  • Final Redemption Amount = AUD 100,000.00

Scenario 2 (Worst Scenario)

If the Customer requests an early withdrawal of the FLT in accordance with the early withdrawal requirements and the Bank agrees to the Customer's request, the Customer will receive an early withdrawal amount determined by the Bank.
