The Balmain AQUA Income Trust and the Balmain AQUA High Income Trust are
diversified income trusts, deriving income primarily from loans secured by
mortgages over properties used for commercial, industrial, retail, residential
(non consumer credit code) and social infrastructure purposes, as well as from
Mortgage Backed Securities.
The Balmain AQUA Income Trust invests primarily in loans secured by a registered
first mortgage investment and Mortgage Backed Securities via investment in the
Balmain AQUA Senior Debt Pool. The Balmain AQUA Income Fund will also hold some
cash and invest in Liquid Assets.
The Balmain AQUA High Income Trust invests primarily in loans secured by a mix
of registered first, second and subordinated mortgage investments and Mortgage
Backed Securities via investments in the Balmain AQUA Mezzanine Debt Pool and
the Balmain AQUA Construction Debt Pool. The Balmain AQUA High Income Trust will
also hold some cash and invest in Liquid Assets. From time to time, it may also
invest in the Balmain AQUA Senior Debt Pool.
These Trusts are managed by Balmain AQUA Pty Limited, a subsidiary of Balmain NB
Commercial Mortgages Limited, and a part of the Balmain Funds business.

With regards to the Balmain AQUA Income Trust and the Balmain AQUA High Income
Trust the total returns expressed as a percentage have been impacted by the need
to account for loss provisions in the Balmain AQUA Mezzanine Debt Pool ("MDP")
(which impacts the Balmain AQUA High Income Trust ("HIF") and in the Balmain
AQUA Senior Debt Pool ("SDP") (which impacts the Balmain AQUA Income Trust
("IF"), as reported in our letters to you dated 29 June 2009 and 6 July 2010.
The Balmain AQUA Trusts treat the provisions as capital items rather than
expense items - thus the impact is deducted from the unit price of the relevant
Pools and the Trusts. Had it been treated as an expense item, no distribution
returns would have been made until the loss provisions had been cleared. The
total returns noted below for IF and HIF have therefore been affected by the
provisions. Please note that the returns below for the 1, 3, 6 and 12 month
period are actual returns, not annualised. We now only use annualised returns
for periods of beyond one year.
Performance for the period to 30 June 2015
Please note that the returns for the 1, 3, 6 and 12 month period are actual returns, not annualised. Annualised returns are for periods beyond 12 months only.
Assumes distributions are reinvested and are net of any management fees. Investors should be aware that the performance is subject to volatility and that past performance is no guarantee of future returns and the repayment of capital is not guaranteed.
