Each of the performance fees is subject to a cap and each management agreement can be terminated on one month's notice. The base management fee rates range from 0.2% to 0.8% per annum and the performance fees range from nil to 20% per annum of the relevant outperformance. All the fees are payable quarterly in arrears. The performance fees are payable on a pro rata basis, after a minimum initial period of one year.

On a similar basis, the average performance fee is 6% of outperformance of the relevant benchmark, subject to capping of payments for any particular year.
