Participants should note that the fund will be issued out of and settle in Euroclear Bank, an International Central Securities Depositary (ICSD), rather than a national CSD. As such, your attention is drawn to the key points below:

* Participants that already have Euroclear Bank settlement arrangement in place via EuroCCP NV need obtain no further clearing permissions - e.g. Participants that currently clear their BATS DR trades through EuroCCP NV

* Participants that do not have Euroclear Bank settlement arrangements in place with EuroCCP NV need to contact EuroCCP NV or their Clearing Member to set these up, as all ETFs traded on BATS are cleared through EuroCCP NV

Further information relating to trading securities that settle in a European ICSD can be found in the Trade Desk Notice issued on Wednesday 21st May 2014.

To identify the settlement location for internationally issued securities listed on BATS' RM, the BIC code of the ICSD (MGTCBEBE) will be published in the CSD column of BATS' symbol reference data file.
