I confirm that I have viewed a copy of the Product Disclosure Statement dated 29 September 2017 for the Whai Rawa Scheme and I have had an opportunity to read and understand the information contained in the Product Disclosure Statement.

I confirm that I am authorised to provide the personal details presented and I consent to my information being checked with the document issuer or official record holder for the purpose of confirming my identity.

I understand the manner in which fees, costs and contributions are applied to my Whai Rawa account and that fees, costs and contributions may change, or that new fees may be imposed from time to time.

I understand and acknowledge that an investment in the Whai Rawa Scheme is subject to risk, including the risk of loss of income or principal, and that no person involved in the administration and operation of Whai Rawa (including without limitation, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Whai Rawa Fund Limited, Trustees Executors Limited and Link Market Services Limited) guarantee the performance or returns of Whai Rawa.

I have read the “Statement of Personal Information Rights” as outlined in the Whai Rawa membership Application Guide and agree to the terms outlined in that section.

I understand that if I am opening an account for someone who is under 16 years of age and I am not a legal representative of that person, the legal representative of this person may, at any time, take over responsibility for this person’s account, should they wish to do so.

I confirm that all information provided in this form is true and correct and I agree to be bound by the terms of the Whai Rawa Scheme including as contained in the Product Disclosure Statement.

If I am signing this application as Account Holder on behalf of an under 16 beneficial member, I confirm that I am lawfully able to provide the declarations contained in this form on their behalf.

If I provide an email address now or in the future to Whai Rawa or Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu I consent to being sent an internet URL for access to electronic copies of Whai Rawa annual reports and other communications.

I understand that this scheme is only available to registered tribal members of Ngāi Tahu who are in New Zealand or Australia when they receive their offer to invest in Whai Rawa, or to whom it would otherwise be lawful to offer membership in the scheme.

I understand that if I am becoming a Provisional Member prior to becoming a Registered Tribal Individual with Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, that my membership may be terminated if I do not become a Registered Tribal Individual.

I consent to the receipt of both electronic messages and commercial electronic messages (as defined in the Unsolicited Messages Act 2007), which may also include a World Wide Web uniform resource locator, until such time as I advise Whai Rawa, to cease sending such messages.

I consent to my information being checked with the document issuer or official record holder.

I authorise Whai Rawa to verify my identity using electronic identity checking and to carryout due diligence on me to satisfy Whai Rawa’s obligations under the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Act 2013, or for members domiciled in Australia, the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006.
