund and the revenue can be reliably measured. The following specific recognition criteria must also be met before revenue is recognised.

    Interest Income

    Revenue is recognised as interest accrues using the effective interest method.

    2.5 Finance Expenses

    Finance expenses comprise interest expense on borrowings. Interest expense is recognised in profit or loss using the effective interest method.

    2.6 Income tax

    Income tax expense

    Tax expenses for the year comprises current and deferred tax recognised in the Statement of Profit or Loss and Other Comprehensive Income.

    Current tax is expected tax payable on the taxable income for the year, using the tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at balance date, and includes any adjustments to tax payable in respect of previous years.

    Deferred tax is provided in full using the liability method, providing for temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and their tax bases. Deferred tax is not accounted for if it arises from the initial recognition of assets or liabilities in a transaction other than a business combination, that affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss, and differences relating to investments in subsidiaries to the extent that they will probably not reversed in the foreseeable future.

    Other taxes

    The Fund is not registered for Goods and Services Tax (GST) and consequently all components of the financial statements are stated inclusive of GST where appropriate.

    2.7 Cash and cash equivalents

    Cash and cash equivalents in the Statement of Financial Position comprise cash at bank and on hand and short-term deposits with an original maturity date of three months or less that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.

    For the purposes of the statement of cash flows, cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and cash equivalents as defined above.

    2.8 Loans and Receivables

    Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Such assets are initially recognised at fair value plus directly attributable transaction costs and then subsequently carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method less impairment losses.

    2.9 Capital

    (a) Units are classified as equity. External costs, net of tax, directly attributable to the issue of new units deduct from theproceeds of the issue.

    (b) Distributions on units are recognised in equity in the period which they are approved by the manager.

    2.10 Trade and other payables

    Trade and other payables are carried at amortised cost and due to their short term nature they are not discounted. They represent liabilities for goods and services provided to the Fund prior to the end of the financial year that are unpaid and arise when the Fund becomes obliged to make future payment sin respect of the purchase of these goods and services. The amounts are unsecured and are usually paid within 30 days of recognition.

    2.11 Accounting Estimates

    The preparation of financial statements requires the use of management judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts and the application of policies. In particular, significant management judgements and estimates have been exercised when reporting on the credit risks and quality of loans, the Funds forecast liquidity and the Funds ability to continue operating as a going concern. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on the historical experiences of the Manager and various other factors that are believed to be reasonable. However, as with most account balances, their value is subject to variation with market fluctuations.

    Major estimates relates to impairment (refer to 2.13).

    2.12 New Accounting Standards and interpretations issued but not yet adopted.

    At the date of authorisation of these Financial Statements, certain new standards, amendments and interpretations to existing standards have been issued which were not yet effective at Balance Sheet date, and which the Fund has not early adopted. The Fund has assessed the relevance of all such new standards, interpretations and amendments and has determined that there would be no material impacts to the amounts recognised or disclosed in the financial statements. These include NZ IFRS 15 Revenue from Contracts with Customers, NZ IFRS 16 Leases, and NZ IFRS 9 Financial Instruments.

    2.13 Impaired Financial Assets and Past Due Financial Assets

    Impaired financial assets are those loans for which the Fund has evidence that it has incurred a loss, and will be unable to collect all principal and interest due according to the contractual terms of the loan.

    Past due financial assets are any assets, which have not been operated by the counterparty within its key terms but are not considered to be impaired by the Fund.

    A financial asset is assessed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any objective evidence that it is impaired. A financial asset is considered to be impaired if objective evidence indicated that one or more events have had a negative effect on the estimated future cash flows of that asset.

    An impaired loss in respect of a financial asset measured at amortised cost is calculated as the difference between its carrying amount, and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate.

    Individually significant assets are tested for impairment on an individual basis. The remaining financial assets are assessed collectively in groups that share similar credit risk characteristics.

    All impairment losses are recognised in the Statement of Comprehensive Income. An impairment loss is reversed if the reversal can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment loss was recognised. For financial assets measured at amortised cost the reversal is recognised in the Statement of Profit or Loss and Comprehensive Income.

