Foreign Securities Depositories Except as may otherwise be agreed upon in writing by the Custodian and the Fund, assets of the Fund shall be maintained in foreign securities depositories only through arrangements implemented by the foreign banking institutions serving as sub-custodians pursuant to the terms hereof. Where possible, such arrangements shall include entry into agreements containing the provisions set forth in Section 3.5 hereof.
Deposit of Fund Assets in U.S. Securities Systems The Custodian may deposit and/or maintain securities owned by a Portfolio in a U.S. Securities System in compliance with the conditions of Rule 17f-4 under the 1940 Act, as amended from time to time.
Delivery of Securities Sold Notwithstanding Section 4.03 above or any other provision of this Agreement, the Custodian, when instructed to deliver Securities against payment, shall be entitled, if in accordance with generally accepted market practice, to deliver such Securities prior to actual receipt of final payment therefor. In any such case, the Fund shall bear the risk that final payment for such Securities may not be made or that such Securities may be returned or otherwise held or disposed of by or through the person to whom they were delivered, and the Custodian shall have no liability for any for the foregoing.

The certificates representing the Shares shall be subject to such stop transfer orders and other restrictions as the Committee may deem reasonably advisable, and the Committee may cause a legend or legends to be put on any such certificates to make appropriate reference to such restrictions.
