A portfolio management tool
Markets go down as well as up. Instreet Link DS provides you with a useful tool for managing downside risk in your portfolio, as you have the potential to earn returns in down markets.

Investing in Instreet Link DS is quick and easy. Investors simply need to complete the Application Form attached to the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS). The investment is suitable for self managed superannuation funds, companies, trusts or individuals. The minimum investment is 2,500 Units.

Key terms
Instreet Link DS is an investment in a Deferred Purchase Agreement (Units). The performance of Instreet Link DS is linked to the decline in value of the Australian stock market as measured by the S&P/ASX 200 Price Return Index (S&P/ASX 200 Index)

The Units offer Investors the potential to benefit from a fall in the value of the S&P/ASX 200 Index below a certain level (the Strike Level) and provided the market does not rise above a certain level (the Barrier Level).

Reference index Term Strike Level Indicative Barrier Level1 Unit price
S&P ASX 200 Index Approximately 1 year 95% 115% $0.86
S&P ASX 200 Index Approximately 1 year 100% 115% $1.06

1 The Barrier Level will be set on the Commencement Date. The Barrier Level is expressed as a percentage of the Reference Index at the Commencement Date (subject to averaging across the three Issuance Observation Dates).

How the investment works - case study

John is looking to protect his Australian share portfolio through various market conditions. After speaking to his financial adviser and reading the PDS, John has decided to invest in Instreet Link DS.

John invests in 10,000 Units in Series 1 to obtain a notional exposure to the S&P/ASX 200 Index of $100,000. To obtain this notional exposure of $100,000, John pays one up front payment of $8,600. This will provide John with the potential to benefit from any decline in the Australian share market and may put him in a better position to benefit from any subsequent rebound2. John remains in the investment until the Maturity Date.

John’s potential return is based on the Reference Level at the Commencement Date, the Reference Level at the Maturity Date, the Strike Level and the Barrier Level. John is investing in Series 1, which has an indicative Barrier Level of 115% and a Strike Level of 95%.

In this example, over the term of the investment the S&P/ASX 200 Index falls as shown below:
Reference Index at Commencement Date 4,800
Reference Index at Maturity Date 3,8403
Reference Index Return -20% (3,840 / 4,800)

The Final Value of each Unit is equal to the Notional Exposure per Unit x (Strike Level – Reference Index Return).

Notional Exposure per Unit $10
Strike Level 95%
Reference Index Return 80% (100%-20%)
Final Value per Unit $1.50 (10 x (95%-80%))
Final Value at Maturity $15,000 ($1.50 x 10,000 Units)

This example demonstrates how John can receive a positive return from a fall in the Australian share market, helping him achieve his goal of managing risk within his portfolio.

2 This assumes that John’s Australian share portfolio remains fully invested.
This assumes that the Barrier Level is never reached or exceeded.