    2.14 Segment Reporting

    The fund only operates as an investment fund portfolio and only in New Zealand. There are therefore no segment details to report. Refer to note 3 information about major customers.

    The Funds measurement methods are detailed in the accounting policies. Given the nature of the Funds financial assets and liabilities, the carrying value of financial instruments approximates the fair value of those assets and liabilities.

    The main risks arising from the Funds financial instruments are interest rate risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Manager uses different methods to measure and manage different types of risks to which it is exposed. Ageing analyses and monitoring of specific credit allowances are undertaken to manage credit risk, liquidity risk is monitored through the development of future rolling cash flow forecasts.

    The Manager reviews and agrees policies for managing each of these risks as summarised below.

    Primary responsibility for identification and control of financial risks rests with the Directors of the Manager. The Directors of the Manager review and agree policies for managing each of the risks identified below, credit allowances and future cash flow forecast projections.

    Credit risk

    Credit risk is the risk that the Fund will incur a loss because its customers failed to discharge their contractual obligations.

    Financial instruments that subject the Fund to credit risk consist primarily of cash, loans and trade and other receivables.

    The Manager performs credit evaluations on all borrowers requiring advances. The Manager requires collateral or other security to support loans and advances, as set out in the Funds prospectus. The directors of the Manager review all loans and any overdue loans are assessed on a regular basis.

    In particular, the Manager takes the following steps to manage this risk:

    Focusing on lending to operators with a track record of proven performance and who have a material stake in the entity.

    Undertaking extensive due diligence including assessing credit risk and the nature of any prior ranking securities.

    Restricting the term of loans to the Maturity Date of the Fund where practicable, and ensuring any loans comply with the Funds lending criteria.

    Closely monitoring the performance of the entity and loan repayments.

    Refinancing the term of the loan, or enforcing our loan, if necessary. Refinancing a loan carries its own risks in that the possibility of future default increases.

    LVR restriction.

    As required by the Trust Deed, all cash and cash equivalents are held with a New Zealand registered bank.

    Credit Quality per Class of Financial AssetsThe credit quality of financial assets is assessed by the Directors of the Manager. The table below shows the credit quality by class of financial asset.

    Exposures to credit risk are graded by an internal risk grade mechanism. High grade represents the strongest credit risk where a potential loss is least likely.

    Substandard grade represents the weakest credit risk where a potential loss is most likely. Standard grade represents the mid range credit risk where the directors believe a potential loss is unlikely. Past due loans are those that are past the due date for repayment. Individually impaired loans are those where some potential loss is likely.

    Collateral and Other Credit EnhancementsThe amount and type of collateral required depends on an assessment of the credit risk of the counterparty. Guidelines are implemented regarding the acceptability of types of collateral and valuation parameters.

    The main type of collateral obtained is charges over real estate properties.

    Management monitors the market value of collateral, request additional collateral in accordance with the underlying agreement, and monitors the market value of collateral obtained during its review of the adequacy of the allowance for impairment losses. An independent valuation sought by a registered valuer prior to entering into the loan and then on an annual basis thereafter.

    Risk concentrations of the Maximum Exposure to Credit RiskConcentrations of credit risk exist if a number of counterparties are involved in similar activities and have similar economic characteristics that would cause their ability to meet contractual obligations to be similarly affected by changes in economic or other conditions.

    The fund has concentration risk as its assets are concentrated in a small number of loans, in a specific sector of the retirement village and aged care industry.

    The Manager manages, limits and controls concentrations of credit risk, in particular, to individual retirement village and geographic location by monitoring on an ongoing basis and subject to annual or more frequent review, when considered necessary. However the Directors do not allocate asset investment to specific geographic areas but focus on the demographic demand within the catchment area for each retirement village.

    Liquidity Risk

    Liquidity risk is the risk that the Fund will encounter difficulty in raising funds to meet obligations from its financial liabilities.

    The Funds intention is to maintain sufficient funds to meet its commitments based on historical and forecasted cash flow requirements. Managements intention is to actively manage the lending and borrowing portfolios to ensure the net exposure to liquidity risk is minimised. The exposure is reviewed on an ongoing basis from daily procedures to monthly reporting as part of the Funds liquidity management process.

