Change of name for Goldman Sachs (Wholesale) Global Small Companies option

The Goldman Sachs Asset Management Australia Pty Ltd (Wholesale) Global Small Companies option was renamed FirstChoice (Wholesale) Global Small Companies on 10 March 2016.

Goldman Sachs has managed the option but delegated investment management to US-based Wellington Management Company, LLP (“Wellington”) since 2004.

Goldman Sachs recently announced their intention to replace Wellington as the investment manager for their own wholesale fund.

We have decided to retain Wellington as the investment manager for the FirstChoice mandate and rename the option.

There are no changes to the investment objective or investment strategy and the management cost remains the same.

There’s nothing you need to do. However, if there is anything you would like to discuss, or you require further information, please contact your financial adviser or call us on 13 13 36, Monday to Friday, 8am to 7pm Sydney time.
