The estimated return from investment is 2.90% per annum with estimated expenses of 0.20% per annum and net return of 2.70% per annum. Should the Asset Management Company not be able to invest as stated due to market conditions or changes in taxes, the Asset Management Company may not redeem units at the aforementioned rate.

The Asset Management Company has the discretion to change the invested assets or the investment ratios when it is deemed that it is necessary and appropriate for the utmost benefit of the investors, without causing the risk of the invested assets to change significantly.

MSI2AI is suitable for investors who expect higher returns than deposits, can accept a lower return than stocks and are able to invest for a period of 3 years. Investors should study the information available to understand features of the product, conditions of the returns and the risks before making the decision to invest.
