Transcript: 2 5 6 1 4 NAVIGATOR UNIT TRUST 7 8 3 Unit Trusts or otherwise known as the Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) pools money from a large group of investors and invest them in a portfolio of assets The money is managed by a fund manager Unit trusts are considered to be medium to long term investments UNIT TRUST WHAT IS UNIT TRUST? WHY INVEST IN UNIT TRUST? WHY INVEST IN UNIT TRUST? A Invest in a diversified range of assets – risks will be spread over the assets in the fund. If any one of the asset in the fund is performing poorly, it will not have any significant impact on the fund as a whole. B Allows investing in a diversifed portfolio of assets with a smaller amount of money. Typically, it will cost more if one is to purchase each asset in the fund individually (mitigation of risk) C Unit Trusts VS ILPs: NAV vs BOP (Units will be deducted to pay for the mortality charges of the death benefit) D Provide assess to assets or markets that may be difficult to invest directly. These include special government bonds, very expensive equities, or stocks in certain foreign markets. NET ASSET VALUE (NAV) WHAT IS NET ASSET VALUE (NAV) NAV is defined as Net Asset Value whereby the total assets under fund - total liabilities under fund (expenses, payables, charges etc) NAV pricing is consolidated and published on a daily basis and is normally on a T + 2 basis. For example, today is Monday and the client was to sell his/her funds before 4pm today, the price will be published on Wed Unit Trusts are front end loaded so there is no bid offer spread (ILP) How do I know whether the fund is making money or losing money? HOW DOES THE $ GROW? Capital gain is when there is an increase in price of the units(you hold) as compared to the price paid for the fund initially CAPITAL GAIN CAPITAL GAIN Invest in fund by buying units in the fund based on the NAV. INVESTING IN FUND INVESTING IN FUND CALCULATE DIVIDENDS PAYOUT CALCULATE DIVIDENDS PAYOUT Some of the funds pay dividends periodically. Dividends are profits you receive from your share of ownership in a company, which may be paid out to you in cash or in kind. Dividends can be reinvested to get more units or can be cashed out.

Transcript: Hawkes Microbial Ecology Lab How does the diversity and composition of AMF communities change across a historic precipitation gradient in Texas? Why AMF? What we expect to see in our results is an abundance of species in wetter climates where it is less harsh for living and few specialized species in the dry climates. We have noticed a high number of taxa in our sample, much larger than other grassland studies. It is probable that this is due to sequencing bulk soils instead of individual plants. Dr. Heather McGrey Dr. Christina Hawkes Dr. Hofmann Mrs. Miller We want to look at both the species richness and species abundance. After we receive the DNA sequence data from the other sites we will be able to infer whether or not diversity and composition differs across the precipitation gradient. We have shown: That we can sequence and identify a diversity of AMF from bulk field soil. That Texas soils are relatively diverse compared to other temperate grassland systems. The Glomus genus represents a large portion of the AMF taxa. (Shubler and Walker 2010) Species Richness Soil Microbes have been until recently unstudied. This is because only 1% can be grown in a laboratory, the rest must live in the soil. With new technology, we can sequence samples from the field and process them with statistics to learn more about what is there. Species Abundance Texas Soils Arbuscular Mycorrhiza Fungi AMF spores grow in the root systems and the Rhizosphere (surrounding soil) of plants. AMF increases the nutrient (Phosphorus) uptake of a plant and the plant supplies it with carbon. We have collected plants and soil samples from across the Edward’s Plateau which is a natural precipitation gradient. The Edward's Plateau has very similar soil and vegetation characteristics, we can consider them constants. Our controlled variable is precipitation. Soil Microbes are the base of soil food webs, however we don't know much about the true diversity of them. We are looking at the relationships between the specialization of plants and fungi and precipitation. AMF is found in symbiosis with the grasses we are studying. It helps plants gather nutrients which is especially helpful in drought areas. Acknowledgments From the collected samples, we extract the DNA and send it off to be sequenced. Extracting isn't a simple process, it is a very long multi-step procedure. What we get back from the lab is long sequences from the soil and roots. With these DNA sequences we are able to run them through a program to determine the number of species as well as the proportions of the species present. Brigid Rhoden Conclusion Interpretation What is AMF? Species Abundance refers to how many of each particular species is found. Species Richness is the number of species represented in a ecological community. Complications Lab Work Results Background Unfortunately due to both growth patterns and DNA testing being slow, we don't have all of our results back yet. What we do have so far is: That our soil samples had a diversity of 105 unique OTUs (105 unique taxa). 93% of the taxa were from the AMF phylum Glomeromycota and 7% were previously unclassified fungal taxa. 97% of the Glomeromycota AMF taxa were of the genus Glomus. (Glomus is one of the most abundant AMF genera.) What we found:

College Life Financing Financing Tuition and dorms In-state tuition costs about $10,136 dollars per year while out of state tuition is composed of $35,766 dollars and both dorm costs are of $10,077 dollars per year and prices can variate depending on the amount of roomates. Scholarships Many scholarships are accepted such as the graduate school diversity mentoring fellowship, and the grad school diversity recruitment fellowship. Interesting facts -There is a myth that says if you see the albino squirrel at the day of a final then you will pass the final without a doubt. -UT owns the largest Texas flag in the world. -They have the hand sign of hook'em horns. Interesting facts About the school About the school Traditions Town Help Classes One of the most well known traditions is to perform the hook'em horns hand sign and sing "Eyes of Texas" before every game. The town around this campus is consisted of 51,000 students and with a very nice climate throughout the whole year Many help opportunitties are available for students to access such as the writing center and the sanger learning center The average class size of an UT classroom varies depending on the type of class you take. Here is a total average of them; -6% are 2-9 students -30% are 10-19 students -25% are 20-29 students -10% are 30-39 students -7% are 40-49 students -17% are 50-99 students -5% are composed of over a hundred students.