  • SENIOR TRUST RETIREMENT VILLAGE LISTED FUND

    Interest Rate RiskInterest rate risk is the risk that the fair values on future cash flows of an instrument will fluctuate due to changes in the market interest rates.

    The Fund is not exposed to interest rate risk in respect of Fund Deposits or Loans to borrowers because they are for fixed terms and are at fixed interest rates.

    The only financial instruments that expose the Fund to interest rate risk are cash and cash equivalents. Any change in the bank interest rate would appear to be minimal in the current market and would have no marked effect on profit or equity.

    Priority of Creditors Claims in the Event of the Company liquidating or Ceasing to Trade

    The Fund has not granted any person any security interest in any of its property so there would be no priority of creditors claims in the event of the Fund liquidating or ceasing to trade. All creditors would rank equally.

    Fair Values

    The estimated fair values of the Funds financial assets and liabilities are considered to be materially the same as their carrying amounts as disclosed in the Balance Sheet.

    19 Trustees FeesThe Trustees remuneration for carrying out the Trustees functions in relation to the Fund is an annual fee agreed from time to time between the Manager and the Trustee. Until agreed otherwise, the Trustees fee is $15,000 per annum. The Trustees fee accrues from day to day and is payable by the Trustee out of the assets of the Fund quarterly within 14 days of each Distribution Date. In addition, the Trustee is entitled to charge special fees for services of an unusual or onerous nature outside the Trustees regular services. There is no limit to the amount of special fees that may be charged.

    In regards to Special Fees, from 11 March 2016, the Manager was licensed under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMCA) to be the manager of the Senior Trust Retirement Village Listed Fund (Fund). Accordingly, the Fund transitioned to the FMCA on 11 March 2016. The Fund incurred $4,313 in respect to Trustees attendance in relation to the transition to the FMCA. The Fund also incurred $7,090 in respect to the Trustees attendance in relation to the review and documentation of the loan to Palm Grove Partnership.

    DistributionsThe first Distribution Date was the 31 March 2016, with the first distribution being paid to Unitholders on the 14 April 2016. The Distribution Dates will be 31 March, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December in each year until the Maturity Date, with distributions being paid within 14 days of each Distribution Date.

    Issue Price and Net Asset Value per UnitThe issue price per Units in the Senior Trust Retirement Village Listed Fund is currently $1.00. The net asset value per Unit as at 31 March 2016 was $1.00.

    WaiversThe structure of the Fund differs from that of a listed company, the type of listed entity the NZX Main Board Listing Rules (Rules) are designed to regulate. The Fund is not similar to most other issuers listed on the NZX Main Board and the Units have features that make less relevant many of the concerns that drive the Rules, including those governing voting and control rights, management costs, potentially dilutionary issues and other so-called agency risks. These features include the greater level of supervision and regulation provided by the Trust Deed and the Supervisor, the limited circumstances in which the Units carry a right to vote and the maximum size of the Fund.

    Accordingly, NZX has granted the Manager waivers from the following Rules: 3.1.1(a), 3.1.1(b), 3.3.3(a), 3.3.5 to 3.3.15, 3.4 to 3.6, section 4, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6.1 and 7.6.2, 9.2, 10.3.2, 10.4.1(b), 10.4.2 and 10.6.1(a). These waivers reflect the factors outlined above, the fact that Fund is undertaking an ongoing offer of Units as described in the registered prospectus dated 11 September 2015 (as amended on 27 November 2015 and 10 March 2016) and the nature of the business undertaken by the Fund. These waivers mean that the Fund operates in accordance with the requirements of the Trust Deed and as described in the registered prospectus and other offering documents instead of having to comply with these Rules.

    From 11 March 2016, the Manager was licensed under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMCA) to be the manager of the Senior Trust Retirement Village Listed Fund. Accordingly, the Fund transitioned to the FMCA on 11 March 2016. Any offers in the Fund made after that date are therefore being made under the FMCA. The Units in the Fund will be issued in reliance on the exclusion for offers of financial products of the same class as quoted financial products in Clause 19 of Schedule 1 of the FMCA. As a result of relying on that exclusion, the Manager is not required to issue a Product Disclosure Statement for the offer of Units in the Fund.

