About Smartshares  
Smartshares is the pioneer of ETFs in New Zealand, launching the first ETF  
(TNZ - the NZ Top 10 Fund) in 1996. Smartshares is New Zealand's only issuer  
of ETFs listed on the NZX Main Board, with in excess of 16,000 unit holders  
and more than NZD $3.2 billion of funds under management. The Special  
Division of the New Zealand Markets Disciplinary Tribunal regulates  
Smartshares in a similar way to NZX Regulation's regulation of other listed  
issuers. Smartshares funds are listed on NZX so you can buy or sell them just  
like individual shares. The listed funds are designed to "track" (or, in some  
cases, outperform) an index. Each Smartshares ETF is designed to provide  
investors with similar returns to a direct investment in all the securities  
that make up the ETF. To learn more and obtain a copy of the Product
