2The date the ETF was seeded prior to quotation on ASX.

The NAV is generally calculated daily after all markets are closed for that day based on the closing price of the securities on the relevant foreign stock exchange. The NAV is then converted to AUD based on the relevant London WM Reuters 4pm exchange rate. This means, due to Australia's time zone, that the NAV will generally not be updated until around 3pm next business day.