    NZX granted a waiver from the spread requirement under Rule 5.2.3 for a period of six months from the commencement of the Fund, so that the Fund could be quoted so long as the Units were held by at least 150 members of the public holding at least 25% of the securities issued, with each member of the public holding at least a minimum holding, rather than the 500 members of the public that would ordinarily be required. In June 2016, the NZX granted SRF a further waiver from NZX Main Board Listing Rule 5.2.3 in respect of the Units, for a further period of six months, so long as the Units were held by at least 300 Members of the Public, with each Member of the Public holding at least a Minimum Holding, rather than the 500 members of the public that would ordinarily be required. This means there may be a reduced number of buyers of Units on the NZX Main Board. The waiver is also granted on other conditions which require, among other things, the Fund to regularly report to NZX on its spread and that the nature of SRFs business and operations do not materially change from those described in the Offer Documents.

    NZX has granted approval under Rule 11.1.5 for the inclusion in the Trust Deed of provisions that restrict the issue, acquisition or transfer of Units to allow the Fund to comply with the PIE regime. As a consequence of these waivers and this approval the Fund will bear a non-standard designation on the NZX Main Board. A copy of NZXs decision, including the conditions of the waivers granted, can be obtained from www.nzx.com.

    Waivers For the purposes of Main Board/Debt Market Listing Rule (30 October 2013) 10.4.5(f) this section contains the waivers that have been granted and published by the NZX in relation to STRVLF or relied upon by STRVLF.

    The structure of the Fund differs from that of a listed company, the type of listed entity the NZX Main Board Listing Rules (Rules) are designed to regulate. The Fund is not similar to most other issuers listed on the NZSX Main Board and the Units have features that make less relevant many of the concerns that drive the Rules, including those governing voting and control rights, management costs, potentially dilutionary issues and other so-called agency risks. These features include the greater level of supervision and regulation provided by the Trust Deed and the Supervisor, the limited circumstances in which the Units carry a right to vote and the maximum size of the Fund.

    Accordingly, NZX has granted the Manager waivers from the following Rules: 3.1.1(a), 3.1.1(b), 3.3.3(a), 3.3.5 to 3.3.15, 3.4 to 3.6, section 4, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6.1 and 7.6.2, 9.2, 10.3.2, 10.4.1(b), 10.4.2 and 10.6.1(a). These waivers reflect the factors outlined above, the fact that Fund is undertaking an ongoing offer of Units as described in the registered prospectus dated 11 September 2015 (as amended on 27 November 2015 and 10 March 2016) and the nature of the business undertaken by the Fund. These waivers mean that the Fund operates in accordance with the requirements of the Trust Deed and as described in the registered prospectus and other offering documents instead of having to comply with these Rules.

    From 11 March 2016, the Manager was licensed under the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013 (FMCA) to be the manager of the Senior Trust Retirement Village Listed Fund. Accordingly, the Fund transitioned to the FMCA on 11 March 2016. Any offers in the Fund made after that date are therefore being made under the FMCA. The Units in the Fund will be issued in reliance on the exclusion for offers of financial products of the same class as quoted financial products in Clause 19 of Schedule 1 of the FMCA. As a result of relying on that exclusion, the Manager is not required to issue a Product Disclosure Statement for the offer of Units in the Fund.

    NZX granted a waiver from the spread requirement under Rule 5.2.3 for a period of six months from the commencement of the Fund, so that the Fund could be quoted so long as the Units were held by at least 150 members of the public holding at least 25% of the securities issued, with each member of the public holding at least a minimum holding, rather than the 500 members of the public that would ordinarily be required. In June 2016, the NZX granted SRF a further waiver from NZX Main Board Listing Rule 5.2.3 in respect of the Units, for a further period of six months, so long as the Units were held by at least 300 Members of the Public, with each Member of the Public holding at least a Minimum Holding, rather than the 500 members of the public that would ordinarily be required. This means there may be a reduced number of buyers of Units on the NZX Main Board. The waiver is also granted on other conditions which require, among other things, the Fund to regularly report to NZX on its spread and that the nature of SRFs business and operations do not materially change from those described in the Offer Documents.
