Definitions As used in this Agreement, the following terms shall have the following meanings:
Severability Any provision of this Agreement that is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in any jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
NOW, THEREFORE the parties hereto agree as follows:
Governing Law This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York.
Compensation The Advisor shall compensate the Sub-Advisor on the following basis for the services to be furnished hereunder.
Amendments (a) This Indenture may be amended from time to time by the Depositor and Trustee or their respective successors, without the consent of any of the Unitholders, (i) to cure any ambiguity or to correct or supplement any provision contained herein which may be defective or inconsistent with any other provision contained herein, (ii) to make such other provision in regard to matters or questions arising hereunder as shall not materially adversely affect the interests of the Unitholders or (iii) to make such amendments as may be necessary (a) for the Trust to continue to qualify as a regulated investment company for federal income tax purposes if the Trust has elected to be taxed as such under the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or (b) to prevent the Trust from being deemed an association taxable as a corporation for federal income tax purposes if the Trust has not elected to be taxed as a regulated investment company under the United States Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. This Indenture may not be amended, however, without the consent of all Unitholders then outstanding, so as (1) to permit, except in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof, the acquisition hereunder of any Securities other than those specified in the Schedules to the Trust Agreement or (2) to reduce the aforesaid percentage of Units the holders of which are required to consent to certain of such amendments. This Indenture may not be amended so as to reduce the interest in a Trust represented by Units without the consent of all affected Unitholders.
Interpretation Nothing herein contained shall be deemed to require the Trust or the Fund to take any action contrary to the Trust’s Declaration of Trust or Bylaws, or any applicable statutory or regulatory requirement to which it is subject or by which it is bound, or to relieve or deprive the Trust’s Board of Trustees of its responsibility for and control of the conduct of the affairs of the Trust or the Fund.
Termination This Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Closing:
Miscellaneous a. A Person is deemed to be a holder of Registrable Securities whenever such Person owns or is deemed to own of record such Registrable Securities. If the Company receives conflicting instructions, notices or elections from two or more Persons with respect to the same Registrable Securities, the Company shall act upon the basis of instructions, notice or election received from the registered owner of such Registrable Securities.

Nor shall the Sub-Advisor seek satisfaction of any such obligation from the Trustees or any individual Trustee.
