1) Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted on a GST inclusive basis and net of any applicable Reduced Input Tax Credits.

2) The base fee is the fee we charge for managing the assets and overseeing the operations of the Fund, expressed as a percentage of the net asset value of the Fund. The Fund invests part of its assets in other funds which we manage. Base fees in those funds are either rebated or not charged, in respect of an investment by the Fund to avoid double counting of fees in respect of those underlying funds.

3) All other components of the management costs are based on the indirect costs and recoverable expenses incurred during the prior financial year ended 30 June.

4) Indirect costs are any amounts reflected in the value of the Fund's investments that we know or estimate will reduce the Fund's returns, other than the base fee, recoverable expenses and transactional and operational costs. The indirect costs represent the fees paid to external managers of the individually managed portfolios in the Maple-Brown Abbott International Equity Trust.

5) Under the Fund’s Constitution we are entitled to be reimbursed for authorised expenses incurred in managing and administering a Fund, however at present we have chosen not to be reimbursed for routine fund expenses including registry, custodian, accounting and legal expenses (excluding transaction costs) which are paid by us out of our base fee. Audit costs are paid, and any levy payable to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) may be paid, out of the Fund.

* Fees may be negotiated if you are a wholesale investor as defined in the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).
