Last Updated: 5 March 2013

Dutch Caribbean Securities Exchange welcomes Australian funds as newest listings

Willemstad – The DCSX recently approved the listing of the LM Australian Income Fund and the LM Managed Performance Fund on its exchange. The funds are managed by LM Investment Management Ltd (LM), a privately owned, Australian specialist fund manager which has operated within Australia's business and property sectors since 1998. LM distributes its suite of Australian investment solutions through an international network of licensed financial advisers, intermediaries, wholesale platforms, private banks, superannuation funds, corporate and institutional investment consultants spanning more than 70 countries. LM has developed international diversity in its distribution program and enjoys an established presence in the financial services markets throughout Australia, Hong Kong, Asia, the Middle East, the United Kingdom, Europe, North and South Africa, USA, Canada and New Zealand.

In its quest to expand the distribution of the funds to investors in Latin America and the Caribbean, LM has selected the DCSX as the preferred exchange to list its funds. The listing of the funds in a well regulated and exchange controlled environment will position LM to better market its funds in the region. The listing will also increase LM's visibility and create a heightened international public profile, allowing institutional investors to meet regulatory requirements by investing in exchange listed funds.

The LM funds are authorized by the financial regulators of Australia, New Zealand, Luxembourg, Singapore and Dublin, and provide investors with access to a variety of Australian investment sectors, including cash; guaranteed income and/or capital guaranteed; conservative income; enhanced income; and Australian indexed based investment solutions.

LM is registered within Australia, one of the most well regulated financial sectors in the world and monitored by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) as a Responsible Entity and Australian Financial Services Licensee. Specializing in professional and responsive financial services, LM is a highly regarded provider of property related financial services within Australia. LM's funds are available for Australian dollar and international currency investment. Details of the LM funds are available from LM's website www.LMaustralia.com or for more information please contact Michelle Ballard, Communications Manager at mballard@lmaustralia.com .

The listings of the LM Funds are the first by Listing Adviser Vistra. Vistra is a Global Independent provider of trust, fiduciary, corporate and fund services delivering personal and tailored solutions to international corporations, institutional investors and high net worth individuals and their families.

According to CEO of the DCSX, Rene Romer, the listing of the LM Funds is a true attestation to the success of the DCSX that is only entering its 3rd year of operation. With reputable names like Scotiabank Mutual Funds and now LM Funds, and increasingly considered by Latin American issuers as an attractive alternative for the listing of their securities, the DCSX continues to establish itself as an internationally recognized exchange.
